Our 2012 Mustang GT is destined for some drag-strip and road racing action, so it's going to need to squeeze every last horsepower out as possible, and it's going to need to accelerate quick and hold a borderline ridiculous amount of power at high speeds. To support all these noble goals, the first thing we grabbed for the second step of our Project Build was a Dynotech 3.5" One-Piece Driveshaft. Dynotech's driveshaft is about half the weight of stock, which wins back around 15 horsepower that gets lost from the stock driveshaft having to turn the heavy stock driveshaft. A lighter weight also improves acceleration and off-the-line performance, which is never a bad thing. Most importantly, Dynotech's driveshaft can handle up to 900 horsepower ad support much higher speeds than stock, giving us plenty of room to grow in the future.
While a new one-piece driveshaft is certainly a nice upgrade, things can still go wrong when you're doing hard launches at the track while churning out much higher power levels than stock. Since the last thing we really want is our Dynotech driveshaft to come up into the cockpit and say hello, we also grabbed ourselves a BMR Front Driveshaft Safety Loop as a preventative measure and insurance policy against potential catastrophe. Since we were under the car anyway to do the driveshaft, doing the safety loop was pretty much a breeze.
