Keep the quench tight, and run the best premium pump gas you have in your area and you'll be OK.

Listen and look at the plugs carefully for any signs of detonation- just like should be done w/any high performance engine.

This assumes things like the cooling system is adequate, the ignition timing not excessive (you should be able to run max power timing, but do not run anything more than what's absolutely needed), and the fuel/air ratio isn't too lean anywhere in the powerband.
