Ordered the 33 spline axles from Moser the longest I could get them is 33.25 which means the shorter one is 32.25 if we are going to center up the pinion.  Marty and I are planning on cutting the stock 8.8 tubes close the housing and then turning down some heavy wall 3" ---we will build the axle tubes to the correct length so that we can have as wide a track as possible. By inserting the existing tube coming from the center section; we hope to increase the strength because we will have a fairly long  tube outside the mounting brackets.

Talked to Francis today and he has been busy making the chips fly on our Rube Goldberg air over hyd. clutch mech.

We have decide to have two air cylinders ---one will be for completely disengaging the clutch. Other one will be used for trans. up shifts only. 

I know, I know need to get a camera to Francis.

This off season has gone an entirely different way than I thought--we are working on Mechanical things and not aero things..

We soon will start reworking some things in the cockpit for shifter and chute control also will be doing research on rpm signals such as shift lights and such.
