the other news is that hill that the derby car wouldnt go up(in 1wd?) the subaru pulled it up.with street tires no less.first tried it in FWD and the front end started hopping,so I put it in 4LO and it just pulled the car up the hill with no drama at all.The subaru was closer and my truck is such a pain to back down that narrow steep hill...
I didnt think that was possible a lightweight vehicle pulling a heavier vehicle up a hill...
subaru is like 2500 lbs before I stripped the interior,Saab is like 3000 lbs before I stripped the interior and added like 100 lbs of steel back into it...

good thing it was just an axle, that should be easier than the diff welding i'd imagine and it might even be under warranty (if you don't tell them about the welded diff!)
fresh paint for a derby car? wow, you're intense!
and some dirt was on the freshly painted side.

As for welding the diff,the engine is longitudinaly mounted.However the clutch is toward the front of the car,backwards compared to RWD vehicles.The transaxle sits under the engine.so that the differential ends up being in the exact orientaion as a rear diff on a subaru,or rwd car.There is just a bolt on cover for the diff,unbolt that and its easy access for welding,providing you have a floor lift or put the car on its side or something...
makes for equal length halfshafts...
