Goddamn Caddy owners have just about gotten on my last nerve. I have never seen such whiny bitches in my life. You guys want to cry when your rear end blows up. Then you whine that a REDNECK is building a solution, then you whine when it takes too long. Now you are going to whine when I say it costs more than $5.00. **** it.


YEAH I WOULD REALLY BUY SOMETHING FROM THIS GUY TOO. WHAT A ASS.

leave the guy alone, he went out on a limb to build a bullet proof rear that will handle the big HP. I applaud his effort, and as a result, he will get orders for the rear. Im sure it wasnt cheap to produce, but at least he put forth effort as a result of a perceived need. That someone should call him a redneck is, well, just plain stupid. Apparantly MM has an aptitude for doing this kind of custom work and this work takes time. Now everyone just needs to relax a bit and let him finish.

As for my comments, just look at what you guys post. I havent gone and said a cross word about the Aussie solution, I havent claimed to do anything I dont feel I can do. I havent even come up with a price that is fair to all involved. Yet I get emails and phone calls from alot of you complaining about something that isnt even ready for production. I hear the complaints about road noise. Nobody including the Aussies can even comment on that until one of these kits is out. I get complaints about the cost. Myself nor the Aussies have even stated a price yet. Then the complaints about exhaust etc.

Quit complaining, if you want to give constructive criticism fine I will listen.

I must be missing something. Maybe I haven't read all of the right threads/posts but I haven't noticed too much whining. Sure I've seen some complaining or people pointing out that it is taking a long time but not enough to encourage that kind of response. Just my opinion.

Let's not have this situation spiral out of control.

I have no idea what the truth is when it comes to Madman, but I DO know that GM has put us in this situation, NOT MADMAN, NOR KURT. These guys are trying to HELP us with a solution.

To complain to these guys is utterly mind-boggling. If that is true, I'm sorry, but what a fu*king disgrace to the V community. However, I must have missed the part where a lot of complaining was going on...:confused:

In any case, the hard reality is that we don't know anything yet. Any solution needs to be tested and evaluated big time. Until that is done, it is absolutely pointless to complain. Let's see what happens, THEN discuss it. There must have been some complaints going on somewhere---not on the V board perhaps??

I'm just baffled how anyone could even think to complain about anything related to the rear end and an aftermarket solution. How someone can make the connection that it's a 3rd party's responsibility (i.e. Madman, Kurt, etc.) to make our rear-end "right" is a couple of cans short of a 6-pack...

First off, Brian (Madman) may have went a little over the line with his comment, but people on this site do COMPLAIN about everything. I've been on the site for a long time and can vouch for that.

If there is anyone here that would have a complaint against Madman it would be Parker and he hasn't said a word. It is his car that is getting the rear end (which is having to be built from scratch) so if he isn't complaining I don't know why other people should be. There are numerous threads on the other site that talk about the new rear end and what parts are having to be made to do it. I personally think Madman has been pretty courteous to a lot of the people that have had durogatory comments toward him and Thunder Racing. 80% of the people on this board complain about there rear ends and when someone offers a solution the ridicule them and expect to have something built in a month. Truly Amazing.

I am hardly a bitch, however if I went to a dealership and got called a bitch, Id walk out in a hot minute. I dont need to go to a dealer for a car, I can buy them used, etc...new cars are a want/desire. The new diff is a need, and something that I know I will be installing.
So, call me bitch, douche, yambag, whatever...I couldnt care less, just give me a rear diff that works...

ShaneI read every post here, every day.
Never have I heard anybody complain about Madman or ThunderRacing.
They may reply "updates" or "bump" in the Aussie thread and seem impatient, but even then its a minority of posts.

What people do in EMAILS or phone calls should not reflect upon this forum's users. The only person who can speak for this forum is Administrator. For the other forum admin (or mod or whatever) to take a shot at this forums users for something I see no evidence of....well lets say I'll take my orders to Summit Racing now.

Our rear end has been called redneck, backyard, homegrown, and a few other things all from this board, so I can see where a little hostility come into play. Yet we used all of the finest racing components available in the industry including a Billet al housing, 900hp totally custom one off axles, Strange center section (not the cheap Chinese crap off of e-bay), and a 100% custom driveshaft. Now tell me where backyard or redneck engineered comes into play, other then the guy welding it up???:bigroll: Oh and to let you guys in on a little secret Brain's not even a Redneck, he's a Coonass.

This looks like a classic case of things getting really out of hand because of one or two comments.

I know that everyone here is looking forward to a diff solution, and most of the members here are class acts. Someone a little frustrated probably made a comment they shouldn't have, and Madman's response was uncalled for as well. That's why he's an engineer and not a PR man. That still doesn't mean it was deserved.

If the people from Thunder Racing are reading this, please remember that everyone here has the cash to drop 50k on a car that most of us don't use as a daily driver, so it's a good group to be pleasant to. The worst thing would be for all of the capital you've invested in R&D to only end up selling the prototype because an engineer made a rude generalization.

I don't feel we should attack Madman for his comments, we should find out who has been doing all the complaining and give them the aforementioned whoopin. Get off his back, he's doing us all a favor! Do we want a cheap, under engineered product? (GM has one for you!) But if you're like me and want a rear that WILL NOT break and has 0 problems, be patient and let things come at their own pace.

I bet there's some behind the scenes poking and prodding that is going on which is causing more stress.

Imagine this...

You're a coonass working in a hot and humid bayou, doing your damnedest to put something together which has never been done before. Trial after trial, hurrying up and waiting on your suppliers to deliver parts and materials, all the while you are getting more inquiries by the day.

Phone calls, emails, posts on the web, faxes and letters. You spend half of your time reading and replying, the other half waiting and once you actually have some parts to work with, you get more inquiries. They all seem to blend together; where is the solution? Why is it taking so long? Is it going to be expensive? I bet it's too expensive. What's it made out of? What are the exact specifications? Why is it taking so long? Why is it so expensive? Is it noisy? My wife's going to hate it cos it's too noisy! It's enough to drive you MAD!!!

Honestly, I think there is a huge lesson learned here. Do not announce much past the intention of engineering a solution for any particular community. The chatter, rumors and inquiries will only put undo stress upon you. Short of gauging interest and letting folks know you may be coming up with a solution, I wouldn't've been as informative and forthcoming with the pictures and information until I actually had a prototype built and running in a vehicle.

While I do not work in the automotive industry, I do service and repairs for computer systems. Nothing is worse than when you have a customer who has nothing better to do than to call for updates every 30 minutes about something you told them it will take a week to do, and it's been 1 day.

Relate to these gentlemen. Understand they are in a business where there are other things going on. Do you expect them to work 24/7 until the project is done? Does anyone have an idea of the type of staff they have working on this particular project? Does anyone know the difficulty of obtaining the proper pieces to do the work with?

I sure as hell don't! And that's my two cents, bitches. ;)

curious to hear the price. new 9 inch pod with gears, half shafts and new drive shaft. that is not including the whole butcher job that is required to the cradle to get it to fit. i bet the total build cost with labour will be at least $7000. just my guess. no thanks

By all means PLEASE do not buy one and SHUT UP!!!!:violin:

My first wife called me "as$hole" for so long that I thought that was my name:eek:.

Hee, hee...Been there, I know the feelin...:rolleyes:

OK, so what's wrong with being a Redneck...I've been called worse. I would expect being a whiney, snot nosed, uppitty, white collar, know it all, is at least the equivalent.

As I've said for over a year, "when the right solution is available, I'm buying it".

And finally, a word of advice to all the whiners and just remember I said this, "whatever the solution is, the robustness of the rear will be inversely proportional to the noise refinement".

Okay so we have established that MADMAN "Brian" is a mis-placed texan that use to be a REDNECK and now nothing more than a COONA$$ LOL.

What the hell, GM is laughing at all of us and calling us BITCHES, cause they built a car that won't withstand the power on motor let alone with mods. SO case in fact we are ALL BITCHES of GM.

SO if you want to whine about something take it to GM and bitch all you want. Let MADMAN do the work and I am sure it will be one bad ass rearend for the car, sure might be expensive, but over time how much have you lost on the car already. SO make sure to bitch all you want.

By the way Keep up the good work MADMAN and THUNDERRACING.

Quietly following the various diff fixes waiting for the first one that looks bullet proof.
Allot of us do bitch, and I am sure everyone here has a braking point or a line that shouldn't be crossed or they will react as Madman did. Perhaps the person who made the redneck remark would get a bit pissed off if someone called him a "JACKASS" I don't know.
All I know is I/we need a fix and I happily thank those attempting to bring us one. For those of you who won't buy from Madman because of his comments, as they say "don't bite off your nose to spite your face".

As far as the time to build a fix, just look how long it has taken to find a reasonable suspension fix which is about 100 times less involved!

It sounds like Madman is knee deep in Mod Hell.

I would love to hear some of the names you guys call your ISP or the stuff you (we) mutter when we're on hold with tech support.

Same thing only Madman has no one to call.

I was just looking in the Diff Update thread and saw one of my previous posts.

I said that I wanted the new diff to be quiet and fitting a luxury car.
I said "and not redneck"
If I offended anyone with that line, I apologize.
But I was talking about the car with new differential, not any one person.

It's not me whining it's the rear end in my "V" that is whining!

Sorry I had to do it!
the last three cars I have owned has had some problem(BMW M3, Corvette, Porsche)
If you don't like it just sell it then! That's what I'm doing! I think! I can't! I can't make up my mind. Maybe if I just park it by the time my son is old enough to drive it we will have a fix for the rear.

This seems like a typical post where one takes something seriously, its the net, most of us haven't even seen each other.:bigroll:
any who
I'm complaining now:crybaby: , someone give me an extra 100hp a rear that will handle it and oh by the way shave 500 pounds of the v's fat ass and make it come stock 1.2" lower and with a better shifter. Oh and you know what be cool, a V button like the M button that puts us up to 550hp hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm:alchi:

you know whats str8 though, after the clunk from putting her into second there comes a nice loud peel a black patch of rubber behind:rolleyes:

Heres the deal.

First off 1MEANV (Dallas) really needs to quit instigating this. I remember back when the 1st to build the 9" started, wasn't it you that was going to offer a similar solution but didn't. Whats up with the typing, all caps, none at all, some at the begining of every word...STOP that shit.

MADMAN has been under alot of pressure from me and others that are interested in the rear I assure you, and most of his post were just venting from the negative responses from the boards. I must be a big bitch since I was the 1st to dish out the cash to fund this R&D along with Thunder. All MADMAN sees is the critisism from these posts and may interpret them differently than others...whats the word ohhh sterotyping. I agree when you don't know a group of automobile specific folks, they go by the sterotypes others have told them.

Many of you might not know, but the final piece of the project which was the new driveshaft arrived today and was installed and the car DRIVES. I was told you cannot hear the rear end noise, but I do have a louder exhaust than most.

Stay tuned for the 1/4 mile times coming VERY soon!

There was a tremendous amount of bitching going on before.....now it's just about bearable, but anoying none the less.

I don't know Madman or the Aussies, but I am sure they have a lot on their plate. The V project can't be the only thing these guys are doing. Give them time, and it will happen. The design needs to be spot on, especially with the bunch we have.

Madman, wait until your model is PERFECT before you sell it, because if it isn't, you will have more "whine" than Napa, Somona , and the North Fork combined.

It seems like some of the frustration came from SoCadillacs critisism, all the other links I clicked didn't take me anywhere. It doesn't really matter anymore. Just another V owner trying to stir shit up in our world, otherwise it wouldn't be as entertaining.

Parker,

Not a criticism, but rather a statement. However, the proof and burden will be in the results of whoever delivers a differential solution. It will be interesting how these solutions are substantiated regarding their means of isolation and other safety features to deliver that power to the ground and what features have included all the considerations of said solution allowing it to be a daily driver. I hope that owners--out of frustration--simply do not rush to purchase a solution that is not comprehensive and untested.

It will come down to the best one will win. Period. That's about it, plain and simple. There is no finished product to speak of that is out to analyze. If you want to base it upon a progress report, that's a different matter, and the two factions delivering a solution can be aligned side-by-side to determine what factors have been considered, but I doubt that each party will reveal all their findings at this time.

My protoype is now a driving test bed. Is it ready for mass production??? NO it isnt. Is it quiet? Yes it is. Will it live??? I hope so. We will soon find out.

LOL... somebody wants a Z06.

I'm a bitch. I admit it. It's because I sit on the sidelines and wait until some intrepid V owner tries something out and pronounces it 'good' before I jump in myself. Over time I've figured out who to trust, and once one of them boys sez "Do it" or "Buy it," I do.

There's usually some verbal white noise that precedes, accompanies, or follows this pronouncement, but I try to ignore it.

I'm hoping that some of the right folks go for both rear ends so that I have some objective evidence on each solution, rather than just having to close my eyes, hold my nose, and go, "Eeney, meaney, minie, moe..." (Wildwhl is one of the right folks, but unfortunately it looks as though he's already decided to go for Danny's rear end. Does it make a lot of noise, Bill?)

Actually, in this case I'm a King Kahmeamea Beeatch because I'm not gonna buy anything until I hear whether Chrysler is going to produce the Challenger. If they don't produce it, or don't make it the right way, I'll buy a V rear end; otherwise, I'll buy a Challenger and then I'll have to think hard about whether to keep the V.

(For what it's worth, I love Australian beer and babes. And my daddy, although not a coonass, was a bona fide redneck from Oklahoma who could build/fix/retrofit any goddamn thing mechanical that got thrown his way. I sent R&D money down south, and would have sent some up north too if they'd asked for it. I'm a bitch, but I'm an equal opportunity bitch.)
