Searching I saw a lot of posts by them in the "street racing" forums for your region.
Supposedly they are a fairly respected speed shop but would be interested in hearing opinions of locals.

They are an honest and very knowledgable shop. The owner shawn is really dedicated to making sure everything is perfect. He is there past midnight on many occasions and has even pulled all nighters just to get stuff done for customers. The prices are really great as well. I just had them fabricate a 3.5" MAF housing for me. I bought the parts and he did it for cheap! Just give them a call and talk to them.

You know anything about Nathan?

He supposedly has some DSS axles that prevent the horrid wheel hop issues that the CTS-V has when launching hard from a stop. This is a problem that NO ONE in 5 years has been able to solve. So I am slightly skeptical but your comments make me feel better though.

I don't know much about nathan other than his cts-v is pretty badass . I've seen him around the shop and he seems like a good guy from what little i've seen of him.

im confused about how axles would help prevent wheel hop.

axles that dont break because of hop is one thing. axles that prevent it dont compute

From what I remember with my friends 300zx was that the wheel hop was from the rear axel allowing the wheel to push forward in the wheel well. so if you were looking at it from the side, the wheel would appear to move towards the front of the car, that would cause toe in and loss of grip, as the wheel moved back to the center of the well it would bounce off the ground to reduce grip. Imagine trying to hold a dremel wrapped in rubber still against asphault, it would be bouncing all around. Assuming that's whats happening to the CTS, super stiff axels (or some method of stoping lateral travel) and stiff suspension bushings would probably help control wheel hop. In the 300zx I think the problem/fix was the 4 wheel (passive) steering, you just removed it and replaced the parts with non moving ones.

Here I found a pretty good video, watch about 1:58 and you can see how much the subframe(?) moves right as the wheel hop occurs

god clip logan but since axles are only held by pins to the transmission and to the bearing its not the job of the axles to prevent the wheeel from moving front back or side to side.
