Help!!! Driveshaft Broke!!! Replacement?

Today I broke my driveshaft getting on the interstate. I guess I'm going to upgrade due to having 700 HP. If anyone can help me with some suggestions on what to do I would love the help.

Contact Frank at DSS; he's a vendor here. They make a 1-piece aluminum or carbon fiber replacement that can easily handle the power.

Are you 100% sure it was the DS and not the output shaft on the trans? I see you have a 2010. Is it an early 2010 M6?

Uh.... um.... ask me Sunday. It's still in the box in my garage.

I'm putting it in Saturday. I can't see any issues and the CF one I installed in a buddy's fit perfect... heat shield and all!

It broke in the rear close to the rearend and I'm glad it did because it fell down on the cross brace so it didn't hit the ground and flip the car. Got to get something to hold the power! If anyone here can give me info on how to contact DSS that would be nice.

I am getting ready to take my camaro to the same power level as you but before I do that I am going to get the DSS one piece driveshaft for added insurance. May also look at getting safety loops to contain the driveshaft JUST IN CASE something does go wrong even after the upgrade.
