    Got the front shaft almost ready to bolt back in. I didn't measure the angle but it will droop a lot without binding. What do you guys think obout the home brew? The last one is of the xovee I just finished up.

    It is a 1" zero rate that is milled to 8*. It's 1" thick after milling. It looks huge huh.

    yeah it does....haha. scared me there for a minute. looks good man, get them headers wrapped or painted with something, everything looks so clean/good/new/shiney, they stick out like a sore thumb. :)

    nice shaft.

    Yeah I know. It has got a really worked over 406. Those headers are 15/8 primaries which do not let that motor breathe the way it should. They wont be on there too much longer. That is the reason I have not done anything with them. I should have some video of it on here in the next couple of days. Or atleast it idling hahaha

    Nope, that flange is going to a 205. Keep on guessing. The home brew is equal to a lot of Budweiser, some round stock, some mig wire and a whole bunch of brainstorming on how to avoid a $700 check to High Angle Driveline

    ill guess:

    you used a 1" driveshaft spacer (ive got one of those in my pile of parts) as a flange and welded the yoke to it. is that 1350 or 1410?

    has me thinking bout welding a 1480 yoke to my spacer hmm

    Bingo!!!! Instant high angle..... Now we will see if all that work is worth it. The one in the pics is d44 stuff. If I start to pop those I will step up to 60 parts.

    I used the same shaft I had made at Fleet Pride. Wacked off the end at the tcase. Turned down a d44 axle shaft to fit inside the tube. Then took the stock 205 flange and made my own adapter to fit it. With a through hole in the center for another d44 yoke to fit into. Then ran a weld around the outside and inside
