Key advantages of a carbon driveshaft over a 2 piece steel OEM driveshaft:

  • Lightweight: Carbon driveshafts are significantly lighter than traditional metal driveshafts, reducing rotational mass and improving overall vehicle performance.
  • Increased Strength: Carbon fibre is known for its high strength to weight ratio, providing improved durability and resistance to bending and torsional forces. (up to 4000nm constant torque) 
  • Reduced Vibrations: Carbon fibre dampens vibrations better than metal, resulting in smoother operation and less stress on other drivetrain components.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Unlike metal, carbon fibre is not susceptible to rust or corrosion, making it ideal for use in harsh winter environments.
  • Enhanced Performance: Carbon driveshafts can improve acceleration, throttle response, and fuel efficiency due to their reduced weight and rotational inertia.
  • Longer Lifespan: With proper maintenance, carbon driveshafts can have a longer service life compared to metal counterparts, reducing the need for bearing or universal or CV joint servicing or replacement.

Installation Note:

Once installed the Supertec Racing Carbon Driveshaft has a 10mm telescopic travel between the gearbox and differential. It is crucial to ensure that there are no other objects within 20mm of the driveshaft. 

*Weight will vary depending on model between 7.48-7.8kg. R32 GTR driveshaft for Getrag being the shortest and weighing in at 7.48kg/16.50lbs (See pictures) and the R33 GTR 5sp driveshaft being the longest weighing at around 7.9kg.

Comes with 12 months warranty - subject terms*

Taking orders for new batch due late June 2024. Cut off to finalise is 20 May.
