ok, driveline angle's not an issue, both shaf'ts are 34ish inches long, do you think it's worth the extra coin to get HP center's or would you just run standard cuts?

If strength is your major concern, HP front, LP rear, the way it was meant to be.

I just went standard cut, and cut and turned the knuckles so I would have a good drive shaft angle. , But High pinion is kick ass in the front.

HP front and rear, can't have too much driveline clearance.

In that light weight thing of yours strength should not be a big issue. It's also low enough that pinion u joint angles should also not matter much. Just buy STD axles and point the pinion up a bit. Not as much clearance as HP but should be fine.:)

HP front, LP rear. Yet all my scratches are on the front shaft??? HMMMM:confused:
Cuz you can't drive, Helen Keller!

By the time the obstacle gets to the rear shaft, you are on the end of a cable, or stacking rocks!
:flipoff2: :p

thank's Rick, that was kind of my thought too, and since i'm also maxed out @ 5.38 in teh HP, and with my 1.6l motor, a slightly lower gear might be nice :D
