    Yeah, we've talked about putting a bigger halfshaft on one side and an even bigger one in the other side to see if this would work. Doing just one side is certainly preferable.

    And I second RangerRob's request for a video. You'd have several sold in a minute with a vid!

    Re: Testing new fix for wheelhop: Custom Axles

    Did quite a bit of fairly hard driving today, no hop what so ever. The diff is still brand new, so I'm taking it easy for a little while then I'll get my balls back and go to the track and leave like I'm in a pro mod. All on video of course.

    You obviously didnt get your previous axles from Luke.... Going from memory here but I know his price for both was less then the dealer here (Canada) wanted for 1 axle.... memory says about $900us for both. BUT, with proof $1800 might be worth it.

    are these off the self axles or custom jobs? either way im gonna give this a shot. I wonder if this would void my warranty or not.

    I know that I am going to regret asking this question, but I feel compelled to do so nonetheless.

    If the different size half shafts work couldn't you achieve the same result by adding weight to one half shaft in much the same fashsion that weights are added to driveshafts to balance them (except the weights, would necessarily be concentric).

    Re: Testing new fix for wheelhop: Custom Axles

    I dont think the point is to have one axle that weighs more than the other. Its to have one with a different torsional strength than the other that way one winds up different than the other. That keeps the harmonics to a minimum and keeps from transferring all of that oscillation.
