    I used larger front hubs from an S-10 4X4 set into an Olds Ciera upright.

    Axles were made up of the larger spline S-10 4X4 front hubs, axle cv joints and axle stub mated to a Fiero axle and cv joint on the engine side. These are the wheel adapters I used. Note the longer studs for Ferrari rims.
