RACEGT Drive Shafts and CV replacements

Ok People

I have now fixed my clutch problems but I feel that the problem may transmit to the Drive shafts and CV joints.(Resulting in broken ones)

I am now looking for an upgraded Drive shaft replacement which posibley do away with the CV joints and install Universal joints.

Anyone know of a place that can make em for me. Im told it is the same setup used in the LS1 commodores.

Re: RACEGT Drive Shafts and CV replacements

I am currently manufacturing Full billet half shafts this includes the knuckles being billet as well, the torsional twist will be better than the stock ones so as to absorb some of the shock.will be a couple of weeks though.

Re: RACEGT Drive Shafts and CV replacements

Race, there's a place on Douro St I've used called A1 Auto Balancing. The owner, Pete Smith, seems fairly knowledgeable, at least in old school stuff, it may be worth sussing him out for yourself.

Re: RACEGT Drive Shafts and CV replacements

i remember Peter from APS was saying on saturday that he is developing driveshafts for the XR6 Turbo, which would obviously mean they are interchangable with any BA IRS.

Rod Your correct
the LS1 OEM equipment uses C.V joint but some of the guys are getting Universal joint made up with stronger shafts.

I spoke with DriveShaft engineering today on the matter. I need to find them a sample of original equipment to make up these drive shafts cost is about $1800- $2000.

Ben is also a Forums member, WTB156, and he knows what he's talking about.
