I might start using the stock Can Am diffs, I think I broke something in my Arctic Cat rear diff in my turbo car, not sure yet as to whats making noise since I just got home. But if I do try and use the Can Am diffs then the axles will be custom made Can Am inner And Arctic Cat outer spline.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

i am getting ready to start mine have the can am and a rhino but i am going to use my rolling chassis rhino that i picked up and will use the rotax diffs as well

i doubt the rhino diffs are even close to the strength being they are rated at about 25hp

The Can Am diffs are big, I would use them but its a pain to have those axles made with different splines on each side.

i realize its heavier but i just think that the can am diffs will will be more suited to hold the hp of the 800

my plan as of now is to cut the can am axles and try the rhino spindles i am sure that the bearing for the rhino will be smaller i would assume then those of the can am so i will most likely have to order bearings but this is the route i am going to try to go

Are you going to cut and spilce the axles, If so they wont last.
