So I have just won this little fella, a R180 3.9 lsd from a Subaru STI.
I hope to do something like this with the cv's:
But if not I might settle for this:
Anyway funds for the car are very scarce atm so unfortunately I might not have any updates for a while.

I've seen a lot of STI's do a lot of very hard launches without busting drive shafts. If anything the gearbox or clutch seems to be the first thing to go in them. So I'd say they should be well and truely up to the job.
Bluerat has done some navigating in an ex Cody Crocker car so it might be worth asking him if that was running standard drive shafts?

As for the rallycar, it's a bit of a bad example, he's very hard on thing's and they get a pounding!! I know in the old car, a MY99, the drive shafts got rebuilt every 2 events, mind you the front diff and dog box went back to Mr.Frank at Modena for a full rebuild after every 4 events or 500km! told you he was hard on it. He changed to the fancy $1500 per driveshafts and they lasted a lot longer between rebuilds. I'm not joking when I say it cost's more than $50 a competitive km with these puppies!!
After all that, I'd try the Subi halfshafts, if it's a R180 then most likely it's STI which are stronger. Hope this helps a little. I have a R160 subi LSD for sale if anyone wants one for there pedal car or Subaru??

+1 for me too.
Same deal here, I gave him a quick call with my details and less than 24hrs later they were posted.
Got my Tokico shocks off him
How much were those adaptors? Look's awsome.
Hollinger have a machine that can make something like that in 1 operation.
Interesting to know what they're worth.

aaahh not a bad score then , i dont think the cv shaft from a suby would hold up in a zed very long
Why??? plenty of overpowered rear wheel convverted STI's around.......
i think 500+hp sti's and and wrx's are a decent comparo??? remember the cv is inherantly strong torque transfer mechanism than a uni joint no?? aswell as more efficint without any speed variations/pulsing???, you would be suprised....
