    Trophy trucks are awesome...that shop should know a thing or two about building driveshaft.
    You definitely don't want to skimp on this since a failure on this part almost gaurantee a catastrophic damaged.

    I feel your pain on waiting, been 8 weeks for a set of BBC blower pistons, it's getting real bad.

    And don't worry about any FT lifters, that's not looking great either.

    Got the driveshaft installed and finally got to drive it around today . Even though I'm running a full billet steel spool I don't feel it unless going very slow around corners or turning sharply in or out of a driveway
