What length axles do you need for a 60" centered 9" ?

I measured, 33 and 28.5" this sound close?

Thanks for any help, Krom.

The way i measured it, i got an axle thats 37" long and i use it to measure for others.

Anyway i stuck the axle in the housing with the pig in there, and shoved it all the way in. Then i measured what was sticking out and subtracted that off 37.

I ended up with 33 1/2" and 29".

This should be accurate correct? or do i need to account for a little play inbetween the mini spool and the hubs?

The housing i built myself. The car we run is really old, and i've cut on it and redone the entire thing but the under rails. Which are very wide, to wide to be honest. So i had to build this housing to fit the car.

I wanted a 61" centered, but being my first time building a housing i think i got the right side snout set wrong, looks like a 1/2" out. I'll know exactley how to do it next time.
