*Pics* Eye Candy.. First DSS V6 Trans to V8 Rearend 3.5" Aluminum Shaft

Thank you once again to BaylorCamaro for coming down while I was in Houston so we could properly measure out a driveshaft for his vehicle. This Driveshaft Shop 3.5" Aluminum Driveshaft is for V6 transmission (Manual OR Auto Flanges are available) to the V8 rearend, proper lengths and all. No more using the stock driveshaft to fool the measurements with the slip couplers!

Now it is on it's way to BaylorCamaro!

Haha YG the list never stops.

Yes this was a great combination of some good minds put together and an excellent fabricator.

SIX: Just like you said, day by day these cars are still gaining great parts. I know you are testing out some clutches over there, and a few months ago there was no options.

Here is just another one to add to the V6 mod lists.

Baylor has one impressive shaft. Think this will work with a 1LE differential?

If you have a V8 rearend in there, you have taken the front half of the propeller shaft from your V6 and then taken the back half of the prop shaft from a V8.. The reason why it works as far as distance is because there is a slip joint in the middle of the prop shaft. If you want the proper length shaft, along with the reliability this is the way to go. The other way does work...

This would work with M6 V6's and V6's with any variant of the V8's rearend . Correct me if I'm wrong Matt.

All of that, plus I am not a fan of 2 piece shafts. There is more inefficienc, and I save a little bit of weight with this.

Yes you just need to tell me if it is a manual or automatic V6 transmission and let us know if you have the 1LE or Std V8 rearend (Doesnt matter 3.27 or 3.45) vs. the ZL1 .. The only variance would be if you put the ZL1 rear in the back, then the measurement would change. However, these measurements would work fine for any V8 rearend (Minus the ZL1)

I would guess that may be a bit of a stretch, but it should help lessen the drivetrain loss a bit

Yeah I don't know about that much of a difference. Doc has a very extensive build thread for his SS. The shaft for his car lost a few pounds and he gained 5-10 hp/tq to the rear wheels. He said he noticed it was more responsive.

Matt,

Could you PM me pricing as well? I'm looking for the best ways to plant the power to the launch. So tired of my wheels just spinning and hopping.

Thanks!

Well just an update.

Went to have the DS installed Saturday, unfortunately it was too short. So back to waiting.

We are waiting to hear from the guys now concerning the DS.. I did the measuring myself with Baylor and double checked it.. Just making sure something was not lost in translation. Stay tuned.
