    So what would a fair price be for a stub to stub kit with the large staggered axles be? I might be able to come up with something that will make everyone happy.

    going by that post... i'd say anything you came up with would be good... what kind of HP rating are we looking at? and this is axles for both sides too...

    Yeah, no one (ok, maybe 2 or 3) here is putting down enough power to question the integrity of our stock axles (half shafts). We are just looking for a fix to the annoying wheel hop. And apparently the different sized axles (half shafts) fix that.

    Yea, I'll make axles for both sides. Unless everyone just wants the one large diameter.
    The axle itself will hold alot, 800-1000 hp, who really knows as I've never had one of our axles broken.
    The weak parts will be the OEM inner and outer joints and the diff.
    It's not so much that the OEM parts are junk, it's the fact these cars are not light weight drag cars, they are heavy luxury cars.

    ok so lets say a 500-600hp upgrade... one side is bigger the other is stock diameter but stronger material (or however you think it would work) and a better set of joints... not "overly hp rated" i'll say (although that buffer might be nice to have, it is not nessesary)

    Re: Gforce Engineering half shafts

    I tell you what, if you can come in around what people have been asking for which seems to be a 300-600 solution for wheel hop or at least to eliminate most of it to let us have more fun, then I would bet you sold a whole lots of those kits. I mean hell we watched a couple people jump on almost $1800 axles and even a few opt for a $200 grease option... The rest of us sit here waiting on a solution. I will be honest with you though. Without mentioning names of course other brands seem to not do so well in the bang for the buck area. I don’t ask for cheap just a fair price and my wallet is open when that becomes a reality. I do like hearing that it would be more upgrades then a single piece of bar stock that another brand might be indicating as their $300 possible solution.

    As mentioned before, I am still patiently waiting and keeping an eye on this thread!

    I think you have the wrong person, your post dumping is lame though even if i was to have a cheap set made by a rice tuner. I however never mentioned anything like that before or thought about it at all. Keep your little smart ass comments to yourself and watch who you make them to or at least make them to the correct people.
