The rear axle is 1/2", but a hard-coated, precision ground aluminum shaft I got from McMaster-Carr: #5911K23. The halfshaft is 10mm, to fit all the FG gears and pulleys, which as you know, are all metric. (#1482K11).

I kept a record of most of the part numbers and sources for everything, anything you want to know... I probably wrote it down somewhere.

2pock.. The Red car that is posted here in this thread Is Closer to a Prostock car,,, A Funny car would have a Longer wheel base and the Body wouldnt be as wide... You can get 1/4 scale Funny car Bodys from www.quarterscalelegends.com,,,,, look in their store.. I think MROgle posted the link.... I Build 1/4 scale Funny cars, Maby I could help you also.......... John

Here is a winter project that I'm working on. Anybody have any feedback. Check out the motor it's a 4 bolt, PUM designed for RC cars, it's a full mod with adjustable timing and all kinds of neat porting inside. It should be fun.

Performance RC,
You have been putting out some great projects with some Real Deal Ideas, I admire your differents in modifying chassis from nothing to something. One last thing do you sell those tires and rims in your photos.
Thanks Warren528[8D]
