I used a 1/24 scale cast pewter J-joint I found in my local hobby shop, to replace the original molded 'block' of plastic which was supposed to be the front drive-shaft U-joint.

Since the front drive hardware is much smaller than the rear drive, on the 1:1 vehicle and on the model, this 1/24 scale part worked on this 1/18 scale model.

I had to use a short piece of 1/8 inch diameter aluminum tubing to connect the original plastic drive shaft with the new U-joint, see the second picture of parts used.
