Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Group Buy 2012
Post by: Karlos the jackyl on January 17, 2012, 12:40:25 pm
Right I spoke to my supplier regarding these the tail end of last year  and the price had increased due to the manufacturing process.

The shafts are now made from an even stronger grade of steel , this in return has pushed the price up.

I've tried my best to haggle the price down however its the cheapest I can get.  Standard price for these are 250-300 each inc VAT

The new revised price is on the first page.

If you'd still like to go ahead please PM me or reply to this thread.

thanks

Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Single orders accepted 2013
Post by: Tav on April 04, 2014, 07:45:00 pm
If we can't get that answer then could just get a new batch made from somewhere else.

Looking at the cost of Quaife shafts for other cars I could prob. see about getting a batch of 10-20 made.
Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Single orders accepted 2013
Post by: Ben.lopo on April 04, 2014, 08:27:37 pm
I'd be in for this
Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Single orders accepted 2013
Post by: Tav on April 05, 2014, 02:31:12 pm
I've got a standard shaft I can send them but it'd be nice to have an uprated one to send too.

I'll get a min order on Monday. Then depending on that and cost I might be able to get them without a group buy.
Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Single orders accepted 2013
Post by: Tav on April 08, 2014, 08:39:52 am
Ok so I've been in contact with two suppliers.  Drive shaft is in the post to one and the other has provided a price.  Cheaper than the individual price on the first page by some way, with a 'life time' warranty and made with a very high grade of heat treated steel.

Once I have prices from both I'll see about getting a batch made.

Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Single orders accepted 2013
Post by: Tav on May 05, 2014, 10:36:13 am
First one is looking like £250 region, but is mega spec. F1 grade material.  Prob. a little OTT.

Sent shaft to Quaife the other day, so expecting something more sensible from them.  Ideally want the number 1 at the start of the price.
Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Single orders accepted 2013
Post by: AdzCM on May 06, 2014, 06:21:52 pm
How long until you know, and how long until they are made? I'm coming close to the time where I'd need the driveshaft. I'd pay the £250 for that one haha.

We're talking weeks into months, not days into weeks.  There would need to be a window for manufacturing.  Hope to get an answer from Quaife in next two-three weeks.
Title: Re: Uprated Driveshaft Single orders accepted 2013
Post by: dubstar on May 29, 2014, 12:44:36 pm
I'm interested in one of these too, as the original driveshaft mated to the 843cc donkey might not be up for constant hard - launches even though power delivery is a little less harsh on turbo motors.

Post by: Tav on June 03, 2014, 09:26:10 am
Option 1
Ok can confirm I can get a proper motorsport spec. shaft made from S155 with a life time warranty for £260 inc. VAT.  These would normally be £370.  So quite a discount!  Min order is 10, so £2700.

Option 2
Will update in future with Quaife price.

Had a few people ask me about these recently so I had a word with one of my suppliers who can do a S155 toughened shaft for about £100, MOQ of 10 and a 45 day lead time. 3 or 4 gone so far, don't mind sorting this out.

A little feed back on the shafts. Work prefect for me but I did add a stop to each end so you could use the concave washers to stop the joint moving on the shaft. Mine had a lot of movement before and actually produced a noise due to the inner cerclip knocking against the joint over bumps where it was able to float on the spline. But nothing a few hours couldn’t fix though  🙂
