Hm, be careful: you cannot copy and paste FeynCalc output as input.

simple things just seem to work fine:

Mathematica 8.0 for Linux x86 (64-bit)

In[1]:= !!ben
<<HighEnergyPhysics`fc`

FI; IP = InputForm;

constraint =
FeynCalcInternal[
FV[p, muPAT] FV[p, nuPAT] ->
PolarizationSum[mu, nu, p1]] /. {muPAT :> mu_, nuPAT :> nu_};

Print[" "];
Print["check constraint : ", IP @ constraint ];
Print[" "];
tmp = FCI[ FV[p,alpha] FV[p,beta] ];

Print["contract and using the constraint : ",
IP @ FeynCalcExternal @ Contract[tmp /. constraint]]

check constraint : Pair[LorentzIndex[mu_], Momentum[p]]*

contract and using the constraint :
-MT[alpha, beta] + (FV[p1, alpha]*FV[p1, beta])/SP[p1, p1]
