I agree with Keri, that if not for the likes of Pat and even some mr2 owners,that mods for both the celica and the 3sgte would not have been possible. I also don't see why anyone should make a big deal of doing a little dremeling. If its weight reduction you're after, then toss the oem seats for fibreglass ones....that'll save you at least 75 lbs net.

I have learnt over the few years that lightening a drivetrain is much more important than getting rid of sprung weight (not that this isn't important also, just more inconvenient).

Just by moving to a lightened flywheel alone most if not all who perform this mod agree that they feel the difference. And I am sure for anyone who can give a review of the driveshaft mod would say the same too.

So again I ask, who's in for a next batch of the acpt driveshafts?

Autobot, I guess it all depends on numbers, which is why I posted to see who's interested.

i'm in the "eventually i will get it" camp.

see, i've just finished work on my car and it will be a while before i touch my car again, cos of time contraints and also because i'm a little tired of working on cars. but if a purchase of these were to happen now, i can do it and add the driveshaft to my stockpile of "parts gathered to be installed later...eventually" :)

I'd take one too if they make one that fits the ST205.

So after sitting for for two hours going through pg1-30, there's only one review? If I just spend $1000 on a part, that sucker wouldve been in the next available day. Come on guys, I got excited seeing pix at Page SIXTEEN - half way through the thread. I'm on the fence pending more reviews.

Or, Maybe I could get an oz of gold instead. :smokes:

ha ha ha well I jumped on this when it was out at first because I knew it was such a great deal... just haven't had the car running... so thus no CF driveshaft install, and no review.

last i checked an oz of gold hit $1200 or so ... should've considered buying when it was still under $1000 an oz.

at any rate, i'm happy to have the d/s installed on the car & what other people do with it is their own business.

I want one of these sooo bad.

I was planning on buying a few other things first, but I'll try to get in on the next group buy if I can save a little. Or was this a GB only type of deal? Either way, I will buy one if I can. I'll just have to save space on my credit card so I'm ready when the time comes. :P

Has anyone tested it on a 165 yet? I just assumed it would fit because I always thought 165/185 driveshafts were interchangeable.

I purchased mine after the (1st?) GB. Not sure what kind of review folks are after. You either know what you are buying or not.

Love mine.. no complaints here..

This forum hasn't changed much. Good to see some of the OG's are still around trying to educate people.

Peace-

hey man, i don't know anything about this group buy, but when i was at SEMA i talked to some people and found a shop that would make one. they seem very reputable and i believe it would be a pretty comparable price. This is the link http://www.driveshaftshop.com/
Mention that i talked to him at SEMA and he'll likely remember me. he might even be interested in doing a group buy sorta deal.
