What did they quote you for one Josh? Last I heard DSS owns the selling rights now and they want like 1500$ for them. That's ridiculous!

I had not contacted anyone yet. I am making a mental shopping list and once the budget is done ordering stuff.

Ok well I'd be interested in one too so maybe we can get a few others together and see how low they'll drop the price.

Come the spring I would be in for one. Will it fit an '88 with a st205 transmission and rear differential?

I am kicking around getting this, but if I do not I am looking into a is300 aluminum driveshaft. I know they fit the flanges, but its a matter of length.


Where did the idea of the IS shaft come from? Did someone try it or is it because of the flange compatibility?

I sent DSS an email BTW. They're closed until Monday so I'll let you know what they say. I also asked about pricing on a group buy of 10 or so. We'll see....

A friend at work had a single piece made for his IS. I'll ask if he has the measurements to compare.

I'm pretty sure the wheel base on a mini is a lot shorter than our cars.

I emailed ACPT again and ryan clampit replied saying i need to contact their driveline partner powertrainindustries.com and speak to Bryan Hart.... However, when i went to the website and searched through their make/model database it shows our driveshaft in the 3 piece OEM configuration.... which makes me a little worried that we may not be getting the same driveshaft that acpt previously produced..... I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

From what I have gathered through different posts and also contacting others, the tubes are still produced by ACPT. What they're not doing is assembling the yokes and selling them. This was given to DSS. DSS told another member that they decided to "re-engineer" the flanges and how they're attached to the carbon tubes. In doing so they decided to raise the price to around 1500$ instead of the 975$ originally quoted. I've already sent them an email and expect a reply tomorrow. We'll see I guess.

Yeah, the second reply I got from ACPT when I asked if we would be receiving the same driveshaft they previously produced for the group buy was that PTI would produce the same shaft using ACPT's composite tubing and ACPT is not a driveline shop and to contact powertrain industries... it was a little curt. I'm still waiting for a reply from PTI

Here is a link the the mini build I think ep4 has details on the driveshaft. I doubt I would spend 1500 myself, and might look at other options.

EDIT: I have not researchd the company, but they produce their aluminum driveshafts per dimensions required by each order. So that could get us an aluminum version as a last resort.

What's the major difference between aluminum and carbon fibre? Weight and strength?

CF is light and stronger from what I read. I heard that aluminum might be to large a diameter to fit as well. That will need to be researched.
