I should make some axles out of 2x4's, and sell em for half the price. "Budget wheel hop fix". One will be maple, and the other redwood
1445.00? Wow now the mods are deleting my posts in my own thread? I'm outta here.
im confused here...
n20junky- people asked you for info, vids, pics etc and you bitched at those who asked for it. so now you are giving the guy who provided all of the things you refused to and did so by only being asked by fellow forum members. even the dss offered him as someone to ask questions to. i fail to see how you are helping anyone by complaing after someone came in here and did what you haven't been able to do.
darkman- why are you stirring up so many issues? what is your motive for doing so. all you people that have had v's since they were new and never bother to come up with a fix for the hop, even though it bothered you should be the first people in line to be happy for something like this. are you even going to buy these?
rest of forum- why is everyone looking for extra videos then the ones he has managed to post up so far. flying out to test drive his car? are you people serious? if we wait for that then this will never happen. who goes to a aftermarket vender to test drive their product before buying it? did you guys do the same with the kars kit which hasnt fixed the hop?
these axles work for many other applications that have a smiliar issue to us. he posted before and after vids. what else are we looking for?
sometimes the things on this forum make me want to bash my head against a wall
The first one is simply that we had two potential vendors bidding down the price, when lighting struck from above and one vendor was effectively told to step aside. That struck me as being right out of the Dick Cheney school of business where monopolies, oligopolies, and no-bid contracts are acceptable substitutes for an otherwise free market. That issue has been resolved since one of the vendors has left the building.
The only other issue is whether these axles are in fact stronger than stock. That issue is pending more information.
And yes, if these axles are stronger than stock (2007 version, which I already have installed on my 2005) I intend to buy them.
Starting this thread and mentioning prices in the very first post without being a vendor would have normally been grounds for deletion, but I let it ride because a real wheelhop fix would be such a boon to the community. 10 days later we still didn't even have a picture of the axles, so mpunklil took the initiative to email the manufacturer of the axles and get dynojetman's email, then contacted him to get the scoop. dynojet came in here like a professional, ponied up for proper vendor status, posted pics, vids and prices- all within 24 hours. If n2o hadn't dragged his feet for nearly 2 weeks, he'd be the one arranging the GB right now- that's his doing, not mine.
I suppose I could almost see your point if we were talking about a difference of hundreds of dollars between the two, but an extra 20 or 30 bucks? I can't honestly believe that there's any grief over this, but whatever. After 4 years of no good 1/4 mile times, I'm just looking forward to seeing some real drag launches.
Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)
Well I don't want to drop 1500 I don't really have on something that wont fix the wheel hop.
