As some of you already know, I have been working on producing rear axles for the spec.B. The project started off as an axle bar only upgrade (all the info on that project is in THIS
thread). After the bars were made, the company I've been working with (RCV Performance) started R&D for complete axle assemblies.
After many conversations and a couple visits to their facility, a final design for the CV's was decided. The axles will a 930 style CV joint for both inner and outer CV's. The components used will be "standardized" parts that would be easily available, if needed.
The bars will be 1.25" thick.
After my conversation today, RCV has fully decided to enter the performance street car/import market, with the spec.B axles being their first product. More Subaru axles will soon follow.
The axles will NOT have a horse power limit. Yes, you read that right. NO limit on horse power. And to answer your next question, they will stand behind their axles with a LIFETIME, NO QUESTIONS ASKED warranty. If you do manage to over power the axles, RCV will work with you on producing a stronger replacement.
RCV will be producing these axles in-house, with American made materials.
They are estimating the pricing to be around the $1,000 mark.
RCV would like at least 7 confirmed sets of axles before starting production. If it comes down to it, I would be willing to buy an extra set to get production going.
RCV would like to list the axles for sale on their website, but asked me first if it would be alright with me. I told them that I would like to give you guys a chance to jump on the deal before making them available at full retail pricing.
Comments? Questions? Concerns? Please feel free to ask anything, and I will relay anything I cannot answer, to RCV.
