Aww man! I hate to be the bearer of bad news, speedster, but they forgot the throttle body
That is SO freakin cool! I know it's hidden, I just wonder if anyone even thought about it LOL

I'm with you on that one J. The only difference is we are going chromoly on the driveshaft. They have shattered a few CF's with the Twin Turbo motors.

7" ? Then it would be sure to clear the intake...

I guess I better check on the carbon shafts as I thought this was the best way to go as Chris never mentioned anything different to me.

Leak, leak ? The only leak here is pulling off the side of the highway to take a leak...

It does not seem to be a problem when they are new. They seem to have a shorter fatigue life under stress. They can handle WAY more power, but it seems that longer term high stress and harmonics weaken them. I know that in the turbine boats we use chromoly too. This is just the 'ol <.02
I trust Chris completely for steering you in the right directions.

Tom said he hasnt ever used the big 3.75" Carbon Fiber shaft that PST makes. I still say it will work just fine and is the best option on the market. He never said who's shafts they had problems with but the other ones on the market are a smaller 3.5" diameter.

I'm not a fan of a chromoly shaft that long spinning that many rpms, they dont have near the rpms limit a CF shaft does.
Both chromoly and aluminum develop a permanant twist after awhile, CF shafts do not.

Thanks
Chris

Don't pee off the highway here in CA, Bruce... The hippies don't want you leaking on Elderberry Beatles or something, lol.

So - unless you're going to make a habit of replacing CF-composite components, they are less than desirable in the long-term, cost-wise? I believe chromoly is similar in that way, too, but at a much longer interval, no? Please set me straight

See Chris' explanation above. I do not claim to be a metallurgist. I do know CF for its strength to weight ratios for boat hulls but have not delved into driveshafts. Two totally different uses. I am sure there are volumes on this topic. I trust the experts on this one.

It's fun to consider that without the epoxies necessary...carbon fiber is nothing more than strong dust....rub raw CF too much and it'll fray like polyester or some other synthesized fabrics.
