Winters axle build

I have been collecting an Axle " one piece at a time" From E Bay. Now I realise it will not be easy to assemble without some help, So my Question is can any one recommend a site that is Winters specific , or even a site that covers sprint car axles in general, I already have lots of very interesting reading done on the internet, but still not finding the full picture.
PS I have been on the Winters Site +looked on the search function here too.

Hi thanks for your input, as it happens im a Speedway customer,and the components ive bought are for a "Hybrid" Sprintcar type axle im building, I do have the ability and the tools to set up an axle and many many successful axle build s done over the years.But absolutely no previous Winters experience, I have found one interesting Sand Racing site ,where a racer has made a similar axle to my plans, even E mailed him without any luck .
I use the word "Hybrid" as im intending to use some European components IE. an Audi geared differential , that part of the project is just lathe work. What I will end up with is a very slim , and independent type axle,and cheap shafts( Audi again ), very strong and locally available,So its just the Winters part thats slowing me at present.
I will try and post a few photos of all the parts, later.

Ok, your kind reply is not really a question, but its information on QCs ,and informing me that an independent QC is available, With that information I Googled the subject( Independent Winters QC.) and that helped my research and I have some more links to read later ,Thanks.
What im hoping to find is any articles or sites that are dedicated to the subject, As an example if I was building a SBC 383 and googled up on that I would be swamped with endless information and specifications.

Hi , your pretty quick with your response. I see you are in CA. I have a brother there , he went out there for 6 months, about 20 years back . Loves the lifestyle, unfortunately he does not share my interest in things mechanical.Anywayback to the subject of the thread. The first specific question I need an answer for is How many different ratios will fit into a sprint QC ,I notice only 2 ratios on most retail sites ,Speedway ETC. but I have ratio(CWP) 4.5;1 Thats not listed , maybe its for a Midget Winters QC. THIS IS THE TYPE OF INFORMATION IM SEEKING. Phoning is not an option as its too expensive also im short of hearing.I have sent E Mails to many retailers Winters included , But no replys, Might be my location.

Kaedings is a local sprint car shop in Campbell close to San Jose. They should be able to supply you with everything. Make sure you get a gear chart for the 4.57 so you know what final drive gears to get.
