I might differ with that opinion--I've had pedal strike on 170s when making quick maneuvers.
However, you just have to be careful. If you don't try anything too crazy at first, it probably won't be a problem, and you'll get a feel for how far you can lean without pedal strike. With me, it was never something that would cause me to wipe out. I just made some sparks and soiled my britches.
