You can't just slap on an aftermarket performance part (in this case gears) and push the car's limits without accepting that you might require other prerequisite upgrades

And my stated "5% of owners" is probably a gross exaggeration

Better engineered driveshafts are available. If you think Ford / Ford Racing should offer an aftermarket driveshaft, or even as a factory option, that makes perfect sense, but to put in a performance driveshaft as a stock part and bump the price of the V6 is a bad business move.
That's funny because in the Coyote 5.0's ,SN-95's and SN-93's you can.I've never seen a driveshaft break on me and I was double the factory HP and now I'm triple with an upgraded driveshaft for weight savings.
