New Group Buy Uprated Driveshaft May 2011!
« on: May 14, 2010, 10:37:10 pm »
Uprated Driveshaft group buy is on May 2010!


In a nut shell  if you have an LSD or a powerful car that runs decent tyres on an open diff you'll certainly benefit from one of these. I've been running once since 2001 and never had any issues.

I would need to purchase in batches to 10x to get the  advertised price rightso  the more merrier , no profit will be made from these at all.

We need 10+ commited people for this group buy to happen.






---------------------------------------------------------------------------

1x Bare (Drivers side) offside uprated  driveshaft
Turned from a single piece of steel and heat treated, all the work is carried out by professionals in the trade and holds a material manufactures defect guarantee.

2010 Prices: £145 inc 20% VAT + £10 Postage and Packing

Slight increase over last year price due to increased VAT and  raw materials

Over 9+ years of production - with zero failures, Track and Road proven.


I’d like to stress that NO profit is being made from this group buy. To buy these individually cost at least double the amount.

This is a one off group buy Quantity of 10+ are required before we can achieve this price. If we cannot achieve 10+ orders I will offer a full refund to everybody who has paid.

Lead time: Minimum of 6 weeks from order date. (usualally up to 12)
The Group buy will close on July 1st 2011 so that gives people plenty of time to put aside some money (2 pay days away.)

The driveshaft is proving difficult to come by and with the increasing manufacturing costs these will only become more expensive as time passes so get one now while you can!




Payments accepted are:  Bank transfers,  cash or cheque ,   PayPal can be accepted but please allow an additional 3.4% + 20 pence on the total for the associated PayPal fee( unless you send as a gift ) .

To secure a driveshaft please PM me , I will then supply you with the credentials to make the payment. I will then add you to the list .

I've enclosed a PDF file  which is displayed below for more information. ( you can only see this if you log in

 I understand that there are many people "interested" in a the driveshaft , however if you definately want one  I'll add you name my orginal post after payment has been made, this way we will know for certain if we have enough paid buyers by the cut off date. It just sorts the people out who are  "interested" and 100% commited.




If you are ready to pay please  PM me and I will send you the details and once comfirmed cleared i'll add you to the master list.

Some foul the block and chassis on lowered cars. The diesel shaft as far as I’m aware is hollow, Speaking to the driveshaft specialist a solid bar made out of the right material will offer additional strength.

the diesel shaft I used to have, while most of it was thicker, still went too thin near the CV joint splines and still had a undercut radius here which is the weak point.  Plus it caught on my chassis and even engine block when 60mm low (albeit only really on track days when I had a poor suspension setup with too much body-roll).
