Many people love carbon fiber driveshafts. You can follow us on social media to keep up with the latest happenings at the shop. We are happy to announce that the Carbon Fiber Driveshaft will be reintroduced on the FRS/BRZ/GT86 platform.
Carbon Fiber driveways are strong enough to withstand high torque loads while weighing in at a minimum. Each driveshaft is baked in an oven mold to maintain pressure bonding and temperatures.

The ratio of epoxy to carbon in the driveshafts is between 76% and 24%. This ratio of carbon to epoxy allows for a 55% reduction in weight compared to an OEM unit.
Our carbon fiber is made of a raw carbon fiber material that is used by many automobile manufacturers, racing teams, and the military.
Nissan uses the same material to make its GT-R OEM driveshafts. It is also used in missile bodies and high-pressure fuel tanks.
The 7075-T6 aluminum ends are made with high-quality, low-stiction u-joints. These ends are heat- or cold-forged and can have an antioxidation treatment.
The torque measured for the driveshafts was 3600+ ft.lbs, or 5000nm. For 100,000 cycles, the driveshaft was fatigue tested at 2000nm/cycle. The driveshafts are balanced at between 8,000 and 10,000 RPM to ensure that there is no vibration.
