Durability of Redline Dash Panel

So I ordered a Redline Gauge Works dash blank for the Duster, and it arrived today. I was somewhat disappointed when I picked it up and felt its thickness, or lack thereof. My question is that with its lack of reinforcement, will it actually be able to hold up to repeated drag strip launches, even in a slow (mid-12s) car? I would figure for $100, the plastic should at least be as thick as the retail packaging that anything comes in.

Or are my fears unfounded?
