View Full Version : RCV performance Chromoly outer axles

Ok guys, Like neverfastenough's previous thread from a while back, I have spoke with an engineer at RCV performance and he has agreed to discounting us some 28 spline 4340 chromoly outer axles. Since that seems to be what every one keeps breaking, I think this will be a much better alternative than the $1,700 axles from DSS. I know the outers is what I keep breaking anyways. Here are a couple pics of the product:

From neverfastenough's thread(hope he doesn't mind)

The way I would like to do this, to make it easier on me, is to get a count on who wants a set of these, then I'll call the engineer and judging by how many people we get to buy them, the bigger the discount. Right now these are $210 a side, the more people we get, the bigger the discount will be! He has already told me that if we get 10-15 orders, we will get a 10% discount, and they will get cheaper from there. When we are ready to buy, I will set up an open and close date with Paul at RCV, and you can call him and tell him your with SCCOA, and you will receive the discount. This makes it easier on me, the company, and yourselves. Lets get a count started guys because they are ready for some orders!

Do these function as the ball bearings distributing the load applied? As opposed to the 3 rollers inside our current CV joints? I'm having a hard time seeing how/what this replaces.

These are a stock replacement for our outer CV joints on our axles. You disassemble your stock axle and install this outer in place of your current stock one. Most of us are breaking the outers at the shaft goes into our hub. These are virtually unbreakable

Sorry guys, I have been busy and should have kept this bumped to the top of the page. But yes, this is still on, I can get us a discount as soon as we reach 15 or more people committed. I only have 5 committed at this time including me for a set.

We are currently at 7 sets if everyone that said they are in only buys one set. A couple have said they may be in for more than one. We have to have a 10 set minimun to get a group buy. So if you are in for a set, PM me with how many sets you want, and your first and last name so I can get an official commited count. This will happen as soon as we can 10 sets commited. I'm looking to set it up towards the end of January or beginning of February, but if we can't get at least 10, the buy will be on hold until we do.

Thanks guys,
Ben

We are now at 8 sets, but I see that madmikey and Dave said they may be in for more than one set. Dave and Mikey, if you are both in for 2 sets, that will make 10 and we can go ahead and set a date for the group buy. As soon as I get 10 sets, I can set it for any date you guys like, you 2 just let me know if you are in for more than one. Thanks, Ben

Unfortunately right now with recovering from the holidays, I am going to have to stick to 1 set. If anything changes and I can swing a second set, I will post it here.

smith181992
01-13-2014, 06:46 PM
Same here, I can't even afford one set right now, I'm just counting you guys right now. Hopefully I'll be able to get a set before the group buy is over. I've sank all of my money into a 4 valve swap and it's not gonna do me any good because I'm just gonna snap more axles. Lol

Please let me know our status

Alright guys, it appears that we have met our 10 set minimum! :) I will speak with Paul at RCV first thing Monday and see what kind if discount we will get and get back with you guys. If Paul is ok with it and he still has plenty on the shelf, I would like to set the group buy up for February 17th, to give a few other members a chance to get a set if they haven't noticed this thread. Thanks for all of your interest guys and be looking for an update on Monday!

I would love to do a second set, especially if it would increase the discount, but just don't think there is any way I can swing it :(

Hey Ben,

Sent you a PM. What is happening with this group buy? You stated that you wanted to open it up on the 17th. It's the 21st, and no info has been posted, and you have not responded to earlier posts or my PM. Is this still happening?

Please post up with the purchase contact info, or at least an update with what is happening

Thanks

Adam

Guys,

Ben might be too busy to carry on this group buy and as he stated he may not even be in for a set so it might be asking a bit much for him to administer this. I haven't spoken with him, but either way I'm willing and able to take over. I'd like to get my set before spring too.

I can contact RCV and verify the group buy status on Monday.

Dave, did you get any info from RCV?

I went thru the thread, it looks like unofficially we've got 12 people commited. There was another attempt at this a few months ago that fell thru, there were a lot of different names there who commited. I've been kinda post whoring trying to build up some more interest there. :o Like to drag some of those guys back in! :D

If it'll help, if we can get the price down to the $175 ea. mentioned at the start of the first attempt, I WILL do 2 sets! MAY be in for 2 even at the 10%, which would be $190 ea. Got a feeling with the project motor we've got going for the Warbird, I'm gonna need 'em! :eek:

Please let us know what you've found out

Thanks

Adam

Hey guys! Sorry I've been really busy with things trying to get my car going for race season. I apologize for not replying, but I just spoke with Sean and he is willing to do $185 a side for us and currently has 20 sets in stock. If you guys are ok with opening the buy on March 3rd, he is ok with that. Let me know if you guys are ok with it and I will let him know! The buy would be open from the 3rd-14th

Also, at $185 I'd be in for two sets. Do we just need to call them up and place our orders now? If that's the case maybe have people post up when they have sent in payment so we know where the group buy is at.

The third works. Is there anyone we should ask for specifically to be sure everyone is on the same page? Also, what is the part # we should be asking for? Want to be 100% sure that I get the right parts. From searching around the site it LOOKS like it would be #301174cc-28m (outer CV in 28 spline)?

Thanks

Alright guys, looks like we have plenty of people in for a set! The group buy will open tomorrow, and will end on the 14th. I will give you guys the number to call tomorrow and make your order, I want to give him a call tomorrow and make sure everything is still set to open the buy up tomorrow before I post the number, but all you guys are gonna have to do is call and say you want a set (or more) of the 28 spline outer cv joints (part number 716-70RT) and you are from SCCOA and he will give you your discount, and they will ship to your address of choice. I will give you guys the number tomorrow! Thanks, Ben

Oh and I should mention that RCV currently has 20 sets in stock ready to ship for us, it's looking like we may get pretty close to that many sets sold. If more than 20 sets are bought, it's no big deal, they will make more, but he said there will be a 3 week wait on more for time to manufacture them. Just a heads up

Just got off the phone with Dean at RCV. The group buy is approved, and the sales team has been made aware of us! First 2 sets have been ordered:D

You should just need the part number, 716-70RT, and to let them know that it is the SCCoA group buy!

Hey Ben,

No problem, I was probly being impatient :rolleyes: Any way I called several times attempting to talk to Sean, don't hold your breath on him getting back to ya', he STILL hasn't returned any of my calls :confused: Dean got right back to me twice, seems like a hell of a guy, real interested in getting us what we will need. One question he brought up was about CV boots. We don't seem to know if the stockers will work, or if you will need RCV's. I held off, didn't even think to get a price, and will see if stock stuff will work, I can always order 'em down the line if needed.

BTW it was roughly $25 for shipping (will get actual $ when they go out 2morrow) for 2 sets to Cleveland, OH

can anyone confirm if we need the rcv boots as well or not? Want to order both items and maybe we can get a group purchase on those too if we are all going to need them?

aroot1
03-07-2014, 04:08 PM
Dan,

That's a great idea! I shoulda jumped at having them add those to the group discount when I was asked, didn't even cross my mind :confused:

Nobody at RCV was sure about stock compatability, but Dean THOUGHT since they were based off stock dimensions that the stockers would work.

At the age of these cars it's a good bet that you need boots if you r doing the rear CVs. If they rn't torn now they probly will either as you're doing the job or soon after.

I guess somebody is gonna have to be a guinne pig one way or the other on this, do stock work, do RCV's? I haven't got mine yet, they thought they should be here today, but have not sent any tracking info, so if you want that you may have to ask.

Dan, if you need 'em, try to get them added to the group deal and let us know. Also post up with non-group, and group pricing


Thanks
