09 -V Differential is a very heavy duty design!
With no wheel hop, this setup should rock.

Getrag is building the diff.
While the base CTS has an aluminum housing,
the -V has a cast iron housing and a four pinion diff. (look that one up, I did)
It's WAY stronger right out of the gate.

The extra weight in the -V is there for a reason!
It seems they learned lots with the race cars!
It did not slow them down at the "ring".

Where exactly is funk city?

What is this -V?

All nouns are capitalized in Deutsch. The 'Ring. Das Auto.

Man all this info on the 09 V really makes me question my resolve in not getting rid of my 05 V and getting the 09 V in Oct.:suspense: If I do give in I am going to have one hell of a fire sale on performance parts for the first gen...:yup:

I am sure the '09 is worth its weight in gold-they learned a lot from the current owners bitching so much.
I would say the '09 diff is perfect, but that will only be true if they can retrofit it on mine for less than $5K.

Urb,

I hope GM would make a conversion kit to put the new rear in the gen1's. That would be nice of them.

Wait til you see it actually work and at least there will be something to modify. That diff unit sounds expensive with quad pinion setup etc...

But I believe this is part of a system so-to-speak.
Axle hop, vibration, heavy-duty-construction, ride, and overall traction are just some of the components addressed in the new, improved "system".

It is reported that the Cadillac engineers sized the axle shafts differently (left vs. right) to reduce harmonic resonances.
This has also has carried over to the Corvette.

Yes but can anyone confirm how many wheels the new V will have?
