    So I waited for the DS to show up before I installed the shifter... Now just waiting on the tires and some warmer weather! Yes I did have to do some cutting on the shifter boot, and the stock knob is too tall. I may look a little closer at it.

    If you want a once piece drive shaft, go DSS.. they are amazing!

    Nice, these two upgrades on on my list. Maybe not the CF variation, but most definitely the one-piece DS

    Nice. What are the weights for the stock and CF driveshafts?

    That's one hellava nice shifter and shaft.

    Anybody seeing any vibration issues with the one piece shaft? Bunch of people installed them but haven't seen any feedback/comments one way or the other.

    What's up with the flanges on both ends of the CF shaft. Looks like they are using half of the attachment bolts vs. the stock shaft. I'm assuming both ends are splined but..........

    Dave,

    How long is the DSS shaft end to end?

    Nobody? For the guys who installed these? This didn't make you go hmmm? Or are you just taking pictures of them and having someone else install them?

    Nice D,
    I thought I would drop a short bit on the CF vs AL in here because there are differences not just in cost, we have been using CF shafts in all the race cars for a few years now and there is a big difference...... TC

    Advantages of Carbon Fiber
    * Lighter than steel or aluminum.
    * Three times torsional strength of steel.
    * Torsional spring rate allows better tire hook-up.
    * Torsional spring rate allows smoother shifting.
    * Less shock load to the differential.
    * Eliminates or dampens high speed vibrations.
    * Reduces transmission and differential breakage.
    * Characteristics can be varied by changing the wind, angles or diameter. PST offers both steel & 7075 Billet Aluminum yokes.
    * In drag racing applications - a better 60 Ft. time.
    * ET's have been lowered in some cases by as much as .120.
    * In road racing smoother shifting and better durability of transmission and differential have been reported.
    * A much greater safety factor - carbon fiber will return to a fiber and not create shrapnel under the car, as would aluminum or steel shaft also.

    A short list, I'm sure there are more

    The Aluminum Shaft is exactly the same size as a stock shaft. They bolt on using the same number of bolts. You use the stock bolts as well. I've had mine in for around 1700 miles and have made 14 1/4 mile passes. ZERO vibration and the car drives as good as with the stock shaft.

    If you changed from the OEM to shaft to one of these, can you even tell at all that there's a difference in feeling, or would you not even know?
