Yes Vortecs can run Beehives and work well for higher rpm's if you need to run a single due to the lighter weight of the retainers as well as the reduced mass of the spring itself. Also the variable spring rate helps with harmonics.

The downfall is that they're roughly double the price of a comparable conventional spring, that along with the cost of the mating retainers.
