    An example of what to avoid... the "AC" axles. It'll be on the tag, but this seller put it on the shaft as well.

    Did some digging online. The left hand axle that ends with "BC" is for the v8. The one that ends in "ac" is for the weaker ecoboost. Ending in "38-BC" is right hand, and "39-BC" is left hand.

    Went digging in the junkyard today with the CV spider in my pocket. Turns out the 02 explorer has the same diameter shaft ends... but courser splines. The good news is its a solid heat treated shaft and its the same thickness its whole length, necking down only for the splines. I also called moser and talked to them about sending in a core shaft and paying for two pairs of CV axle spline service and they're happy to do it so long as they look everything over and it seams like it works. Cutting the heat treating off the hollow shafts just wasn't sitting well with me. I also discovered that the two left shafts are different on the ends in diameter and one had a slightly smaller cv joint pair... I'm guessing i got one v8 shaft and the other from a v6 car. Both are splined the same into the housing and at the hubs... but one is stronger than the other with bigger cv joints. The left and right v8 shaft have the same size cv joints... its just the spare left shaft had some differences. Going back to the junkyard tomorrow to compare my cv joint to the explorer outer cv. If they are the same internally i plan on building a hybrid cv. But if they're different I'll pay for 2 pairs of spline service and know that I'll never have to worry about the strength of those shafts...

    The $1,200/pair price tag isn't for shafts, its for the entire thing, 930 cv joints and all. With 34 spline stub axles into the housing and 32 spline stub going into the hub bearing. Totally agree with you on the smaller diameter full floater style shafts.

    Cutting hollow axles isn't my first choice, but they're still head and shoulders better than what came in these cars. Ideally i would ship out some solid shafts taken from a junkyard for cheap And pay for the service of 4 ends to be splined... This would still be incredibly cheap but give me some peace of mind. The core axles themselves are 55 to 75 bucks per side. The end plan is to just shell out the $1,200 for some 800hp axles plus 100 for them to be in a custom length. This is still cheaper and stronger than anything offered before in a 240z. But right now what ill be testing is just how much abuse the least favored setup will take before i have to either get the shafts replaced with solid cores or buy custom made shafts. On monday I'll get all that figured out.

    Measured angles and margin of error etc. So its dead center of its adjustment with this measurement. Allowing some room for adjustments on control arms and some room for suspension articulation without coming anywhere near its limits.

    They are, but they're not driveshaft style hollow. Theres no reason to not cut them. Btw, the right side is solid and the left is hollow. You'll need two lefts and a right to make a set for the 240z. The solid side axle tapers down and can't be cut and splined so i used it as a jig to measure the length needed.

    The super 8.8 bolts in just fine. Measuring the axles and will be getting them cut and splined.

    Have the next 30 days free to finish and roadtrip this... and start drawing it all up so i can get quotes from the laser cutter etc.
  10. Yes. And if using another year Subaru rack, then I think 86 Celica inners are what you want. Or for example an STI rack.
  11. So you spent 3 times as much money for weaker parts with bad geometry... brilliant. All jokes aside, if the s30 tie rods are too short, you have serious UNCORRECTABLE bump steer issues. See, the s30 rack is already too short for an easy replacement to be found for power steering add ons etc.... and that's with stock steering knuckles. The mustang knuckles allow the use of factory length Subaru racks to be used with either Celica inners or s80 Volvo inners, depending on the year of the rack... all the while maintaining correct geometry for bump steer and improving geometry on lowered cars over stock s30 setups. And BC is a great company, they offer custom coilovers for the neon as well for a great price. So getting high end custom valved and sprung bc coilovers from them will still leave you with a cheaper, stronger and better stopping set up.

    No worries, plenty of pressure coming from me. I'm in Oregon again and hoping to have it all together before I need to leave in a week.

    Thanks, yeah baby Luke had surgery at 6 days old, and has had many surgeries since then and many more to go.

    I never stopped working on this, and will see this through to the end. This is my son Luke, he is 9 months old, and was born with half a heart. It's a rare condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome. It's fatal without emidiate surgery and even so it's an uphill fight to make it past puberty. He's had several heart surgeries and his first one was the hardest, with his chest being held open for a week. Reason I'm even bringing this up is to get the back story of what we're up against, and what has been taking so long. While we as a family were in the hospital in San Diego for 8 months I spent a lot of time researching everything currently available for high hp datsuns and the prices, weak links and other issues i came across currently on the market. I then dipped into my personal gun collection (which is a shadow of its former self now) and over time purchased parts for this conversion, while measuring and doing more research as I went along. I just recently finished up the actual design and have test fit everything and plan to road test it all soon. I just want everyone to know that any hold ups I have aren't because I'm vacationing in Europe or have lost interest in 240z cars or playing with other toys. So long story short, if I can make this kind of progress while fighting the fight of my life, you can bet your butt I'm seeing this through. And yes I'm seriously considering doing a tacked together kit as well for the diy types. But just to make it clear, I will absolutely NOT be sharing or selling blueprints or CaD files. I sacrificed what little bit of time and money I didn't even have to spare to bring something like this to market, and I don't intend to give it away. It will be the cheapest, strongest and most versatile bolt in diff setup you can put into these datsuns. But it wont be free. And no, this isn't my first rodeo on bringing something to market where there was a need. The 2014 mustang disc brake adapters I've designed for classic mopars have saved a few dozen people a total of 30k if not more so far. And yes, have put food on my table and diapers on my kids when we needed it most.

    Quick update, rough prototype is finished and test fitted in car and on the diff itself.
