GForce Releases 3.5-Inch Aluminum Driveshafts For S550 Mustangs

New from GForce Engineering – the 3.5-inch aluminum driveshafts for the 2018+ Ford Mustang S550. These lightweight driveshafts can handle up to 850 HP for improved acceleration. See more details below.

Official Release:

For driveline strength that matches the performance of the new 2018 Ford Mustang S550 with its 10-speed automatic transmission, GForce Performance Engineering has introduced new one-piece aluminum driveshafts and 850-hp axles.

Track numbers for the 2018 Mustangs are exceeding expectations, meaning builders are already hard at work figuring out ways to make them go even faster. The GForce upgrades are ready to maximize the 10-speed’s improved acceleration and response, while handling increased stress and abuse.

“We think racers are going to fall in love with the new Mustang S550, so we got to work engineering products that will maximize its potential,” said Jesse Powell, GForce president. “These new driveshafts and axles are easy, effective upgrades that drivers will benefit from right away.”

GForce Engineering aluminum driveshafts are precision-engineered, one-piece driveshaftsdesigned for use in high-performance, high-horsepower vehicles. Much like the rest of the GForce Performance Engineering driveshaft line, the 3.5-inch aluminum model for S550 applications is high-speed balanced, features solid-core U-joints and is a direct bolt-in factory replacement upgrade.

No CV joint means there aren’t an extra 5 pounds sitting on the front of the driveshaft adding stress and loads on the output shaft and seals. It also means no CV joint wear or service. The rubber couplers that are found on the OEM driveshaft are eliminated as well. These new driveshafts only weigh an average of 17 pounds.

Each shaft is a direct bolt-in factory replacement for a perfect fit and alignment. Both the front and rear adapters bolt to the stock yoke or flange with the supplied hardware for a trouble-free installation.

Features:

  • 6061-T6 Aluminum Driveline Tubing
  • Splined Slip-Shaft Design
  • Solid Core HD U-Joints Front & Rear
  • CNC-Machined Billet Adapters (if applicable)
  • Bolt-in Installation
  • Peak HP & Torque Increase
  • Reduced Rotating Mass
  • Increased Fuel Economy
