Review & Install Video

Hey, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my review of The Driveshaft Shop's carbon fiber one-piece driveshaft for 2015 and '16 GTs. A carbon fiber one-piece driveshaft is going to be for any S550 owner that's looking to strengthen their driveline and drop some weight while they're at it. The 2015 Mustang still comes from factory with a two-piece driveshaft, which is going to inherently have some weaknesses. A big thing to call out here would be that the DSS driveshaft is going to be much lighter. We know that the stock driveshaft weighs roughly 33 pounds, and I have the scale to measure this carbon fiber version, which looks like it weighs right around 26 pounds. Now keep in mind that we do have the adapter plate on this guy, which is going to add a little bit of weight to this. The weight savings here should mean improvements such as faster revs, better throttle response, and less vibrations or clunking during driving. And looking at these driveshafts, I can tell you that I like the trans end for the manual version because it has a hearty flange with a solid-looking U-joint, and I like that the differential end for both options has a nice CV-joint that's going to be more stable than other options, like a slider. Another thing I like is the carbon fiber. The carbon fiber version is going to be lighter than even the aluminum one-piece driveshaft, and I know it's more expensive, between $1,300 and $1,400, but I think a carbon fiber driveshaft is nicer because of the way the material reacts to hard driving. It gives more of a torsional twist, way more than a stock driveshaft, and even more than the aluminum one-piece driveshaft, but without any kind of reverse snap. And, ultimately, the construction of this driveshaft and the carbon fiber should reduce the shock on other drivetrain components. If we were going to rate the driveshaft options, I'd have it go something like this: your stock one at the bottom, the aluminum one-piece next, followed by the top guy, which is this carbon fiber one. Now, with all of that being said, DSS rates this driveshaft as being capable of handling up to 1,000 horsepower. I would figure on about two hours for the install and about one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You do have to drop your exhaust for the install, and you will need a handful of different socket sizes and hex sockets, and a hammer might be helpful, but you really want to make sure you have a torque wrench for this install so you can torque down your adapter plate and driveshaft insert. Again, the carbon fiber one-piece driveshaft from The Driveshaft Shop does cost a pretty penny, but I think it's a great mod that will both change a stock S550 and is a must-have to support more power down the road. It's at the top of my list for driveshaft options, but, as always, check this thing out online and see what you think for yourself. I'm Stephanie, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Light Weight. Lighter and stronger than the factory 2-piece driveshaft, The Driveshaft Shop's One Piece Carbon Fiber Mustang Driveshaft greatly reduces rotating mass to improve your Pony's 1/4 mile track times.

Superior Quality. Constructed from 3.8" diameter High Modulus Carbon fiber tubing, this driveshaft features a 108mm CV joint and adapter plate to mount directly to the transmission and a 108mm 6-bolt rear CV joint made from an all new 300M material.

Extra Clearance. This light weight one piece carbon fiber driveshaft features a 3.8" diameter design giving extra clearance needed to avoid interference that can happen on lowered Mustangs equipped with a 4" shaft.

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 1000 horsepower.

Application. This one piece carbon fiber driveshaft from The Driveshaft Shop is designed specifically for use on 2015-2018 GT Mustangs equipped with an automatic transmission.

Are there any comparison information for 0-60 times or any other performance measurements before and after adding this driveshaft?

  • Hello, Seeing as though every vehicle is minutely different any statistics you may find may not be entirely accurate. We do not have any specs for this particular set up.

IIRC Carbon fiber does not like 300 F heat and can de-laminate... The 2015's exhaust runs pretty close to the drive shaft. (you actually have to drop the cat back to install a drive shaft) Will this carbon fiber drive shaft be able to withstand the heat in stop and go "rush hour" traffic in a DD?

  • The Driveshaft Shop Carbon Fiber One Piece Driveshaft - Automatic (15-17 GT) should work just fine in stop and go daily driving traffic. The heat should not have an affect on this driveshaft.

    My mustang is a 2015 automatic I have a Roush supercharger in it and 20 inch wheels. I wanted to install this for a while and finally did. WOW the car feels so smooth and when you give it gas and put your foot in it the car reacts more quickly. I love it. no vibration or noise, Just flats out rocks and engine works less hard to get going from a dead stop

    Fit is perfect no issues what so ever. Noticeable gains in acceleration overall better feel. However, their claims of absorbing vibrations and rotational harmonics has been totally false in my application "2015 GT Conv." I did the recommended re-indexing 180deg. DS first order vibration issue remains in my case between 50-60mph. Spoke with DSS they are saying its an issue with the car not the shaft and that there has been other reports of this issue. I re-installed OE driveshaft and have no vibration issues which DSS is saying is simply being absorbed by the two piece shaft. Im not sure what to do or where to go to have this issue resolved.

    Driveshaft review

    The weight difference is very noticeable. Installation is not difficult. The hardest part is removing the original driveshaft. Noticeable smoothness and acceleration improvement, especially after Power Pack 3 installation. No vibration or noise issues.

    Driveshaft works perfectly

    Installed the driveshaft on my 2016 Roush and it is perfect. No vibrations or clunking at all. It was a job to install, but not that difficult.
