If all we have to do is change the u joints it'd be worth saving $450. The stupid thing is ours used to cost $1000, I'm still kicking myself for believing ACPT would keep making them.

I have an email from the driveshaft shop back in July that quoted me $1200 plus shipping and if we had 10 Orders we would get a 10% discount.

Me too for a ST205 version.
ACPT should still have a used ST205 driveshaft a German GT-Four.ch forum member sent them.

Abraxxa - UK ST205 owner fitted CF prop shaft from Driveshaft shop. It is possible to get a ST205 specific item from them but I would assume that you'd have to be quite specific in ensuring you get the ST205 unit built :)

You may want to check if you have the centre bearing mounting on the trans tunnel

Here are some more details:

Interesting, thanks!

ACPT told us they would make a two piece version with one center bearing in one of the two original locations for us.

Driveshaftshop doesn't list the one ali86 got on their website: http://www.driveshaftshop.com/import-driveshafts/toyota?limit=30&mode=grid :shrug:

I wouldn't expect them to list custom items and they don't even list the ST185 unit on their website.

It'll never happen, just like the RC lip. Seems to be the trend for recent group buys on the forum now.

I'm already communicating with the ACPT. If I get enough people interested, the better the chance this will happen.

Price will be depending on amount of order.

If it happens, I'd be in. Might be able to get some of the local people interested. Pick some threshold numbers and see what they'd cost at each point. Is ACPT interesting in producing them again?

Seems like they are. I'm using my workplace name. That may have grabbed their attentions. Still waiting on replay for price per driveshaft vs 10-20 pieces .
