A 14 bolt could be set up for the same price, or slightly cheaper than a 60. Just watch this video http://www.powerblocktv.com/episodes/XT2013-01. Then set up your axle lengths to a stock 60 width (or a combination of different stock axles), so you can run off the shelf shafts and be on your way.

These will let run anything from 30 to 40 spline shafts.

But for a toy I'd check out a 609 for ground clearance and weight savings.

I was thinking about a spider 9 housing with 60 outers, but damn I would have 5k into the front axle!

The problem with using stock 60 shafts in the 30 spline 14 bolt...

yeah I have an old version. It's great not having to worry about wasting tubing at $3/ft. The new version is sweet the interface has changed some but they added a bunch of new features.

replaced the alternator, and in turn chased down a corroded fuse for the ignition circuit. 4wp said the battery ships out within the next 24 hours. then I'll be taking it for a shake down run!
