    Been getting my car setup to hit the strip this fall and would like to run 10's N/A before possibly changing to boost next season. Have A10, 3.55s, and Drag Mode. Car is in process of being tuned on E85 via PBD. IRS is locked down and braced with BMR 005/762. I will be running 305/45/17 ET Street Rs on the rear. I don't want to take any chances with snapping the stock halfshafts so I am preemptively swapping them out before my first pass. I am willing to spend the money on the best I can get but for example if the GT350 shafts are plenty, why spend more money on the DSS 800/1400/2000 or any of the equivalent GForce offerings? I plan to start out footbrake launching the car but will try the transbrake if I can't get 10's on the footbrake.

    I'm in the same boat. Supposedly the manual 2018+ LHS axle is identical in looks to the GT350 LHS axle (no step down in axle tube diameter before the CV like the auto version). If they are just as strong as the GT350 one then it'll be much cheaper for me to source a regular Mustang axle in Australia. Hard to find definitive info though

    Get the G Force units. I have the 1500 hp series with no issues. I wouldn't trust a 350 axle.

    Ford Racing (G-force) halfshafts hands down the best! You will need them especially if you're going boost.

    I narrowed it down to one of the G-Force offerings. How do you rank the following? I was thinking the Ford Racing is in the middle of the G-Force branded shafts just based on cost alone.

    G-Force Renegade
    Ford Racing
    G-Force Outlaw

    Get the Ford Racing M-4130-MA, I got mine from White Bear Ford last year for $1,430 shipped, they have them priced at 1,512 on their webstore ,, You can likely call them and get a little better price.

    Well, I contacted them and somehow the price has gone from $1512 to $1930 + freight. F that! I will still be buying these shafts, just from another vendor. Hoping for some Labor Day sales to start soon.

    While I was having my 19 A10 engine replaced i wanted to buy only the LHS GT350 ( which they also had one one rack with locked up engine damn) and they said my car literally had the same part number when they looked it up as the GT350 driver side...??I could see if my car was manual but it's an A10?Did they change in 19?

    I have a 2019 A10 also. I am going to crawl under there and look closer at mine when I get home today. I know the driver side is supposed to neck down and be thinner than the passenger side just before the boot. That would be sweet if they are the same as the manual for 2019.

    I just checked and mine necked down towards the differential. I’m still waiting to find best price on the Ford Racing shafts. Come on Labor Day sales!!!
