Well what I really want to do is use a drive shaft from a donor car something that is stronger than whats in it now.I'm not sure if the original drive shaft will hold up. When the 78 Camaro came off the show room floor it only had about 190 HP,and not real light either 3800 lbs.So I think this drive shaft (original) my not be strong enough.I'm out of cash, threw it all at the 700r4,so its use what I have or find a straight one in the bone yard.I can cut it and weld it just need to get it balanced.Anyone out their do this? One more thing carbon fiber drive shafts,I'm forever stepping over them, are then good for anything,can they be shortened? I don't know much about them.
