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.

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.
that makes sense.. Thank you

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:

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.
