The front shaft is a carrier upgrade and the main shaft is a completely new shaft from DSS.  We run both on our silver GT-R.

 

A+++

 

Thanks!

Michael

I thought they were making the front shaft out of carbon? What happened? I thought you guys were testing those?  Isn't the main shaft already carbon?

T1R originally received the main driveshaft for testing, but they didn't plan on going out for a while so we did the testing instead.  I believe Gidi has the upgraded FWD driveshaft, but he doesn't plan on going out until February, so it may be a few months before we see this product released.  

 

We should find someone in the community that's local to Salisbury, NC 28147 and have them drop their car off at DSS for development :)

so to be clear, there IS a carbon front driveshaft in the real world?

I have a 1 piece carbon front shaft on my car from DSS.  It was a prototype that didn't fit without a BFH on the body, which I didn't mind being a race car.  Due to the angle from trans to front diff, it can't be 1pc unless it's pretty small diameter.   There's a 2pc in the works in carbon, but I'm not sure where that project is.  I know they aren't ready yet.

Big Fucking Hammer haha
I’m assuming he had to massage the floorpan on the pass side to make more clearance for the 1 piece shaft. Btdt on Jeeps and buggies
