67 mm or about 1 5/6 inches... I had to file away the chassis so the lexan body would line up exactly with the holes. This helped get the right wheelbase. The hardest part was getting the chassis to line up exactly so the shaft would not bind and so it would track right. I cemented some clear lexan to the outside and used a strong epoxy on the inside so it would not break apart along the seam. I "modified" the stock front diff with shoe-goo and found it does not work well with the 4 wheel drive mini cooper. I'm going to swap it out with a normal one and that will solve the top end lack of speed.

More testing this Saturday, Speedemall, don't forget the $$$ you owe me and maybe I'll let you take it for a spin..

This car handles like a dream, just ask Cheff88... He was amazed on how well it preformed....

You beat me to it, John! I have one of those left and have been saving it for a big event. Now it looks like I'll have to revert to my "Evil Bunny" paint scheme for this weekend...

Pics of my new ride:
If you have any spare cone washers, add one or two larger ones to the top, and tighten right down.. that pretty well locks it right down when it comes to wheelspin, but you can still get diff action if you use some decent force for the techs.. I haven't crushed a ball or bearing yet, but who knows how much pressure it'll take...

How do you get extra washers? I bought the lightweight plate kit..
53219 1/10 Touring Car Aluminum Pressure Plate Set

It's machined aluminum, 30% lighter than the regular cast aluminum diff halves. They don't make too many of those anymore (hence the card packaging), but my hobby shop still has a handful of them, $25 CDN. They come with an extra set of cones and one-piece thrust bearing, so I just added a cone or two (depends on how much pressure you want). It's a good diff-rebuild kit..

You're gonna laugh at this but after I hacksawed the shaft to the carrect lenght I used the end I cut off and put it on top of the shorten shaft, aligned the ends and then put both of them in a vice. I just went throught the orginal hole and it acted as a guide for the drill bit. By using the cut end of the shaft I had the exact spot for the hole that you put the pin in for the gear.
