  1. Just doing what i can. I should be back to work on it on the 25th, and I'm still waiting to see how the new batch of axle shafts turns out.
  2. Thats literally what several different people are doing. Just not worth dealing with the factory stubs.
  3. Still away working, but before i left I was able to grab a pic of my old 240z stub axle compared to the 32 spline end of my 2015 mustang cv end. Definitely a night and day difference.
  4. Its compatible... no matter what route you go, ditching the stub axles would be a good move. You can find whatever info you like on the super 8.8 swap I'm doing in its own thread so I'm not going to talk about that here. An option is to stick with the r200 and replace the outer uprights with either a techno toy tuning upright or one of your own design, or buy one from someone else. If using the t3 ones for example, you can rock 4 lug 240sx hubs and brakes and just figure out how exactly you're going to connect that cv joint to an inner that works with the r200... either via the 300zx axles and a hybrid 240sx shaft or maybe some porsche 930 race axle setup and finding off the shelf stubs for that application etc. 600 to 700 hp is up there however and hybrid 4 cyl car cv axles may not hold up very long. But the options are out there. Wilwood hubs used by race teams often use a tie wire method to keep things from coming apart.... so if dead set on using DSS axles maybe something like that is an option?
  5. Currently away travelling for work, but before i left, i mounted the setup again to measure axle movement and to see how everything works together and I'll be able to drive the car once i get back and plumb the brakes up. I do have a company making axle shafts from scratch through a member here. Heat treated new shafts instead of cut down junkyard cores. Hopefully those work out quality wise, and that will be the final piece of the puzzle...
  6. Assembled them. Planning on putting them in and seeing how short they are, or if they work. Working with another axle manufacturer to make a small batch that i can sell to who ever buys the mount... because i don't want anyone going through what i went through just to get a pair of shafts.
  7. I literally sent them a sample, and gave them written instructions that were a reflection of that sample. Plus i sent them both stars as well.
  8. Got the axles back from moser. They're not as bad as the first set, and i can finally use them. But they are not the length I gave them and the shoulder on one side is completely wrong. I am now looking for another company for future orders, because there is no excuse for this. They wasted 4 weeks of my time to give me product that doesn't even come close to being correct.
  9. Plasma is "by hand" but stencils etc won't be hard to come up with. The axles I'm waiting on from Moser are STILL not here, due to weather delays. I'll be away for the next week and unable to touch the setup untill i get back. At that point i really hope i return to perfect axles from moser...
  10. Well, the good news is i have a 200 amp mig welder with shielding gas. And i now have a plasma cutter and im decent with it. I have located the last piece of the puzzle, the spindle sleeves and can now make as many or as few kits as i want or can sell. I'm no longer dependent on having to laser cut batches and have some parts be a minimum of 110 pieces. I'll see how far i get over the next few days on a kit or two and will post them for sale.
  11. Sliding sloppy splines aren't in the cards at all. The cv design on these axles uses an octipod... like a tripod but with 8 balls. And it takes up all the movement. The cv shaft was never supposed to move at all. But like you said i can always add another snap ring. The overall play is what concerns me. It'll wobble itself apart and sheer the splines in no time.
  12. Got my axles back from moser and they messed them up pretty bad. Now I'm out a couple of $35 cores and the money spent cutting them. I have contacted them and they told me to email them pictures and that they'll send it up and see what they'll do about it. The only right thing to do about it would be to refund me $70 for the cores, pay for shipping and cut me another pair of axles. But we shall see if thats what they'll do. I'm losing a lot of time on the back and forth regardless, but all I want is a proper pair of axles... The darker ones are the sample stubs i sent in, and the in white ones are the ones they cut wrong... even though they had a sample to compare to... all 4 ends are done wrong. The biggest problem is they cut the space between the splines too wide and the cv star or spider has a ton of slop in it... so simply cutting it for another snap ring on the back side won't fix it
  13. Mocked up the 2015 gt mustang rear brakes and they fit perfect on a datsun if you have the wheels for them. Might be a little tight with these 17 inch wheels but they're perfect in the wheel well. As a side note, i can still mount the 11.8 inch 2014 rear brakes to run a 15 inch wheel for drag racing. I'll just need a spacer at the mount points for the caliper for the offset to match. Can't beat the price. These are insanely large brakes... fronts 13.2 and rears will be 13.
  14. ride height will be a little higher than this... but i lowered it to almost maximum, just absolutely slammed with large portions of my fenders cut out... And took a quick pic to show how much this setup corrects bump steer and roll center on very lowered 240z cars. Part of it has to do with the placement of the tie rod in relation to the ball joint, and the other part of it has to do with the spindle pin being 2 inches higher in relation to the ball join... Its essentially a drop spindle that has built in bumpsteer correction as well, especially when used with T3 tie rods.
