In no particular order.. Weight, strength, efficiency, aesthetics, cooler provisions, customer service, etc... very happy with the unit thus far. Frank and Skip have both gone above and beyond for us as well.

That's how it started for me, I saw a 2012 with the new factory heater hoses. Although I didn't go quite as far as Nathan but was happy to contribute early on to his thread.

I have been trying to get a tubular rear cradle for the last year. Last time I spoke with extreme they wanted 10 orders. 4 is reasonable. If you end up buying all for then selling, I will pay up

Kind of hard to believe this whole mess started with those dang heater hoses. Damn you, GM! LOL

Maybe we should make a group buy thread so that we can get four orders coordinated and submitted at the same time. With us two, that just leaves two more to go. I would hope there are two others that would want to drop approx. 40 lbs and all the other benefits that come with a tubular rear cradle.

What would be the benefits besides weight savings for the tubular rear cradle? Would they build it to mount solid to the car eliminating bushings all together?

Everyone at Pfadt Racing is sorry you didn't make it to SEMA; we know how hard you have worked for that deadline. That being said, we check this thread religiously and are already wondering how we will cope when you are finished.

I would be glad to help with some ideas that would help the car in the rear,we have helped the ARH/Farks car in some crucial areas. Weight savings is not the reason to do a rear cradle as the weight is good there.Your car is 1 of a kind for sure if you need anything at all from us give us a call anytime

Do you run a business out of your house ? or is it just a place you work after hrs while working some place else,as thats a 100k build at a shop I am sure easy,...
reason I ask both as you have other people helping you,so either they are paid employees,or co-workers helping after hrs,like my friends and i used to do before i was crippled..
