Top speed increase? If the limiter is removed from my 99 v6, will this driveshaft allow my mustang to go faster safely? Will it be able to stand up to the higher speeds and not fall apart like the 2011 stock driveshaft? Thanks.


  • Going faster and doing so safely are not necessarily conducive to each other, but the aluminum driveshaft helps to reduce harmonics and vibrations which should in theory allow you to go faster in a safer manner. I have an aluminum Ford Racing driveshaft myself behind a 400+ HP engine and it has held up just fine so far. I think you will be pleased with purchasing one for your car.

    Well worth it

    I am stationed in Germany and drive a 99 V6 with 60K miles on it as my DD. Since the driving speed limits are quite a bit higher here a smooth ride is very important. Before the driveshat swap I noticed a lot of vibration through various gears and the car was always a bit sluggish. Now that I put the Ford Racing Driveshaft on I've noticed a lighter and quicker launch, my car takes hills a lot better (coupled with a LOK limited slip rear differential, also by FR) and there is a significantly lower amount of vibration through the gears and RPM ranges, especially in 2nd and 5th gear. Prior to the swap, I would get a lot of vibration and whine through my Steeda Tri Ax shifter and now it is all gone, even at 120 MPH. My car handles on the autobahn better and I would recommend this part to any V6 enthusiast. I also own a 2010 GT and find good upgrade parts hard to find for the V6 community as compared to the V6's older brother, the GT. So as always, thanks AM for remembering us '6 bangers' too.

    Perfect fit for my V6

    I have a '99 3.8L with a T5 manual trans. I also swapped in an 8.8 rear out of a GT. This was the perfect fit for my car. Lighter and much nicer than the stock one. Helped out getting rid of some vibration when cruising at highway speeds in 5th gear.

    Makes a Difference

    My old driveshaft had badly worn U-Joints, so I decided to buy the FRP Aluminum Driveshaft. There is a lot less vibration from the drivetrain at highway speeds now. It's noticeably smoother and a bit quicker to accelerate as well.

    Light Weight Power

    I'm running a 3.8 Automatic. After installing new 3.73 gears and an LSD, my stock rusted driveshaft acquired a bit of a vibration around 80mph and higher. Decided to drop some money into this Aluminum Ford Racing Driveshaft, and am definitely happy with the outcome. The car drives much smoother from start to finish - Even at 110mph! Seems to accelerate a bit quicker too. Take a moment to hold the stock driveshaft in comparison to the aluminum... the difference is incredible. To be honest, this part is a little pricey, but I think it's worth it, since it looks and feels high quality. Installation is very quick and easy. 4 Bolts to the rear end, drop and pull out the old driveshaft, slide in the new one, and reinstall the bolts. Cake ;)

    Aluminum Driveshaft

    This is a must upgrade for people looking to get real rear wheel horse, Lighter weight drive train means a better performance and gear play through the transmission from the difference in weight ratio, when you take a moment to hold the stock shaft as apposed to the aluminum shaft, the weight difference is incredible.

    Smooth as glass.

    I have a 2001 v6 convertible so mine is the application requiring the use of the factory yoke. It was a little disappointing since the factory yoke is big and heavy with a large damper on it. Other than that, it is great. I never thought I had any vibration until it was gone. Now it drives smooth as glass. I have 4:10 gears and now it is hard to keep her under 70 on the highway. My pony just wants to run. I live in the Texas Hill country and the lighter weight helps on the hills. It is a little pricey, but nothing is too good for my baby.
