Starting to look like that the 1303 hub and wheel bearing set are a rare item on ebay. There are type 1 to Porsche 930 (911) stub axles on Amazon and elsewhere. Looks like that might be my best...

Unfortunately you can't have what is poorly called semi-independent suspension. You can't get that movement. You would have to make the sprocket on the live axle on like a pivot of some type that...

So I'm trying to weigh the costs of buying 2 stub axles for my project or getting a set machined. What I have mainly found are just the out stub axles that fit the 1971-1980 VW Super Beetle (I have...

It looks like it's a race kart. You should be able to get away with a 12 to 60 5:1 ratio and be just fine. If you really needed a 7/8" clutch, Max-Torque might be able to hook you up with one, you'd...

They are used to make a gear ratio more achievable, when say you cannot get a smaller engine sprocket or larger wheel/axle sprocket, or it's a matter of needing the clearance because of packaging....

I'll bet it'll be limited to no much above 3600rpm unless someone can figure out how to do it above that. Ecotrons has been out for years as a conversion kit. But I'll guarantee that this kit will be...

Well finished the front brakes today. Though, I think my Craftsman 1/2" torque wrench might have given up the ghost. It didn't want to tighten up internally to 100ft/lbs. Doesn't sound like ACE,...

I never checked but, what's the pitch for the sprockets? I'd say get a 72 tooth on the axle that will bring you to 8 to 1 (not including the 10% over drive with a 6" driven)

You don't have to. I'm more curious on how wide the front will be with wheels and tires on. My brother told me that I should use one of these, but shorten to like 30" for mine, but I don't know....

So like an idiot, I did not know that those are modified VW bug I-beam axles, with torsion bars. So for the front your going with around 40 1/4" wide beam then?
