No sir, no lip.  I do check them before every trip though. 

That shaft is a G&G 21 spline shaft.  Model# 112A2221.  There is no spec on material type.  I may have to contact G&G to get that info so see if I can even heat treat it.

Mine is g&g 21 fully splined. Or it was before I sold the that spool. I bought from Jody at protodie he had it heat treated. Seems like about $50?  It looked new when I pulled out of car.  Car was 1125 but was back when was a 3 seater. I shaved some weight when I carved it but prob still close after turbo stuff. Rpm box about same weight as spool.
You can keep your CHANGE, I'd like to keep my DOLLAR.

 i see on  g&g's site that the splined shafting is offered in   1045, 1144 and 4140. if protodie were smart , then they ordered all 4140. i bet there ordering it in 1045 as thats rated for high tq on ag equipment. the part people fail to understand when looking at ag tq #'s is thats all lower rpm.  to put this in perspective for those that have never driven a tractor......1500 rpm on a pto is pretty high rpm on the crank of an older diesel tractor.

so larry short of short sand cars used to have a custom shaft made that was a  1.25" od, 10 splined but missing 1 spline. this was because he used a 4 link rear end with u joints and he used the u joints off the late 60's 2wd chevy's with 2 pice drive shafts. they had a dead spline to line them up. when i started building way back i bought the shafts from larry's supplier, zimmerman machine in utah. the shafts were 4130 hardened and no one ever broke those. now the custom stub axles he used that were quadzilla size shafts to run quadzilla hubs, were through hardened and he ran 12" dia wheels. those shaft were 1045 like most production car axles , then hardened. his stubs were 50/50 if they lasted lol

Back at it! 
Not much for visual, but all the little stuff like delrin bushings, pivot tubes for the rear suspension, weld bushings and parts.

I did cut the B-pillar off to extend the mid rail to the new center section.  Turned out great!  I only had to pull out the ratchet strap once to pull the original chassis back to my center line. 

I will be buying this radiator.  It will fit perfectly between the new roll cage.  I think I will run an nice big 16" fan that pulls 2300 CFM.

I mocked up the roll bar hoop with a piece of PVC I had laying around and I like it!  I will make a complete hoop that ties back into the mid rail up front.
The diagonal that (yellow tape) goes up and back to the new center section will be removable to get the ole big-block into the chassis.

The seat is also back 3" and up 2.5" which improves the feel of the seating.  This will also give more room for my under seat/speaker box slash fuel cell.

Whenever I see projects like these my brain jumps straight to the question..
Wouldn't it be better to build a whole new buggy so the SideXSide Comparison of the changes can be done in real time in the Sand..

Put this one back together and build another FOR SCIENCE!!

FOR SCIENCE!!!
