  2. good luck getting answers. not many of us will ever have the pleasure of attaining 600rwhp. ::p:
     
  3. Do you think there will be a problem running the FMS aluminum DS after 600 RWHP or just a problem with the u-joints?
     
  4. LOL thanks...
    btw...you can if thats what you decided you really want :nice:

  7. Mike I knew about the spicer joints...but the shaft? whew.....they dont give that thing away do they?
     
  8. oh, there is no doubt that i want it. it's just that i'd need to rob a bank or two to afford it. :jester:
     
  9. No kiddin. I cringe at spending $500-$900 on a ds but what choice do we have? Good enough for scrantons car.......good enough for me.

  10. Keep the faith brotha...keep the faith...it'll come....just dont do like I did about 7 times and sell the car after you put alot of money into it...I'm keeping this one :D
     
  11. At what point does it become a problem?
     
  12. ...........by the way, I've broken two u joints and bent a FRPP shaft with only 437 rwhp/ 404 rwtq and 4 passes so I definately don't see any way around spending the $ on this one.
     
  13. A guy on the "other channel" posted that the 1350 series U joints used in that shaft are good to 1000 rwhp...that should do us :D maybe we can do a group purchase.....of 2 :rlaugh:
     
  14. :rlaugh: I'm in! I do think I can make some progress on a discount though. Let me know.
     
  15. Make it so!

  20. yup...nickel gear sets, double key ways, 2nd and 3rd welded to the shaft 2nd and 3rd welded together and had the gears and input and output shafts cryogenically treated. :D
