    Re: Testing new fix for wheelhop: Custom Axles

    That is a really good price you posted up n20junky, definately not making a profit on it.. I can take off 10% for a group purchase to be fair to other distributors and to HIGHLY take care of the members here. if we do 10% off that brings the price to $1530.00.. Which is $170.00 in savings. He said he would do 1500.00 each but he didn't realize this would make all the other distributors in America FURIOUS because he is undercutting them, which is only understandable and fair.

    This price is unheard of in the custom axle market.. You guys are getting hooked up big time. As a dealer for DSS I am allowed to take up to 10% off. So if I wanted to make a small profit I would do a 5% or 7% discount.. But since the way the system works is already presented to everyone I will honor the 10% off for all the caddy guys here needing these axles.. Just because I will get more business from all of you in the future, I Have no problem with it. All I ask is please continue to spread the word and if any of your buddies are needing axles to have them give me a call. I appreciate you coming to me and I will do my best to take care of all of you for a long time to come. After all, we are all car guys and are on the same team.

    I can probably work out good shipping rates as well to bring the total price including shipping around $1540.00 landed anywhere in USA.. I would hope this is very fair to all of you, this gives me a small profit and should make everyone happy in the end.. I will create a post tonight about the axles so we can get the order process started. Thanks again!

    P.S. If anyone has any questions about the install or removal of old axles feel free to give me a call or email me. would be happy to help. My rear differential is completely stock except with these axles and I beat the hell out of mine and it hasn't broken anything yet and I have no wheel hop issues to deal with.. can't ask for more than that..

    Re: Testing new fix for wheelhop: Custom Axles

    Mod's, can we make his "order form" a sticky? Our wheelhop issue is potentially our most important concern that us V owners have. Maybe do like group buys of 10 a shot Nathen? When one group of 10 is ordered, then set up another group of 10 after that etc., because not everyone here can drop that much coin w/o saving a bit up. Thats my house payment ya know

    this is exactly what I was thinking.. Once I make the order form let's sticky it up. Lets do them in chunks of 10 or 15.. That way I can continue to honor the same pricing for everyone indefinitely. I agree, this is the #1 problem for us V owners and I am happy to help you all solve it!

    p.s. mods.. can you turn on my PM system please..

    No one reads stickies- I think it's best to keep it here and make a list. You can start a new thread called "Group buy for Wheelhop axles" (or something like that), but as a sticky it will get missed.

    When you make the new thread, make a post like the one after this, that way people can quote it and add their name to the list prior to hitting "post reply".

    Re: Testing new fix for wheelhop: Custom Axles

    Without giving away any trade secrets, can we get some info on materials, hardening, dimensions, etc ? i.e. what are we getting for our ~$1500 ?

    Re: Testing new fix for wheelhop: Custom Axles

    I hate to be "that guy" but it would be great if we could get a 3rd party in here to check out his car. This sounds great but just like a million other attempts we had on here...a few said it works but after the parts really get out to the masses, we find that its not really solving the solution. I'm not trying to accuse him of stirring up business or anything, just a simple 3rd party evaluation would really seal the deal for me.

    I'm definately in on this.

    As soon as the GB form is listed I'll jump in.

    Question though?????

    How have the previous solutions addressed the axle shafts? Does the successful Viper swaps or MADMAN swaps use custom shafts? I'm pretty sure that madman does, but are they different sizes like the ones proposed here?

    Is it recommended to use the KARS with the shafts or are the shafts alone enough?

    A perfectly valid point, Nick.

    This video he posted seems to show no wheelhop, but I agree that someone else nearby who knows what a wheelhopping V feels like should go for a ride with him just to put everyone's mind at ease.
