Thought I'd see something like this because of the title. LOL

Nicely done with the old shoe!

How is that reverse stagger working for you? I'm considering doing the same thing in the MS-3. I'm staying square in my civic.

i like the reverse stagger, Andy Hollis runs a similar setup on his one lap crx

On my EF civic ice racer I had 7 axles fail(5 drivers and 2 passenger sides) in one season,we only have 6 weekends dammit.You do get good at swapping them,think I was down to about 8 min start to finish without really trying.

I never figured out why,ran the next season with fresh reman'd axles at the ready the next season and didn't have a single failure either side.

I started adding a short pc of wd40 spray tube under the small end clamp,theory was it kept the boot from ballooning with heat and the grease from slinging away from and staying away from the joint.

I'm leaning toward an axle length problem or a bad LSD
