    Hi there. One of my old hobbies was messing around with Datsuns and stuff.

    My answer to shortening the shafts was to find other RWD Datsuns and Nissans and strip the CV joints down and use the shorter shafts. For example the S13 200sx shafts are say 2 inches longer than S12 Silvia shafts. Figures are guess work from memory. But get old shafts off another Datsun and you could be sorted

    Mate, forget about welding/shortening axles if its a Mustang (8.8?) rear, just get some Moser shafts off Hauser or someone.
    .....especially if you have a manual trans.
    Build the running gear to take anything you are going to throw at it., the engine is the easy bit to do
    My RR has a 750HP chassis/rear end in it but only has a 475HP 383 ,,,,,one day LOL, one day.

    Thanks for the responses, I have spoken to them and am sending shafts off today with a 4-5 days turnaround 110 per shaft + Vat.

    Always thought that having half shafts shortened and friction welded was a good idea when they could not be shortened and resplined. So you have confirmed what I thought Jack Griffin

    Ironicly Zane friction-welded some 9" Ford shafts for me, but that was 25 years ago and he was at RR then, I think? They didn't break in my ownership, unlike the machined ones they replaced.
