Come on now. 8 + 8 + 9(width of 3rd member)=25" or do you just run one axle?

What about welding in a Baffel like a valve cover? Just a small deflector?

Here is a pic of mine, the vent is on the boss right under where my parachute mounts to the crossbar. I like the idea of a baffle, I will have to see what kind of room I have with the center section out.

when you have two 8" axles you do not add the third member for a distance for total rear end housing. Generally the axles only have 1/2" between the two axles when slid in the spool or what ever you got. So from what he origonally said his rearend would have been about 16.5 inches...lol... Now that he has a pic, we can see he meant about 8" tubes not axles.

Rusaved is the one who said he has 8" axles.

I was just putting a pic of mine for reference...

Here is what I did to fix the problem. I didnt have the room for a baffle in my housing. I put a catch can with some fittings and a little braided line. I have about $75 in the setup, but it should work and looks cool...lol...
