I'll let you know by Friday whether I'm in or out. Have to fork over $500 for my 6GC because the fuel lines started leaking under the car so I'm doing a bunch of stuff while everything is out.. :x :cry:

I hope I can swing it, but it's going to be tough with the semester starting back up next month.

I asked acpt about driveshaft differences and they confirmed it is the same as the last time they did a group buy for this shaft. I was concerned about that too

I was told the same about it being their last drawing but I was also told if it was wrong we are SOL and they weren't going to be making adjustments for free and that that we should confirm fitment. I was actually arranging a group buy last fall but when I ran into this I was going to mock up a shaft at these dimensions using a hacked up stock shaft and some pipe before I brought it to the forum.

Ryan's overall FOF to tip measurement is 81"

ChrisD wrote:Checked with a friend (GT4RC) who has it fitted on his car. His drawing is the same as above, which is identical to the one provided in this GB. His shaft fits no problem.

He also mentioned the steel bits have surface rust now. Wonder if they'd be able to provide a coating or something?



The exact same print we are using for this group buy is the the same as they release from the last group. buy. Looking at the print, the tolerance are very tight. I can always trow this on coordinate measuring machine when we receive it.

The best way to really know if this fits properly & correctly with minimal or no adjustments is to contact the people from the 1st GB buy and chime in if there is any issues with the installation and performance assuming it was installed properly and running. Some not all that bought them never really gave enough detail of the upgrade. Either their AT is still in a project stage or not able to install it due to time and money. IMO I need a descriptive enough info with the CF shaft before coughing up over 1k.

Sent my completed credit card form. Had a last minute convincing with the SO.

Did we figure out the coating?

I've been running my ACPT propshaft from the 2012 group buy with nearly 50,000 km on it. It's been through winters with temps dropping to -35C.

Propshaft still in one piece.

As was mentioned earlier, there is surface rust on the joints of my prop shaft, so I would also recommend looking into some type of coating to keep it looking good.

So before I send the payment over this week, there's definitely going to be no fitment issues? Just making sure before I fork over the money for this.

I contacted ACPT regarding the length concern. They assure me that they are using the last print used from the last group buy which has no negative feedback. Here or the company.

-three more people we are waiting for to start the production.
