"New to t-bucket game but am having fun with all the challenges" If you enjoy scrounging and making it work that axle is a good deal. There have been many good looking buckets built using what ever parts could be found. That is a different type of build than buying an engineered Bucket. There is no right or wrong way to build a t-bucket. The main issue for me is that it is an enjoyable experience. There are great people in this hobby and I would encourage you to start creating relationships as well as creating a T bucket. But PLEASE be careful to build something safe
Shaky I just looked at some of your past posts, Your asking the right kind of questions and if I was you I would buy that axle cuz even if you don't use it you should be able to get your money back and then some. P.S. I think I put up a drawing of our frame some where in the gallery.

Shaky: I believe that Speedway may have the brake kit that you may need.
