Driveshaft durability?

1938 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?

you should call up Dennys driveshaft and have them make you an Aluminum one with a nice yoke on it. one of the chicks on LS1tech just destroyed her driveshaft at the track on saturday. and just in case, i hope ya have a drive shaft loop.
defintaly get denny, his shafts are second to none. i am using the nitrous ready shaft also, and it shouldnt break!

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.
when i talked to denny, he suggest the aluminum shaft for my car since it was so heavy, and asked why i suggest the nitrous ready. "well i plan on buidling a stroker motor built for forced induction and using nitrous off the line, bashing gears with a 6 speed twin disc clutch, with 4.56 and drag slicks!!"

he then said, ok i think you need the nitrous ready shaft!
