When I do get the next clip(s) posted...be it from Mike who has this production unit or myself, it will be just the axleback section. Our mid-pipe with resonators isn't done yet and I need to wait for that part before I can post a "real" clip of the catback. I can get an extended "preview" clip using one of the preproduction MadDad(TM) axleback sections and catless midpipes(and no resonators...midpipes from another vendor)...bascially an extended version of the preview that was at the end of the youtube post. When the new midpipe is finally in my hands I will for sure add add a clips once I have it installed...right now I'm just struggling to get a good quality production clip of the axleback

This is starting to remind me of that Morr GB I was in last year. I know I probably should not complain but I still think getting a sound clip should NOT take this long....So there is a hint of slipping confindence on my part.....

I've seen groupbuy options where no one was interested and others where people still want to jump in after it's over. Even if this one doesn't draw more interest, I'm still in (listed as Carl above). The current sound clips were fine to me. I guess the slight problem we have here is no definitive end date.

I'm hoping they just decide to start shipping very soon at the $699 price but then after a few of us get installed and ad our vids then more can still jump into the groupbuy to get us all the lower price!

I understand what you are saying even if your comments are not directed at me. I want to get on the list but I just cannot hear the exhaust well enough over the wind noise to decide if I like it enough. As for fitment and looks, they are great and a couple of the major selling points for me.

Gotcha Madman. I guess I really don't trust the audio on these videos much anyways.

I think the best option will be that I drive down to Centerville so you can install my dp's and axleback and then you can hear it in person..lol.

Wondering why you cannot wait when you don't even have your 1er yet? Are you hording a pile of parts at your house to install on Day 1?

Maddad is a good company and I am going to stick with them even when they are on their hiatus right now. Well, assuming I like the sound of course.

I would not worry to much about it. I had a small pile of stuff to install on my car (a small horde if you will) on day 1 as well.

Though my car isn't here yet, i'm bargain shopping, I found another exhaust that is ready and at great deal...so i jumped on it.

Who knows how long this system will take.

Guys,

Sorry been off the forum for the past week(or so). Our fabricator has been moving into a new building over the past 2 weeks and this has slowed final prodcution plans somewhat. I was hoping to get a final production unit on my car over a wekk ago to serve up some better sound clips. Regarding timeline. The SS tips and the SS ceramic coated tips(the first of these will ship to me for photos and hopefully better sound clips) will be in production within the next 7 to 10 days and shipping. The carbon fiber tips are taking extra time and I don't expect to have them for another 30 days.

So here is a gift for you early adopters...$649 plus shipping will be your price regardless of how many pre-orders are placed. This will make things easier to manage for me anyway since the carbon fiber tips will be a month behind the rest. Don't worry about the orders you've already placed. I will update them to reflect the $649.95 price.

- Rich

Thanks for the update Rich. I will be watching and waiting for those updates clips. If everything works out, which I am extremely sure it will, you will be putting my name on that list.
