Pfadt sells one for Corvettes. Check with Jordan and see if they have any plans for a Camaro version.

The benefit of which would be weight reduction? Sorry if it's a dumb question.

weight reduction, reduced rotating mass, peppier feeling when you stomp on the gas, etc.

Our shafts will come with a billet pinion yoke and 1350 series u-joints.
No adapters or couplers will be used.
The Carbon fiber shaft and pinion yoke will come in at about 14-15 LBS.

Were looking at about 3 weeks before they are ready.

Price will be $1299. but I might have an introductory sale to kick them off.

I'll also do an Aluminum version for $899.

Thanks
Chris

In short, all the same benefits as a lightweight flywheel plus the weight reduction and less issues if you do somehow destroy the driveshaft.

I too am very interested in your carbon fibre driveshaft. Your pricing seems very reasonable compared to others! Have you ever broken a carbon fibre driveshaft?

I was also looking at your axles and they are more than half the price of everyone elses??? Would they be good for a everyday driven 700HP Camaro? Will you be making them? At a price of $800 for the axles I'm very interested in a set consisting of one larger axle to help eliminate wheel hop

Maybe you could do a "promotion" and offer the carbon driveshaft and a set of axles at a price break? Count me in.\

Also any idea what the stock driveshaft weighs compared to the carbon fibre one weighing in at 14-15 lbs??
