Hard to believe 10 days ago I was sitting in the passenger seat hanging on for dear life!

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you're going to do with this.

you mean rear axle. 

This may take awhile to feed enough money into.  So, I could use some side work!

I think steeevo was talking about the lack of the front axle. And this looks awesome dude but if you are going from an engine and transmission and tires, why not just go with something like a complete chevy small block? just saying.

Also, if you still want that axle, you can pretty much come get it any time. I think I'm gonna go with Chevy leaf springs. Because 1, they are a tad bit longer and will move my wheel base back a tad, clearing the body and slider and 2, because i need them before i drive out to payson with aaron and to drive down to phoenix for my flight.

No big clues. I just know he did that with the last one so I put 2 and 2 together.

Kenny why do you do this anyway?  Is it a weight centering thing or something else?

Just looking at it like that it seems it should be going that way.  Better visibility, move room for pedals, no exhaust to route, and with flipped axles I have instant high pinions.  The only disadvantages may be weight bias and the extra cost of making a center drop front axle and offset rear.
