    The wheel hub uses a K6ZXR front rotor, a CBR1000RR caliper, a custom upright, brake hat and caliper mount plate.

    I found a CV axle with 28 spine inner and 27 spline outer from a Chevy Colorado, it's a bit short, but I might be able to cut the center axle and weld a bigger tube over it.

    Weight is the key to your build. Why start behind the eight ball by adding weight and failure points to your drive shafts? If it's for budget reasons and you already have them I get it but otherwise find a set that will fit.

    Yeah, that won't be ideal. I bought one cv axle to see if the splines even fits in my diff and hubs. I just looked through one of the micro-stub-cv-axle threads. Learned alot. I would hope I can measure for a custom mid-axle once I have the drive fitted.

    Anything I'm doing horrible wrong?

    The CV axle I got seems promising, it fits my 28 spline torsen diff and the 27 spline chevy hubs. But I need to make it about 8" longer. (If I had a nickle for every time I've heard that...)

    First I can't seem to get the outer joint apart to fit a longer axle (or cut/weld a tube to make it longer). I would guess there is a c-ring-clip holding the axle in (like how axles push into diffs). I've watched a youtube video of a guy pounding on the center ball carrier (splined part) while the axle is in a vise and it popped out. I couldn't get it apart and I pounded pretty hard (aluminum bar on the center ball carrier). There is slight axial movement on the splined part, so I don't think it's press fit.

    Second, presuming I can get it out, where can I find a longer (premade) axle? Or get the correct length to start with, but I couldn't find anything (whole cv axles) even close.

    The 27 spline number, is that the count of the wheel bearing hub?
    The spline count of the axle "should" be same inside and out.

    Not familiar with the torsen diff,

    Yea the Torsen splines should be a chevy 28 spline, and I have Blazer hub assemblies that are 27 spline.

    I think the cv axle I got measured 22-29/32" end to end compressed. So I need something about 32" with those ends.

    Of course I had to start building a wood version frame, just to see how it fits!
