So they got all the issues figured out then - I know last year they were having problems with this for the ZL1 - glad to see they worked it out

I had one on my gt500 and hated it, very noisy for some reason. How are you liking it on the ZL1 I may have to give it another try.

What are the benefits from this carbon fiber driveshaft? Beside being lighter

Nice !!

And the CF shafts are a lot less than you think actually. We run them on a lot of combinations, including our shop car with the TH400/DSS 9".

lighter = less energy wasted turning it = more power freed up to go to the wheels

Also, it being a solid one-piece drive shaft, you don't lose as much energy as you do with our two-piece drive shaft.

plus, if it breaks you won't destroy everything underneath the car

tpower/DBLCHBY please give more feed back as you test more, I'm interested to know if in fact it's giving a noticeable difference in drivability and on the race course.

Here's a link to my project thread which shows a before and after install with dyno charts that show I gained 8 hp and 9 lbs of torque just by switching to a 1-piece cf driveshaft from DSS:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...t=45165&page=5

The main benefit is improving the efficiency by eliminating the center joint in the factory 2-piece driveshaft. Frank balances his driveshafts up to 9000 rpm so there's no wasted energy; they are dead smooth with no vibration when spinning. This becomes more and more important as you increase horsepower. That plus they are much stronger than the factory unit and can handle a lot more torque and power. It's a good upgrade.
