Strength might not be the issue anymore if you can't find a driveshaft to hold up.

Are you wheelhopping?

Are you preloading the driveline or shocking it with instant torque? If you shock the driveline, it will always twist the shaft, everytime, even if you get one made from uber-unobtanium.

You need to learn to preload the driveshaft and driveline.

Also, MANY drag racers here say to use radial tires. Still go quick and fast, but don't break parts. Slicks put too much force on the driveshaft, clutch, rearend, etc.

You need to at least slightly slip the clutch before you dump it to preven this sort of thing, but don't slip the clutch too long if you have a "normal" single disc clutch because it could cause the clutch to heat up too much and sieze!

Hope that helps.

Good luck on your next driveshaft.


Take Care
