That's really cool news. I was told by a mechanic that I know quite well that the driveshaft of the 335i is not really conceived for coping with torque that is double that of the stock engine. I also know that a few tuners in Germany use strengthened driveshafts for their 1M Coupés, although I believe that these will probably be steel driveshafts rather than carbon fiber ones.
I'm definitely interested in this. Great development, Dzenno.
Any news on development for 6AT cars? We don't want the MTs to have an unfair advantage ;)
Thanks guys. DSS is working on this. They didn't realize the differential side of the driveshaft didn't have a CV on it and was secured with a lock nut. Initially they thought its like most setups with a CV there so its a bit more complicated and they've ordered a driveshaft for themselves to use for specs/measurements. Let you know how it goes.
Is your car sitting driveshaftless until this is built?
If so, what a tease! Car was running beast mode and then another road hump =(
I paid $989.99 for a DSS CF drive shaft for my built 04 cobra making 800hp. It held up nicely. Not sure why this one would be any more than that one..?
Now we are talking..LOL
I didn't mean any disrespect, and I'm a realist. I just hope that we don't get a nefarious BMW tax and see them priced much above $1200. IMO that would be the cutoff point between selling a whole lot of them and selling a few only to those trying to eek out every 10th of a second they can in performance. <$1,200 should bring in those in the above category as well as those wanting it just for the "I have a CF drive shaft" cool factor and extra money to burn category.
Given what I know I don't think you'll be disappointed when it comes to the price ;)
What does an OE replacement drive shaft go for?
I support the guy telling DSS to lower prices :P
OT: I just bought a COBB AP and I'll contact you once I get it for a) troubleshooting my broken down car and b) get an E-tune when RBs are slapped on the car, around January :)
600-ish + a month wait stateside.
I wish this would fit my car.. Grumble grumble different lengths grumble lol
This driveshaft shoudl have been names after me, BuraQ DS
Sounds good on the tune, any time..
I had the shaft we received on the bench and was trying to figure out the spline size, its not a standard one but not a problem. Is there any chance the person that broke there pinion off still has the male portion ? ill just have the tool made.
