It looks like there is a mix-up here.

- Ron Champion chassis (book built your own sports car for as little as 250) is based on Escort MK1/2, and uses this donor car's rear live axle.
- The Sierra based chassis is the Haynes Roadster (book Build your own sports car on a budget), and yes, uses standard length Sierra driveshafts (IRS). But is not a Ron Champion chassis.

Hope that will help

True! Not a massive difference, but they do need to be put on the right side.

Sierra Based Ron Chapman Driveshaft Length

Ive built a Ron Chapman based locost using the Sierra diff & standard drive shafts (push-in type), however, my chassis is 4 inches wider than standard to accommodate my lardy ar**. The rear suspension is a GTS DeDion axle with a Sierra diff and standard length Sierra drive shafts plus Sierra rear hubs. The overall width of the axle is about 4 inches wider than a standard Ron Chapman. So, for me, with a 4 inches wider chassis it works fine with standard width wheel arches. If you are using a book chassis, you will need 2 wider wheel arches and possible suspension mounting point mods to suit the type you are using. I went for the DeDion axle rather than a live axle or IRS and the one I bought was for a standard chassis and I had to modify the attachment points, moving them 2 inches further out.
