I was kidding with you...I would assume you'd want to be able to drive 85 safely. There's some good information in the tech articles about driveline critical speed. I had a shaft made for mine, because I'm running 4.56's, and trap over 100. Last thing I want is a driveshaft letting go, especially with the placement of the gas tank in these cars.

edit: by the way, where in Ohio are you?

yes you could even hunt for a 93 mark 8 one-piece shaft and have it high speed balanced. when i had 3.73's it did vibrate after 85mph but i went with a mark ds and had it high speed balanced and index'd and it never vibrated ever again..

I run mostly at National Trail....about 30 miles east of Columbus. As far as the shaft, I had mine made at Columbus Joint and Clutch for about $225. 3 1/2" steel shaft balanced to 8000 RPM.
