    I called them to ask them about it and they where saying that it can hold 400 HP but the guy was completely clueless... (distributor) OBX distrbution really sounds like a mom and pop shop...

    400 hp? that's useless.....they def. have no idea what they're doing, much like a clutch it should be rated for tq.....i think the only way will be to get one and try it out. <sigh>

    Robert, how much is the cost price? I was going to have my friend open an account with them so we could get the cost price.. i'm guessing 350 or 400

    heh. you may want to use a grammar check before sending an email like that...

    either way, i think it's a safe guess that they won't warranty jack if we blow it up. the question is, will it take it?

    hey guys all we need is 50 people to donate $10 each, and we can have Adam test it for us. Anyone with me on this one? I think its the only way we are going to find out how strong they really are. Otherwise we will never know, and the random kid with a stock mk3 who buys one on ebay will not be able to give us a good idea on product quality.. We need a high hp guy to really beat the crap out of it. I got $10 to donate, anyone else? We need a sticky

    Seems as though the vendor's don't know their product very well with ranges from 4-6-8+hundred hp. For the sake of research I sent the product seller a msg and asked how much hp and tq it could hold. He said "should be good to up to 5-600hp."

    I'm a car nut because when I'm walking away from my car, I find myself looking back at it.

    But also the question would be how fast could drjonez install it and beat the crap out of it to see if it will hold?

    I already have an account with OBX.

    The cost is obviously something that can't be posted.

    Good idea Kev. Lets get this rolling! We need a sticky thread so we can create a bigger buzz about the donations/testing!

    Awesome. So i guess we will need less than 50 people.

    I'll edit and start the list in my first post so everyone knows what the deal is.


    Robert - Can you do me a favor and PM me your price so I know how many people we need.

    I'm in for $10. I just sent Adam paypal cash. He's been good to me.

    I think Adam would be a great Rear End Tester!
