Your videos are well worth the wasted time at work (IMG:style_emoticons/default/2thumbs.gif)


Haha, thanks.

Here's the next round of time wasters:

Earned myself a DQ and I'm not talking about Ice Cream. Sat. August Mid-Ohio 2018: https://youtu.be/oyssMIQK-T0

Missed it by that much. My turn in the spin cycle. Sun. August Mid-Ohio 2018: https://youtu.be/vF68_usb0yY

Carbon fiber driveshafts are the least reliable race car parts Iíve ever seen. Cost us a few races, refuse to ever use them again. Not worth the weight savings.

I was just considering one from ACPT for open road racing (concerned about balancing / vibration, and critical speed) ... any thoughts on if it would survive (pretty much in high gear(s) 90% of the time) ? Or bad idea ?

With the amount of failures Iíve seen, Iíd rather not run carbon.

Consider NASCAR cup cars do 200 all day long with steel driveshafts. Our TA2 car has a steel shaft, and itís smooth at 170.

Get something nice from Mark Williams or Dynotech. It wonít vibrate. If you have a vibration it wonít be from one of their driveshafts.

Thanks ! I sent an email to Dynatech asking for pricing on their 3" Chromoly driveshaft # CA/TA-CHM-3.0
