MT UNITS ARE CURRENTLY BACK-ORDERED UNTIL JANUARY 2021

OVERVIEW

Reduce driveline slack and rotational weight by over half with our lightweight Carbon Fiber Driveshaft.  The driveshaft is a direct replacement for the OEM 2 piece driveshaft and dramatically reduces weight.

Each unit is frequency balanced and is tested to 5000nm (3600+ft.lbs) of torque.

The tube itself is constructed of multiple layers of carbon fiber, with a strict 76% carbon to 24% epoxy ratio, which leads to a stronger and lighter unit.

The ends are made from 7075-T6 aluminum with high-quality u-joints.  Frequency balancing ensures the driveshaft does not vibrate while in use.
