Exclamation YCW Engineering Dry-Carbon Driveshaft - Pre-Order Special

Hey guys,

now that we've got some testing and feedback under our belts, we would like to start our Official Pre-Order for the YCW Engineering Dry-Carbon Driveshaft:

Some images of our processing:

Dry Carbon Fibre Spool


Dry Carbon Fibre Weaving

MSRP will be $1499.95. This is around $100 more expensive than our competitors, but we are the only company to make them from 100% Dry Carbon Fibre (you can google wet vs dry carbon), and the only company that can balance them to 12000rpm with minimal vibration.

During back-to-back comparison tests, all of our competitors carbon propshafts vibrated like crazy once spinning over 5000rpm, as none of them possess the machines that we do to manufacture custom joints to within 0.02mm tolerance. Ours are also stress tested to withstand over 5500nm torque (that's over 4000lbs)

You can also view a review of our current M3 fitment (with images during installation) here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1311848

Pre-Order
10 Confirmed Buyers - 30% Discount off MSRP ($1050) + shipping
15 Confirmed Buyers - 35% Discount off MSRP ($975) + shipping
20 Confirmed Buyers - 40% Discount off MSRP ($900) + shipping

Shipping to NA/EU/AU via UPS: $150
Shipping to other countries: Please PM

With the design work on the flanges almost complete, we should be able to start making a couple of test samples in December to test for installation/fitment. Providing everything goes smoothly with those, we would be looking at around January to begin processing of the production batch (i.e this Pre-Order list). Whilst we are adding to the Pre-Order list now, we won't start taking deposits (50% required) until after we have finished the test samples for installation/fitment.

Due to the different driveshaft length, we don't, unfortunately

We can make one, but would need a working sample, and at least 5 confirmed orders.
