    I'll talk to my boss about the diff welding anyways...he'll prolly have no problem with it. At any rate I still have a key and alarm code to the place./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I know a demo derby guy that have used that method for years
    he pulls his welded spiders/side gears out and reuses them on the next car
