    I'm on the fence about if I need it or not. My car is a DD(drive to work 2 to 3 days a week 80 miles round trip) when I don't work from home. I am also in debate on trading her in soon for something else. Ugg!

    You don’t need it.

    This is an “I WANT IT” kinda thing.

    I went into this knowing full well that less rotating mass = performance increase.

    I’ve said it before, you do feel the gains. They are real, they are noticeable and it gives this car an American Muscle feel to it that the Ford Powder Puff Team tuned out.

    Agreed. Faster to the higher rpms (where these cars shine) and instant response. I saw some reviews claimed .2 off the 1/4 with no other changes. Not sure about that personally but that was on pre 18 vehicles so would like to put that to the test in drag mode at the track.

    Does ShaftMasters make this driveshaft for Steeda?

    Kelly @ BMR and forum member Wildcatgoal deserve credit for bringing attention to Shaftmasters Driveshafts.
    These two guys made the decision easy when surveying the landscape of S550 One Pc. driveshafts.
    If memory serves correctly Kelly tested for Shaftmasters and that 2/10’s E.T. reduction was backed up with more than a few laps down the 1320.

    The review I saw was actually for QA1 CF but same principle. Lighter weight plus stronger than stock to safe guard for later power adders. My decision was also persuaded by the fact Shaftmasters doesnt make one for the 18+ A10.

    Did any of you notice improvements at the drag strip after installing a lightweight driveshaft? If so, please share details.

    Too hot for strip at the moment. 112 out today. See improvement in regular driving will definitely see improvement in drag mode in the quarter. Some reports of .2 off 1/4 times in some reviews even, though have not validated that personally yet.

    One would assume that if its faster to the higher RPMs and there is no clutch slippage or wheel spin then it would have to be quicker on the 1/4.

    The old bum-o-meter is a good indicator sometimes.

    it can also lie, lol. I've added mods that made the car seem faster but it was the same or slower (switched the torque curve). I am after every single tenth in et for the strip so its tempting me to purchase the Steeda DS.
