When I was looking into it, driveshaft shop told me due to the length the shaft had to be a minimum of 3.5 inches for a diameter.

9 days later, multiple emails, voicemails and ACPT forwarding my emails directly and still no reply or contact in return.... I've never tried so hard to get someone to take $1000+ bucks from me..... this is becoming frustrating! :x

PTI quoted me at $1550 + shipping... if a group buy was organized 5 people is less 10%, 10 people is less 15%....
I'm assuming the 165 and 185 shafts are the same dimensions and fitment into the trans and rear diff?? i hope....

Well I would be interested to buy one. My old stock driveshaft is bad and I don´t want to rebuild it since its rusty, heavy and rebuild cost (bearings etc.) will be considerable. I like weight reduction also. So if we could get 10 people into group buy...
Second option could be to contact another companies that make CF driveshafts for quotation?

Anyways If there will be group buy, I´m in.

I would definitely be interested in a group buy but from a reputable source. Obviously Driveshaft shop is well known but the price would have to come down a bit.... Would anyone be interested in organizing a group buy again?

I'm up for it too. Missed the last one and my drive shaft is shot. Moaning and the brains have to much movement.

If there is another group buy please start another thread. That way these two issues are split. Whoever decides to run the GB please be sure to add a link here as well. Thanks.

Haven't heard of or seen a multi-piece cf driveshaft for a st205. Has any one invested the money into getting one designed and manufactured?

One of the guys in the gt-four.ch forums has bought an OEM ST205 driveshaft and sent it to driveshaftshop for them as a model for a two-piece carbon-fibre one.
This was three or four years ago, their quote was around 1200euros as far as I remember.
Not sure if they still have it laying around somewhere...

Stupid question, but reading back through the thread cars like the RX8 and 350Z come stock with a CF driveshaft. What are the odds that the ends on one of those could be modified to fit our cars?

I already checked. That is why I wanted measurements. They are too short. Only way to make them work if you had a longish extension that connected and I am not even sure it would work.

Ah right I forgot about the added trans length. Maybe an Impreza or Evo one?

I was thinking of modification of impreza or evo driveshaft too, but what it will cost? when evo/ impreza drivehaft costs 1100 and celica one costs 1550, then its IMHO not much cost effective for the trouble of making it.
