Very stable. Car feels very balanced. Car is almost exactly 50% front to 50 % rear weight (I have weighed it). Most of the weight (3100 lbs.) is in between the axles.
Feel very safe (cross bracing, etc.)
Manumatic setup for the transmission is very easy and fun. Don't have to worry about a weak transaxle.
Cornering - Turn the wheel and hit the gas. It goes where you point. Power slide turns are fun too.
Customer support from V8 Rail is almost non-existent. They never answer their phone. Rarely answer emails. Won't help solve legitimate problems with their product.
Wait time for delivery was ridiculous. Quoted 6 months by V8 Rail. Build took 18 months. They habitually over-promise.
Radiator is undersized for application - Afco 80127ND – 19” x 24” x 2" thick. It was delivered with a single 16" 2360 CFM fan - it was supposed to be delivered with a 4000 CFM fan from a Mark VII. I upgraded to a 3000 CFM fan made by Spal (at my expense). I talked to Afco and Ron Davis about options for more cooling capacity. Both said that the radiator I had was not sufficient to cool a 500 HP V8. Neither could offer suggestions given the space constraint.
Undersized 19" x 24" Afco Radiator
Transmission cooler and engine oil coolers as delivered were undersized. As the sole source of cooling for a heavy sand car with a TH400, the 11 1/2" x 11 1/2 inch Long cooler is too small. I upgraded to a PWR oil cooler with integrated shroud and fan (at my expense).
Original Long transmission cooler on left. Upgraded PWR cooler on right.
Original cooler installed in car.
Shock valving is not set up to handle whoops. I paid King Shocks to revalve them.
No fuel gauge and you can't see how much fuel is in the cell.
Car was supposed to be delivered with a TH350. I got a TH400.
Car delivered without Park working in transmission.
CV's bind at full droop, and there is no provision for limit straps.
Car jacked up to check CVs at full droop. Too much CV angle causes CV to bind.
Rear suspension/driveline needs help. Stub axle can easily work it's way loose. CV flanges don't allow for enough axle plunge.
CV Flange doesn't allow for enough axle plunge. Even though the axle still has plunge at all times, it beats on the head of the bolt holding the CV flange in place. The flange is not designed with enough clearance.
Old vs. new - bolt holding CV flange in place is mushroomed by axle plunge. The bolt on the outside CV flange broke off in the middle of Glamis and took out my CV. The top bolt shown in the picture is probably in the best condition of all the rest.
Washer used to hold CV flange to stub axle or differential output shaft. Material is too thin and bends under torque. In my case, this bolt was loose once I got the CV off. No evidence of Loctite. The loose bolt was causing the CV flange to move which in turn caused the brake caliper to drag on the rotor.
V8 Rail Rear hub assembly showing set screw used to "hold" stub axle in place.
V8 Rail Rear upright. Stub axle slides in here and is "held" in place by set screw shown above.
V8 Rail Stub axle. Parts are all designed for circle track racing with very little travel.
More typical off-road micro-stub axles have a much deeper dish, and are all one piece so there isn't a bolt to get hammered by the axle.
CV Flange is made of lightweight aluminum that is easily damaged when a CV breaks.

Stay away from V8 Rail. They have a decent concept, but fail miserably when it comes to customer service and product delivery. Expect grossly underestimated delivery schedule and excuses about customers who drive bad or don't pay their bills. Be wary of their lies and do your homework.

Pope, suddenly, remembered that a meeting of the Curia was going on, playfully shook his finger at the Carmelite and pulled on his mantle again. - Wait here. - he threw to the Carmelite, went out and locked the door of the cell.making a dune buggy CV rear axle setup part 1
If you resist, I will kill you. And if you are obedient, we will both have fun and go home. - I threatened her and for prevention gave a couple of resounding slaps in the face. - Okay, I'll be obedient, just don't hit. She said through her tears.

She had never reached such a critical state in her life. Her bladder, although hidden inside the body, but protruded slightly forward, not fit inside her. Another hour passed, and then there was a halt again. Tanya thought about sitting down, covering herself with a backpack, and quickly reclaiming the sand.
It was already dark, and it was hardly possible to catch her doing this.
