Weld up the center diff or buy an aftermarket solid center diff. Remove the front axles leaving the outer part in the hub.

If you make any kind of power, you will break stock axles and R160 diffs left and right.

I did it for one of my customers using DSS custom rear axles, custom driveshaft and an R200 diff...

Personally, this isn't something I would do as it would make a lot more sense to me to just start with a car that is already RWD, but different strokes for different folks I guess.

to add to the diff and cv issues...once I got on an R180 and Stage 5 DSS axles, my u-joints in the driveshaft started taking a beating...just a heads up.

I went through two R160's (4.11 and 4.44). Axles, I've forgotten. I was making a measely 240whp on a low reading Mustang at the time (stock 04/05 STi's made 200-205'ish). Never broke the driveshaft as I went to a 6-spd setup.
