Driveshaft durability?

1937 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  NXSLT1
With a Strange 12 bolt and McLeod Street Twin cluch, can I clutch dump to launch the car or is that going to cause the driveshaft to break?

The ST is impossible to slip....if I keep the dumps to 3000-3500rpm will I avoid driveshaft problems or other things such as twisting the output shaft of the transmission?

I have a loop on the Spohn Tq arm I'm putting in. I'll stay with a steel driveshaft. Alum is too brittle for serious drag racing IMO.
I can have a steel driveshaft made locally with upgraded yoke and U joints for $200 that's strong enough the T56 output shaft will twist before the DS breaks. Not worth 2-3 times that for an exotic alum or CF one IMO.
