The factory driveshaft on your 2011 to 2014 Mustang is a big, heavy thing that can hold your Pony back from hitting those high speeds you need on the track or drag strip, and robs you of a decent amount of horsepower that's easily in reach. An aftermarket driveshaft can be up to 50% lighter than stock, which reduces drivetrain loss and can get your aggressive Pony build up to 15 horsepower at its rear wheels. More importantly, these Mustang performance driveshafts can support much higher speeds and power levels than your Pony's factory two-piece driveshaft, letting you go wild with power-adders and aggressive tuning. For added security or to comply with certain league regulations, we also have several driveshaft safety loops that keep your driveshaft of choice from coming into the cockpit to see if you in case of a failure while you rocket down the drag shaft.
A Driveshaft is an Easy, Quick Way to Improved Performance
A driveshaft generally isn't the first stop on a performance parts journey through the 2011 to 2014 Mustang GTs, but if it's not up there on your list for your own powerful build, you're probably doing something wrong. An aftermarket one-piece driveshaft makes for such an effective all-around performance improvement on the Mustang GTs that it should be a part of any Pony that's going to see even a little time down at the drag strip or road course. One-piece driveshafts usually weigh half as much as the stock two-piece units which gives your Pony back some extra power, since your drivetain loses less power down to the ground. These driveshafts can also hold a whole bunch more horsepower and torque over stock and handle extremely high speeds that would send your stock driveshaft through your floor boards. While not the first upgrade we made, installing a Dynotech 3.5" One-Piece driveshaft was a high priority for our 2012 Mustang GT 5.0L Project Car.
While a driveshaft is all well and good, most tracks require a safety loop to actually run your car after you've installed one. Not to mention, a safety loop is generally not a bad idea in general, if you're going to be using your car for aggressive applications. Since our 2012 Mustang GT 5.0L Project Car was going to be doing all of the above, we installed a BMR Single Front Driveshaft Safety Loop at the same time as our Dynotech Driveshaft as a fairly inexpensive and hassle-free insurance policy against disaster.
