Top fuel dragsters and funny cars also use gun drilled axles. That being said, the mere 602 hp my engine makes doesn't need 40 spline axles to start with, so gun drilled axles are complete overkill

Hey, Jason, man.......  What's the advantage to gun drilled axles? Is it to save weight?


As far as I know, gun drilled or rifle drilled axles are only really benificial to a drag car, it cuts a bit of rotating weight compared to a standard solid axle. They really aren't necessary and most of the time on a drag car you want to leave some weight over the back axle to get the car hooked up

Well that will depend what I can afford, I'm turning 16 in December so by then I'll need it running or to have something else to drive to school, it's worth a lot of money, an original 1971 vega panel delivery with no rust or major body damage with less than 78,000 original miles is almost impossible to find, I've had interest in it at $4000 as a roller so with that I could find a cheap hooptie to drive for a few years. The other option is buying a stock 327 or 350 to put in it and drive that for high school. It really all boils down to what I can afford, no matter how hard and much I work, I can't have a full time job this summer so that really holds me back
