My 240 had about 25k into it by the time i was done with it... so it was feeling quite good. But i just hated having the same thing everyone else did.

So i just heard back from Drivelines NW, and my Driveshaft, because of the length, and the power it will need to hold... is going to be in the $600 range... Thank you Subaru for not using rebuildable U-joints...

Good luck man! I converted mine to RWD with the stock motor/5sp before I did my ej207/6sp swap. It was a lot of fun!

Not bad looks good but watch out for the front bushings on the t brace they love to wag
and with a solid diff mount you might ask for trouble some day down the road what I would
say to do is get a lock down kit and put solid washers in the t brace. looks killer man also weld some washers in the link mounts and buy adjustable links.

If my axles would just get here I would be at Evergreen and Bremerton for the next events. Sadly i have already missed the first points event...

There is so little left to make this car driftable... im chomping at the bit. A 1-1/2year project finally coming to an end! oi

Love the build, I'm actually going through the same thing right now, Why did you choose the shortnose R200 over the longnose?

Zigerus, I chose the short nose because 1.) I had one out of my 240sx drift car that already has a KAAZ 2way diff. 2.) It is the newer version, and previously, my 240 only had one other owner, so i knew the condition of the diff, and knew i wasnt going to run into "those" types of issues. Right now, im looking at a tubular t-brace a little later down the road...im pretty sure im going to get some vertical movement because of the torque.

TSSFAB, I dont know what my schedule is, but as soon as it is track ready, i will let you know so you can come out to an event. I will gladly give you and your friend ride alongs, just make sure to bring a helmet!

The axles are payed for and are going to be shipped back at the end of the week... hoping to have some film of the two-tire fire by next week, but no promises.

I wish i could say there were updates for you guys... im still waiting on the axles... i suppose there are things i could be working on, such as buying my HID kit, etc. But i have been enjoying the lul in the project. It allows me to save up some money for future enhancements

So axles are back..... but in the typical form of anything that happens to me car wise, it didnt happen the way i had invisioned it.

I sent them axles welded together w/ Subaru outters and the R200 inner flange. Well when Ray got the box back from the company who made the axleshafts, they had not included the other parts of the axles, such as the CV's and flanges.... So lucky me, i get to drive down to Tacoma and buy some new Nissan Axles to get the parts off, then got find some Some Subaru rear axles to get more parts off of.... After the foraging, i then can bring everything to Drivelines NW, and have them to put everything together. I hate project cars for this reason.

Im hoping to have all of this taken care of by wednesday, but we shall see.
