I'm posting this it both forums but I would think the mods would use them more often. Does anyone have any opinions on these floaters. It's actually www.9inchfloater.com

Going to put in a floater this year and for $800, these sound good. Unless they aren't any good.

I do know that at one time their hubs spindles and rotors were their own design and combo of pieces and their stuff wouldnt interchange with anything else. At least with an Afco, Winters using the gran national hubs/spindles you can interhcnage stuff and most parts places are gonna have parts for them. With the one on that website you would want to get spare bearings and rotors unless he is willing to tell what they are.

Anyone know where you can get new axle tubes? Xtra long and fit yourself kind.

I need to correct the offset in our existing housing, thought i would just do it myself.

kromulus, go to www.shorttrack.com/coleman thats coleman racing or go to www.lefthanderchassis.com lefthander
they both have the snouts and the tubes with snouts on them for about 80.00 ea.

i am doing the same thing to a spare that i have and cutting from 60" to 1" shorter on rr for more bite options and a 59" rear with a slight offset

I have one that I bought in 2000. It uses wide five bearings and seals and locknuts. No complaints.

I bought one from Ron Schreiner in 2001, and it worked out great.

I just ordered my second one from him sunday. The number on the website is his home phone, if you want customer service I dont think youll beat Ron, since he answers his home phone all the time..

The rotors he sells with the kit are 10.5 inch diameter, and weigh 10 lbs. I upgraded to a 8lb same small diameter rotor.

Thanks to Outlaw, I've found that Speedway has the Winters style on sale. Being fairly new to the floater rear ends, what's the dis-advantages to the Winter's style as compared to the Grand National? Or are they the same and I'm just missing something?

All gran national rears use the same bearings and most differences between different brands of gran national rearends is the style and make of the hub, which if they all use the same bearing you could have 2 different brands of gran national hubs on your housing.
