found only one - from BMR Fabrication. Are there others to compare it to?

That's the only carbon fiber one I've found. I've been looking at the Powerhouse aluminum driveshaft. Considerably cheaper and those on here who've purchased them have been happy.

You can build your own aluminum driveshaft from a Ranger driveshaft for about $350 or so.

The BMR one is made somewhere else and is the only one I know of.

I have and am VERY happy with the Powerhouse alu 1-piece! I know CF should be as strong but I still feel better with alu going over gravel etc. TQ, strenght and weight wise they are compairable. I actually think the alu ones are a bit lighter than the CF one...!?

To make your own you have to know a great welderer. Plus balancing can get VERY pricey!

Did you pick up any off the line speed going with the aluminum drive shaft?

Yes. Like with the initial tune that take the thrttle lagg out the sturdier DS will apply the power to the rear and the seat of your back quicker. It is much more dirrect and easier to get a feel for, like on a lounge. They say they are good for 10-15 HP due to less rotationl mass but I don't know that for sure. I do know I thrust it with my 560 RWHP and I love the feel!! Easy install too! Remember the lock-tite!!

The CF is probably a little more prone to getting chipped which will have adverse affects on strength. Not that I go over gravel very often.
