    According to the McDonald's bros site, shortening costs are:
    Housing - $300
    Axles - $175 (each)
    Bolt pattern change $250
    I don't know if I would be happy with shortened standard axles unless they were heat treated properly.
    They also do some floater kits for $195 http://www.mcdonaldbrosracing.com.au/leaffloaters.html but I don't think they would be IPRA legal

    That's a long wait for the cage! I gues it gives you time to sort out other bits

        Hoonboy, I don't like the look of the McDonald floaters, there are some better designs out there.

        Cage is $2200, he does a fixed price it doesn't matter what car you have. There are others out there that could have got it done before christmas but they give ballpark figures and charge by the hour.

            $2200 is a great price if it's a decent cage. Mine was done by Pete Cleary at ProRacing at mates rates and still cost me 3k...

              2200 is a full weldin 6 point cage with bracing to the a and b pillars, side intrusion bars and extra diagonal brace through across the roof and in the drivers main hoop as well as a harness bar. I will RMF see how busy they are and how much, I would really like it done before christmas.

                  $2200 fixed is alot better than i expexted, and the walker cages ive seen seem to be pretty good. You reckon they would be able to cut a dashboard out where the a-pillar bars go?

                  very pleased to see $2200

                  cheers,

                    I am sending it to them without the dash in so they can run the front legs along the a-pillars, I will trim it to get it back in.

                      thats the best way to do it none of this gay arsed dogleg shit in the front bars that will weaken it.

                        without extra gussets/bars i dont think its even legal to have a dogleg in the a pilar bar.

                        Do they paint the cage? I can imagine an extremely fustrating paint session trying to mask the car and trying not to miss any of the barwork if i were to do it myself

                          por15 self levelling brush on paint for the win! Just don't do it by dodgy light like I did, you will miss spots that are bloody obvious in sunlight

                              I haven't done anymore. I am going to go some wider flares at the rear take up the maximum allowed, will try some torana flares. I am also considering trying a more positive offset wheel, FWD style to avoid cutting the diff down, but it won't look right without any dish.

                              I am also checking out a diff from a 1981 mazda 929 wagon. It the wrong style PCD for the wheel studs but it is free, we have no idea what axles they ran if it is decent I will cut it to suit the lancer and sell off the RX7 diff.

                                Sounds like a weird option! What about a hilux diff with stud pattern change? Adds about 3cm per side compared to the stock diff.
