WTB: Dual VPro XIO Carrier (Octane)

Unread postby Zerolapse » Thu Jul 20, 2017 8:37 pm

I know these are somewhat rare, but I'm looking for a Dual VPro XIO carrier for the Octane.

I don't need the cards, just the carrier itself.

Anyone have one?

oh boy rare as hens teeth...

I just hacked together a lock lever on the second vpro, been running with two V8's for years like that. Once its installed its really a non issue, if it is locked in place, I am comfortable moving the machine around.

There are some dual carriers out there, but I would bet they are kept with the accompanying dual V12 install.

Never seen one, but I wonder: is it just for collecting purpose, or do you have a practical application for it?
In case, which?

Woaaa, awesome! Can't believe one turned up!! Very happy for you! Hope you are filling it with dual V12's !! I never bothered to do anything else with my Dual V8 configuration, but yes I am a little jealous of the proper Carrier, for sure.

Proof that it never hurts to ask! ;-) Yes, it'll be dual v12 with dual DCDs.

I can probably snap a couple when mine arrives.

Doug ( Mashek ) Had a few as well a while back. He might be another source.
