Yep,you stand correct.Grinding,cutting wheel....

Wish i had a lathe....Life would have been so much easier!About the diff,i am a huge fun ao the solid axle.I don't like diffs....In a little while,i'm going to have solid dogbones in the rear!If that stands as a phrase[:'(].I'm happy it stands in real world.

Also,i'm gonna say something to tease you.....Now that i relocate the motor further back i have a lot of free space.Also i have 20cm of chassis to add on before it hits the body...With all that space there,i don't know what am i gonna do.....Or do i??????????[X(][X(][X(]

Thanks for the pic Giorgos.
Got my sprockets yesterday and most of them have a 10mm bore so I'll probably have to go for a 10mm steel axle.
Still waiting for my wheels though.

I think you will be ok with 10mm....But the motor you have,has heaps of torque.Make sure to make enough support points(bearings) and the do a high revving test just to make sure the axle isn't twisting

Yeah I'll have one bearing at each wheel and probably another one or two on the axle itself too just to be sure.
I like to overdo things just so I know that it's gonna be strong enough straight away rather than trying it, bending it and replacing it with something stronger, if you know what I mean.

Maybe i am just going to try a bit more with the solid axle,but i am going to do the conversion if i get very bored one day

What to do with the free space?Put some very light air there,and nothing else.When you finally have shaved off a lot of weight,dont put anything heavy in there

I use 10 mm steel axle on my car by the way!

Yeah yeah,ha ha!When i extended my Marder to fit the Focus body i got a lot of room in front of the engine,that made me think;what can i put there?I was starting to think of making reverse for the car,but i gave it up.I am going to have the batteries for the lights there now,which are soon to be finished.Waiting for some resistors to get the soldering done
