Light Weight. Lighter and stronger than the stock 2-piece driveshaft, The Driveshaft Shop's One Piece Aluminum Mustang Driveshaft greatly reduces rotating mass to improve your Pony's 1/4 mile track times.
Superior Quality. Constructed from 4" diameter 6061-T6 aluminum tubing that is rated for 3450ft lbs of torque, this driveshaft features a solid 1350 front Spicer u-joint with flange and adapter plate to mount directly to the transmission and a 108mm 6-bolt rear CV joint made from an all new 300M material.
High Speed Balanced. Balanced on one of the most sophisticated balancing machines in the industry, at up to 9500RPM (revolutions per minute) this one piece driveshaft is rated for use up to 900 horsepower.
So the 2015 Mustang now has an independent rear suspension (IRS) and the driveshaft is a little different than the S197 cars. Although the factory one is still a 2 piece shaft, they are different in configuration. Automatic uses a 4-bolt flange on the back of the trans (DSS will be using the new Forged Aluminum 1350 flange for this) but the Manual's (all of them) have a Guibo. What is a Guibo? its a rubber doughnut coupler like ones used in most European cars. They're put on to make the drivetrain smoother and more soft. But lets face it, soft in a performance car is well, kinda soft.
What we have done is make a billet plate to eliminate the Guibo, then changed that end to a nice 1350 solid Spicer u-joint. The end is pulse welded to the tube on the aluminum shaft and then a 6-bolt CV just like the factory one. Why does DSS use the CV and not a slider like from a 4x4? The reason is that DSS high-speed balances their driveshafts and found out years ago that the CV is more stable and less likely to have Harmonic issues. Also the CV will have a much higher critical speed then a male/female slider.
We here at DSS have become a leading force in using CV's on Driveshafts in the aftermarket and have come a long way with how they are made and used. What's great about this car being IRS is that there are no issues with angles, adjustable arms or ride height issues that can affect the drivetrain.
