Maximum rated HP and maximum RPM? I come from Germany and we have no speed limit on several highways. Therefore I would like to know the maximum HP which can be applied to that Al driveshaft and the maximum RPM for that driveshaft. Can the driveshaft itself handle 5500 RPM (driveshaft rotating speed)? It's something around 160 mph.

  • Oliver, when I contacted the suppplier regarding the same question, they said, "The shaft can handle up to a 1000HP" With regard to the RPM, they said they can guarantee up to redline operation of engine (6800-6850RPM) at top gear. For the rotational speed of the shaft, I am guessing it should be safe until 8500RPM. You have detailed articles in the internet, about the RPM limits of the shaft by itself, classified as per material, Dia, thickness and pinion angle. I would suggest you research that...

What speed is this shaft rated for? I have heard that the stock shaft on the v6 fails at around 130. The reason I would buy this is to increase my top speed & acceleration. So what top speed do you think I could achieve without failure.

  • Stock fails at 122 why cars limited to 118. I have this drive shaft an its smoother an have had my car up to 160mph many times without worry. But you will need better tires. Its a great buy. I run 18 Weds Sport TC005 255/45 General G-max tires. Amazing dry/wet traction.

Clearance Issues? My 2011 v6 has a 2.5" catback exhaust and I was also planning going with the eibach pro system plus to lower the car (1" in the front and 1.5" in the rear). Seeing that the stock driveshaft is 3.5" and this one is 4", will there be any clearance issues?

  • I have the Eibach Pro springs and a 2.5-inch cat-back, and this drive shaft clears everything just fine. Of course, I'm not off-roading either.

    The imortant things are what it doesn't do...

    For all it's terrific attributes (especially at the price), the current V6 Mustang is not without its engineering compromises. There were two that were of greatest concern to me, and this driveshaft addresses both. The first is vibration. For some reason the V6 MT Mustang can get a funky driveline vibration while decelerating in any gear at about 2500rpm, and I noticed it in mine from the day I got the car. A quick perusal of the forums indicated that this is a relatively common quirk that doesn't seem to have an easy fix. Since aluminum is much better at dampening vibrations than steel, I was hoping that the new shaft would help settle it down. And indeed it did. It didn't eliminate it entirely, but it is far less intrusive - and unless I have my hand on the shifter I don't feel it at all now. The difference is very noticeable. The second is, of course, the reputed weakness of the stock driveshaft at high rotational speeds. Rumor has it that this is the main reason for the factory speed limiter, and whether or not it's true many of us have heard stories (and seen the video) of shaft failure at 130mph and up. I don't know if this is really a design issue or merely a story that took on a life of its own after one failure. But I DO know that the worst place to put the slip-joint in an unsupported shaft is in the middle (where it is on the factory one). And this aluminum shaft puts it on the end (the rear in this case) where it should be. So I have no trouble believing that this shaft is the better design. I, for one, don't believe all these stories about the shaft being worth so-much hp, or that it makes a noticeable improvement in acceleration. The relatively small weight savings and small diameter of the shaft means that we're just not dealing with that much rotational inertia. But that's beside the point. The shaft gave me a smoother driveline and some peace of mind if I ever change that speed limiter. That's what I bought it for, and that's exactly what I got out of it.

    This Shaft is great! Really straight forward to install and makes the car feel so much more refined. The quality is top notch and give you a good piece of mind about not blowing up. The drive train is much smoother, the car revs up faster and at highway speeds it takes less throttle input to keep the car moving (better mpgs) Buy this diveshaft!

    Great product - DIY WARNING

    I had no clue how much rolling resistance was created by the (poorly engineered in my opinion) stock drive shaft. After having the new drive shaft installed I noticed right away when backing out of my garage... I had to actually hit the brake to keep from rolling out too quickly! When with the stock shaft I had to generally touch the gas just a little to really get rolling out. WARNING: The DIY instructions say to jack up the rear of the car by using the differential. The owners manual says: DO NOT lift the rear of the car using the differential! (it is no longer a one piece cast iron pumpkin/axle tubes... the axle tubes are just steel inserts into the cast iron pumpkin now)

    smooth ride

    fairly easy to install even without a lift. looks great even if you will almost never see it. improves responce and ride quality. bought it mainly for safety. just be carefull if you are a daily driver/racer. installed the bmr tunnel brace with safety loop as well. ended haveing to take off the loop after a couple of weeks because if you hit a big enough bump, the shaft will hit the top of the loop.

    GREAT PRODUCT

    I installed this driveshaft only a couple months after i had my car. after hearing about the problems, i wasn't going to take any chances lol. That being said, gives the driver a great piece of mind. The driveshaft is only about 10lbs lighter than the stock one but still makes a difference. The installation was simple, just tough to get the factory bolts off. undo all 8 bolts(4 a side) and pop on the new one, simple as that. The car is also able to drive and coast at a higher gear with lower rpms so its great for mpg. throttle response was a little peppier and overall better quality driving.

    Less weight = smoother response. The car accelerates much smoother and faster now. You can even keep it in top gear at much lower rpm than before to get better fuel economy. Seems to even shift better. Great product, great for peace of mind.

    Like a Different Car

    I just replaced my stock driveshaft with this one as well as adding 3.73 gears and rebuilding the differential. All I can say is wow! The car is quieter, smoother, more responsive and actually up in town my gas mileage improved .3 mpg even with the aggressive gear change from the stock 2.73. I have not updated my tune yet so my comparison is on the same car before and after. I will change the tune tomorrow all the changes we have made but this is a must have upgrade and also makes your ride safer and now you can get the 113 mph governor removed as well.

    One piece driveshat (Aluminum)

    Installed by my Ford Dealer in under an hour. I could've done it myself, but I have reward points at this dealer and I ended up opaying just $36 for the install. Right away I can feel a difference. The driveshaft is quieter and smoother, and the less weight is always a plus. Yes, I'd recommend this as one of the first mods new Mustyang owners should do.

    the PERFECT driveshaft

    i installed the new drive-shaft that comes for the manual and the automatic, it fit perfect and held up over 140 mph with my 3.73 gears. Before the install my auto would bang through 1st to 2nd gear, this drive-shaft also fixed that somehow. The install took me 30 minutes by myself with only jack stands and ramps.

    Aluminum Driveshaft

    I bought the driveshaft because like everyone else, I watched the videos on Youtube and didn't want to blow up. Also, a significantly lighter driveshaft made of aluminum is sure to perform better than the stock one. Once I got the driveshaft in the mail ( one day as always) I took it to a buddies house where we put my 2012 v6 on a lift and got started. The whole installation process took about an hour, however I was lucky to have the use of a lift. I could see the installation taking longer without one. After removing the old driveshaft, which wasn't a huge deal, we put some loctite on the bolts and put the new driveshaft on. Installation wasn't too complicated, only involving applying and releasing the emergency break so you can turn the driveshaft. Immediately you will notice some differences in the way the car drives. When you're cruising around town it feels more balanced and slightly more refined, to quote the guy from the other review. When you get on it, especially after shifts, you will notice more torque and slightly better acceleration. Overall a very good product and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a better ride and doesn't want to blow up in the triple digits!
