PST Carbon Fiber Driveshaft for AWD TT/VR4
3SX now carries PST carbon fiber drive-shafts! Weighing in at a svelte 17 pounds for the 1-piece shaft and 27 pounds for the 2-piece kit (not counting the included carrier bearing), this is an EASY way to get more power through to the wheels by reducing the drivetrain loss ratio. These driveshafts are precision made and save precious weight over the factory setup, helping to reduce the high drivetrain loss, thus getting more power through to the wheels!
NOTE: These driveshafts are designed to fit as a factory replacement, but may vary in size from factory dimensions and angles. Installing aftermarket components without proper supporting modifications for the intended driving use (i.e., hard drag racing) could result in damage to components. High-rpm launches with worn out motor mounts, struts, and chassis bushings may result in catastrophic drivetrain failures. Check clearances bewteen driveline components (driveshaft and exhaust, swaytbar, underchassis, etc.) before driving/racing - custom mounting modifications may be required to accomodate various combinations of aftermarket parts.
PST Carbon Fiber Driveshaft - 1-piece - 5-spd or 6-spd
NOTE: These full-carbon driveshafts are made to order and typically take about 2 weeks to ship.
Please note that as a general rule, our recommendation is to run the 1-piece shaft if the car is more of a track car used for road course and drag racing. On cars that are primarily street cars we highly recommend the PST Hybrid Aluminum Steel 2-Piece Driveshaft as this gives a lot more flexibility due to having the carrier included. While the driveshafts are balanced by PST prior to shipping, due to the nature of the length of the 1-piece shaft on the 3S platform, PST has informed us that it is not out of the ordinary to experience some increased vibrations in the chassis particularly if you have hard or solid motor mounts installed. For this reason both PST and 3SX recommend a 2-piece shaft for street cars.
PST Carbon Fiber Driveshaft for AWD TT/VR4
With hundreds of PST driveshafts sold over the years, 3SX has now worked with PST to create a NEW version of their 1-piece full carbon fiber driveshaft - a RACE version! This new driveshaft takes the long-standing 1-piece carbon shaft and replaces the u-joint ends with much stronger solid spicer-style u-joints to better withstand hard racing like drag racing and auto-cross.
Weighing in at a svelte 17 - less than HALF the factory 3-piece beast - this is an EASY way to get more power through to the wheels by reducing the drivetrain loss ratio. These driveshafts are precision made and save precious weight over the factory setup, helping to reduce the high drivetrain loss, thus getting more power through to the wheels!
NOTE: These full-carbon driveshafts are made to order and typically take about 2-3 weeks to ship.
Available for both 5-speed and 6-speed TT/VR4s.
PST Replacement Carrier Bearing
If you need a replacement carrier bearing, they are offered separately. The PST 2-piece driveshafts for the AWD 3000GT/Stealth/GTO (both the Carbon Fiber and the Aluminum/Steel Hybrid shafts) do NOT use the factory Mitsubishi carrier bearing. They use one available separately through PST and offered here. We offer them as the entire carrier and bearing assembly, or JUST the bearing insert separately.
NOTE: If you buy the 2-piece driveshaft, a new PST carrier bearing IS included, you do not need to purchase one separately.
PST "PEP" Program - Preferred Extended Protection
PST has extended their PEP Preferred Extended Protection plan to include the 3000GT/Stealth driveshafts! When purchased WITH your new PST driveshaft, PST will offer an extended warranty good for the life of the shaft. The program is good for the original owner of the shaft (it is not transferable) and is a great benefit for the owner! This protection program covers all types of failures, including ujoint breakage, broken carbon tubing, broken tube yokes, defective workmanship and materials, and even damage as a result of impact damage!
Please note that the program does not cover shipping charges to PST or back to the owner. The program is administered and executed by PST who will issue a certificate to the purchaser/owner. The PEP must be purchased at the same time as the driveshaft, and the certificate will arrive directly from PST (which may be separately from the driveshaft depending on 3SX current stock level).
Now you can buy your PST driveshaft with the added confidence that it is not only the best driveshaft in the market, but it is backed by a company that stands behind their products and supports their customers even in the case of unforeseen damage and failures!
To purchase the PEP Program, simply add your driveshaft to the shopping cart, click BACK, and then add the PST PEP Program to cart.
