How To - Install A One-Piece Driveshaft
Dynotech Engineering Services’ one-piece aluminum driveshaft reduces the rotating drivetrain weight in S197 Mustangs
When Marlon Mitchell of Fly Ford Racing called us about this innovation from Dynotech Engineering Services, we had to see it. From the factory, '05-'10 Mustangs are fitted with a 38-pound, two-piece steel driveshaft supported in the middle. Only Ford driveline engineers know for sure why Mustang is fitted with a two-piece driveshaft, but you can bet it is centered around reducing harmonics. Ford wants you to enjoy a smooth ride.
Dynotech's one-piece, fully articulating aluminum driveshaft not only simplifies your modern Mustang's driveline, it gets a whole bunch of weight out as well.
Installing the one-piece Dynotech driveshaft is something you can do in your driveway or garage in about one hour. We're visiting Fly Ford Racing in Southern California for a closer look at what's involved and what this shaft does for performance.
