Would it work to use a single smaller or larger axle from the appropriate year V to help eliminate the hop? I have an '04 - if I put in one larger axle from an '06/'07 V would this help similar to the DSS solution? I currently am runnin a CAI, Stealth V tune, and Corsa. I may be addin headers soon but I won't be running any real significant power gains for quite a while. What do ya'll think? Has anyone actually tried it?

Been tried, didn't work. It's not the size, but rather the difference in windup that stops the hop.

The occurence I recall was by happenstance. A forum member broke an 04 or 05 axle while under warranty and the dealer installed an 06 or 07 axle because that was all that remained in the parts supply inventory. There is a post somewhere, but you may need to read through a number of wheel hop threads.

As soon as I get my Hendrix-engineering axles in (perhaps tomorrow) I will have a set of 06-07 axles. These were purchased new and installed in my 05 V less than a year go - no more than 2k miles on them. If the experiment does not work at least you would have a set of the stonger half shafts. PM me an offer if you are interested.

I have a set of shafts sitting on the shelf. Are you coming up for V-Day, You could grab them if you wanted a good look (without pulling your own).

ya good find, i guess if when he had one and one and it made no difference.. that the difference btwn the years was not big enough.

i dont need to see any in person, pics are fine, really needto see the center shaft of it disassembled.

now if somebody is looking to give away a 06-07 shaft then bring it along!

Mighty,

I will happily load mine into my car on Sunday, and take them up to the track, you can disassemble and look all you like, as long as you put it all back together :)

How about this :

I'll bring them to the track, you take them home, next time you are up this way (I'm in Herndon) return them.

As long as you fill me in on your top secret project :)
