Plus here is a rear rim i did, drilled out a Chevy SS rim, added lug nuts and a moser center cap. Also a picture of the engine going in it. (P.S. i dont do correct firing order i just basically go for looks and in my eyes it looks cleaner this way.)
Thanks guys, I try to be easy on the mud so i dont cover up details. It took about a month to finish. Also yes it is a square drive shaft. In the derby world its called a slipshaft. When the rear of the car gets bent and the axle moves it allows the shaft to compress or streach so you dont lose it.
Heres my best scratch building effort. built from a 76 caprice sedan. the front and rear frame sections are scratch built. all the derby related parts are also scratch built , gas tank, batterey box, toggle box rear axle and the engine armor.
