    What are your mods? How much HP/TQ at the wheels? I just need to know that these econo axles are going to be able to handle so mid-modded cars and I'll be ready to buy!

    What's the difference anyway, just lower grade materials?

    No,we will still use 300m,this will be a exchange program where we take yourstock axle and change the bar but still use your stock inner and outer.As i said before material cost is only a small portion of the price,machine time is where the moneys at,and it cost the same to machine lesser materials as it does the good stuff.

    So we'd send the axle to you? How long would that take?

    Could be wrong but i'm assuming you pay a certain amount to include a core charge. he sends you axles and u send him your stockers to get the core charge back. Like I said I could be wrong.

    I like the idea of these axles. I'm just starting to mod my V and I'd rather not blow my whole budget on axles. On the flipside, I would also like to know that they'll support a Maggie down the road.

    That would be one way and the fastest way but thaen you'd end up with someone elses used inner and outer so maybe the fastest way would not be the best way as the used inner and outer may be more used than yours. As if that is how is was done the person after me would be getting only very slightly used pieces as my 06 only has 8900 non abused miles and I would probably end up with someones that have 5-10 times the use and abused. So I would think it would be just as he stated above you send it in he uses YOUR used inner and outer and you get the new center with YOUR parts installed back.

    ^ That would make more sense, but the way I understood it was that he would modify your axle. You're probably right though

    that would be great that those of us that want our pieces back have an option as turn around time is not an issue for me and could be done when convienient for me like winter or what ever. Thanks for that option!

    So who is going to actually take their V to the track,run it, and have it recorded? That's what everyone has been truly waiting for....

    If I didn't have my other money pit I would be all in.
