    N20JUNKY,
    Once again Four Things:
    1. What modifications did you make in material (i.e. carbon steel, stainless, chrome molly), and style (i.e. u-joints, cv's)
    2. Did you make one axle diameter larger than the other? Specifically what size (i.e. 1" left, 1.5" right, or 1.5" both L/ R)
    3. Photos
    4. A video for christ's sake lol

    You've got a lot of people here fired up about this possible fix, but it's been two weeks- enough with the teases. If you've got time to mount the stock wheels and test for wheelhop, point your camera at the car while you're doing it and post up some videos on YouTube.

    If this really works, you can sign up here as a Vendor and be the "middleman" who orders a bunch of these axles and sells them on here for a reasonable profit. Good opportunity for you to make some $$$, but only if you post up some proof for people here.

    I live in Charlotte.

    Has anyone PM'd him. Forward any contact info and I'll track him down.

    This is NASCAR country folks. Getting this done around here isn't a big deal if your wallet is deep enough and/or you aren't in a huge hurry.

    As I'm a fabricator by trade, I've already requested any and all prints for the KARS kits and BMR style lower control arms as well as any engineering associated with the axles in question.

    I will be in Charlotte next wednesday for a Texas Roadhouse pre-bid construction meeting.
    n2ojunky - I'll buy beer and dinner if I can check out your V.

    I'll be more than happy to lend a hand for video and pictures.

    First off, if you dont have anything positive to say, keep your comments to yourself. I have not taken videos as of yet for several reasons, the first and foremost if you pay attention and read entire threads before commenting....I just replaced my second diff which was the second of which was not covered under warranty. The last one broke with the KARS III kit installed and not under a wheel hopping condition...so I am still a little reluctant to start dumping the clutch and launching my V only to have the possibility of breaking shit again. Second, my car is very far from stock rear wheel numbers. so it is much more likely to break the still weak upgraded ('08 version) diff. If you are so interested in ending the wheelhop issue that you have since I'm sure your 04 is still under warranty why don't you buy a set of axles and start beating the shit out of your car on video to prove a point. I'm not on the forum trying to sell a product for monetary gains, I'm on here attempting to provide my fellow Cadillac CTS-V enthusiasts with info on how improve the performance of their V and eliminate wheelhop thus ending the continuous failure of our rear differentials. We want to drive our cars cars the way the should be driven, without having the worry of costly breakage
