I want to strengthen the standard Manta axle to reduce the amount of flexing in the tubes. There are two possibilities. Firstly, I could have a alloy strengthening plate made and installed similar to the one shown here for a Ford Escort Mk II. Secondly, I could replace the axle tubes with thicker walled tubes. This is another modification often done on Mk II Escort rally car axles.
