    Hi All,
    This is my AEC Matador that I’m mostly scratch building. Well the body and chassis anyway. Its running ARB t-60 axles (i think) on leaf springs, made stiffer by adding spring steel from a mower pull start. Tamiya 3 speed gearbox from the 1/14 lorry range, a high/low transfer case of unknown parentage off ebay; which i suspect is going to be a pain in the arse. 2.2 military wheels and tyres, which look awesome but cost a bomb and power will come from a 5000mah lipo battery for some really looooooooong run times, hopefully.
    The only problem i have at the moment is connecting the outputs from the transfer case to the inputs of the axles, propshafts . Any recommendations as to a good source/ type would be much appreciated; the front is max 130mm the rear max 140mm.

    That’s lovely, I do like to see a custom build. RCBitz always has a good variety of driveshafts of many different lengths.
