There was a place called CCI that everyone seemed to love.

They confirmed my order Monday morning, had tracking in my hand tuesday evening and it showed up this afternoon...a little over 72hrs from email to doorstep! That's hauling the mail!

They had stopped production along with almost all major guys in the game a few months back. Seems everyone had some sort of issue or another.

I got on this waiting list back before the new year and this is one of the first new run ones hot off the bench for us longer guys (heh heh heh)...

I don't know when I'll get around to it...or IF I even will...my garage is a mess and I'm the kind to do multiple things at once. Exhaust has to come down so perfect time for upgrade right? :rolleyes:

I am 2 17" beadlocks away from finding out how weak the stock axles and rear are. They're probably next knowing my luck.

Car is a Dusterhoff Stg 4 on 2.85/2.79/flex daily and 2.50/E85 track only. Catless, LMI, FIC1200's, etc.

Will be first time at the track in 3 years since I took my 6spd CTS-V to a heads up airport drag and went 7-1

I believe the previous ones had the slip on the shaft side of the Universal. That isnt the case now.

This is a true one piece aluminum with some big ass U joints that look to be easily serviceable, a sonnax flange on the one end and a custom slip spline collar/flange on the other. I'm gonna guess that was the part that was custom made for this application and what took so long to finish.

If you're rowing gears, you'll find out how weak the axles are, but if you're letting an A8 do the work, I think you'll be fine.

4 inch I assume? Wonder if they make a unit for Barton equipped M6 drivers?

Indeed. 4".

They are also supposed to be offering this in carbon fiber as well as Steel but I'm not sure why anyone would want that version.

I want to say the old one did have some clearance issues with Barton. Not sure if that has since been rectified for this run

Agree; less drive line shock with the gentle A8
