The V is coming home from Madmans next week. Said the 9" was done, Just waiting on fuel rails.
One of the fuel rails was bad & leaking , So got new ones shipped and they sent the wrong ones. Supposed to overnight them and will have them Monday morning. Then Madman needs to put a few miles on it and make sure there aren't any problems.
Next week I finally get my V back and hope I can keep it long enough to do some test/ runs at the track

How long was she gone total?

Only been at Madmans for about a month, But it's been several other places the last year and a half. I've only had it off and on a couple months since December '06. Hope this is it

Wished you coulda been at Summit Point. Would've loved to see your car. Hope this rearend can handle that power.

BTW, your neighbor is doing a Viper rearend in his V.

This has got to handle it, not much left after this except a solid axle and I just didn't want that at all.
Saw the Viper rear end thing, Don't know anything about the Viper rear and how it'll handle the V weight with the high torque. But I hope it works for him.

Hope the rear is all that is promised/believed/wished for...
Let us know when you make it down to SoFlo, as I am sure a few of us V owners will get together for a little exhibition, I was gonna say meet, but I think a few spirited runs will be more fun than bellying up to the bar and talking about our cars.
