    Actually no. The tech article can include whatever I want it to, Im using it for search engine rankings. Who cares about tech articles when you control every CTSV related term in google?

    That's fine. A thousand google links to a dead end, is still a dead end. If Hendrix-Engineering is indifferent to the level of its clutch sales I am sure I don't care.

    Unless I'm mistaken, CTS-Voodoo is not affiliated in any way with Hendrix beside being a customer of theirs.

    I dont know why you continuly make coments,i dont care to rush a solution,i tested my clutches for a YEAR before i sold the first one.Itested my 8.8 for 2 YEARS before i would sell the first one.I know this clutch works,honestly anyone that can put in a clutch can figure out the shim size needed ,its about as simple as it gets.What i will not do is Guess,untill i do one myself or till i personaly work with someone(thats why i GAVE a setup to lolly and got no where and as yet have not recieved payment or the clutch back)Im looking to sell 1000s of clutches over the next 20 yrs not to quickly sell clutches this week

    I glad you asked. My commentary on your clutch offering is not a request that you sell an untested product. Rather, my comments on your clutch is simply a request for information - If no one knows what other clutch components are required to make your clutch work in a CTS-V (not an F-body and not a a GTO) folks are not going to buy them.

    Other clutch providers such as McLeod, Spec, and Textrailia will tell the potential customer exactly what they need for a CTS-V installation - if you do not believe this call them.

    I am a Hendrix-Engineering customer - I bought your axles and I am on you list for a rear end kit. My comments are NOT intended to hurt Hendrix-Engineering, they are intended rather to provoke the remedy for a glaring deficiency in your marketability in this niche market - which is the lack of installation details.

    LOL like I said, I will be taking pics, and Im sure Kushan will be doing the same, obviously he wants to get some free press out of this as well, and I don't think he would half ass free advertising - especially after I told him I wanted pics of every step for his website and Hendrix Engineering. The car goes under the knife now on monday probably, though I will wait till hell freezes over if I have to.

    Ahhh now it makes sense... your installer has some skin in the game! That's why you know it'll be a decent write-up.... ahhh I missed that important detail! That's great news

    Voodoo.... you are still supplying your own slave right? you get a stock C6 slave? (Or should I be patient and wait for the write up )

    Im leaving the intelligent decisions to the guy who works on hopped up corvettes all day for a living. I figure he probably knows better than a web marketing geek lol.

    I did not read ALL the postings, (and pardon me for asking again)
    Hendrix was the price for your clutch kit for the CTS-V?
    what what parts are included?

    Monster does sounds like is has some nice parts, but prices are too high. LS7 clutch kit from Luke sounds pretty good for me, but I like to know all my options and prices..

    Re: Hendrix Engineering = QUALITY clutch/flywheel combo

    The car keeps getting pushed back lol. Theres a blue C6 with a blower that had a bad pulley and a few other issues that the client was unaware of when he said the car was running funny. I would rather Kushan takes his time, I want the same level of scrutiny on my car as that guy got!
