    What is the advantage of the new axle on a drag car? Being fwd I can?t imagine you?re looking for a wider tyre out back?? Is a weight & extra stability thing?

    Yea weight and due to running such thin rims on the back it just gives that width back for a bit more stability. This is the fcs trigger wheel I'm going to run so will make it a lot easier to fit the caliper mount etc aswell rather than messing about with standard beam . One thing I just found out was if you only run say 4 tooth trigger for the speed this obviously divides the tire into 4 parts meaning the car can move let's say 400mm without a signal . It doesn't sound much but during a launch this much can allow the car to fall flat on its face with that high res wheel it picks up every few mm so much more precise readings for the ecu to work out

    Bushing tubes made up and some steel temporary bushes to keep it all square while I build it in the jig

    I have 2 more smaller diameter bracing tubes to go to the stub axle plates aswell but they can't be fitted until I change all of the bolts to cap heads due to access to get them in and out once its on the car

    Beam all welded and the jig works perfect no distortion what so ever . Cars gone for a little trip out for head rebuild and refresh
