Cheaper yes but only available if you purchase an engine from them. Which makes sense since it involves notching crank and gears.

Not sure about rest of the assembly but I've seen the splines. It doesn't look pretty lol
I don't think we are going to get to see the photos or anything related to this failure unfortunately. The octagon is where threads go to die lol. I saw Ghassans post on facebook about his new solution. Reminded me of the TPG solution that was tried a year or so ago. I ran across another post on another forum where an f82 owner claims his m4 s55 motor slipped with the vtt solution and the capture.

Hopefully a VTT rep or Ghassan are simply taking their time to put together a statement.

Would be pretty unprofessional if they kept quiet about this little anomaly and we never get a deeper look.
Don't hold your breath there and may as well consider it dead and swept under the rug. VTT made about $90k on this latest money grab (based on the 150 units sold claim), so making some statement saying it may not work would not be in their best interest. Can only imagine the amount of customers already begging to return them for anything they can get...

Here was another thread in the main forum that actually had some good discussions about this product:

It did take a LOT of work to get, but EVENTUALLY VTT did come up with this picture about the etching.

It honestly looked damn good, but it is from VTT so who knows if it is repeatable by any 3rd party. This said it would be extremely interesting to see if this etching pattern is in fact what anyone else has experienced out there?

Thanks,
Rob

Ghassan's new solution appears to have helped him achieve the WR.

Would be great if VTT could come back and explain why their hub failed and what they intend to change, but complete radio silence speaks volumes about the situation.

Pretty hilarious how many defenders & shills there were before the shit hit the fan :tearsofjoy:
