View Full Version : Cup brace gruppe buy!

September 19th 2006, 22:09
That's right. We need to do this quick. Lanner at vdubengineering is running a sale on "cup braces" 5% off and free shipping to the US. If we do a group buy He said "I will take another 5% off" (that's 10% total :eek: ), and still free shipping :eek: . Who ever want's in, needs to speak up soon. Post here, or PM Me with details for yours. I have four orders already waiting, and was given the suggestion to post here. This won't last long ( I need my brace).

This Friday (29th) is the cut-off date :eek: . This is for takers on the gruppe buy, not dead line for receiving payments.

The border has caused some grief. The IMO was stuck there for 9 days! According to the tracking number, it's on the way. I'm gonna start shipping tommorow.

One question for all the participants:

If you are using the 944 alum arms, please let me know asap via email (lanner@vdubengineering.com). With the alum arms, I can include a spacer to move the upper portion of the shock out, thereby keeping it vertical. Also, longer bolts are included.

I am using alum arms, I did not know this, so thanks for the info....and only speaking for myself,but take your time...Thanks again JR

Damm I just bought a 5 point one from Lanner last week

October 25th 2006, 10:23
Finally got the IMO. Parts are shipping today/tommorow. I want to thank everyone for their support. Also, a pat on the back to Mr. 24/7 for his hard work in organizing. Good man Danny.

I was sweating it for a few days. I kept thinking about those damn customs forms (second guessing myself) being filled out right... I guess they were right... no men in uniform, or black suits knocked on your door right? :laugh:

Lanner you are the best Company to work with, Hands down!

Big thanks go to you for putting on the sale!

Very cool. Thanks Lanner, can't wait to get mine instaled (because that will also mean my type 4 is going in).
Great job Danny.:agree:

MIne is going in a standard beetle with original trailing arms.

Thanks for the sale and for working with Danny to put this together.

Danny, thanks a lot for getting this done.....one question....is the brace coming in a plywood box......or do I need to reinforce the floor with plywood????

October 27th 2006, 22:05
Nigel, It comes in a stainless steel box with a plywood bottom! :laugh: :laugh:

Just look under the box when you get it Nigel... you'll see. :laugh: :laugh:

I got the 4 that I ordered today. And Nigel will be pleased to know that the end caps of the packages are plywood.:agree: :laugh:

October 30th 2006, 22:06

Sorry about the late post!

I recieved mine the 30th of October. Of course, that is also when my home pc decided to die :bawling:

First day at work (and that I have a internet connection) and I figured I'd post that mine made it along with the helpful reminder from Danny! :D

Danny - Thanks a lot for putting this group buy together!
Lanner - Thanks for such great products and I look forward to doing more business with you in the future!
