'95 SVT Cobra

How much horsepower can a stock driveshaft handle? After all of my upgrades my car runs awesome, she pulls all the way through fifth gear now, no lowering in pickup at all. But some of my shifts seem so hard now that I'm afraid I might twist it. I already have a aftermarket flywheel and clutch rated to 500hp, so I'm not worried about them. It just seems that with all this new parts the shifts hit like a hammer

W/o slicks chances are you won't twist it, I'd be more concerned about the u-joints failing and add a loop. For less then $300 you can get an FRP aluminum shaft which is stronger, lighter, and will improve ride quality.

Thanks, I planned on a aluminum driveshaft but that was on the backburner. I replaced the u-joints about two months ago

Oh and I ride with Nitto street/slicks so she grabs like a beast

I'd definitely plan on getting a safety loop ASAP. They are a good investment on any modded Mustang.

I've been looking into those, do driveshaft loops need to be welded or are they just bolt-on?

Ordered it and since I was on the phone with Summit I also ordered sub-frame connectors and an aluminum driveshaft. Now the waiting game,
