I have been searching the difference from this site and also from internet with no luck. The bulge on vlsd box is about 40mm further from the engine "surface" but it would help if someone knows the excact difference. I need to have it made if i cant find the right one for sale.
So, if you have the info, i would really apreciate it.
Season starts soon and we don't have drive shaft 馃槙

If you get the TRAKMOTIVE NI8134 / NI8123 from Rock Auto, or any of the Chinese axles that are available nowadays, before you install them I would recommend taking the boots off and filling them with some good grease. They don't have enough grease in them from the factory. I think they just skimp the grease to save money. $50 for an axle is crazy low.

Yes my p10 is probably too low and the axle is binding on high-speed cornering. I refuse to raise my car.

I used https://www.amsoil.com/p/dominator-synthetic-racing-grease-grg/ I bought a few tubes, it almost cost more than the axle did.

I did a little over 8,000 miles last year on new axles with grease in them. I'm just going to keep going, as I have a set of spares in the trunk ready to go should I have problems.

Back when I ran them as is out of the box, I broke a many CVs. One of them I installed while at the track (because I broke one) and then only got 4 laps before I snapped the CV cage on the replacement. Otherwise I was averaging 200-300 miles up to like 1400-1500 miles before something went wrong; sometimes inners, sometimes outers.

We had our share of axle problems last season at Nurburgring. Additionally to low level of grease these new cv's are way too tight. We have now clearanced and polished the gages and filled joints with gearbox oil.
Still need the info about the length of the

shorter vlsd shaft. Rockauto says it is 619mm, but the pic of that one is not vlsd model as it has the short inner stub.
