    Good eye.... I think there is a 4wd version of my small front end. 100ish wheel base. The width is 80ish wide which is ok for trailers. It would be a whoop machine! Rear engine really is the best for lots of tight turning brake maneuvers.

    You will have to o-ring the outside of the bearings and one on the shaft too. More of a hassle than it's worth and it will probably still leak.

    Good call on o-ringing the shafts, I think we could press-fit for a decent seal.
    Bearings would be a press-fit into the aluminum, good enough for a seal.

    They will seal until it gets hot and you put power to it. Trust Me, they will leak.

    You can get bearings with an o-ring around them. For the shaft, internal washer with a large chamfer to capture a o-ring, just needs to be under constant pressure.

    You don't want to press fit both the ID and OD of the bearing. Hard to disassemble, potential to overstress the bearing causing it to wear out quicker. I would use a shaft seal, pressed in from the outside of the case, then you don't have to worry about it.

    How is that easier than just using a shaft seal? Or just lower profile?

    Curious, where do you plan on getting the splined shaft to match the QC gears?
