I installed my diablosport trinity a couple days ago and I feel the difference! Its amazing! Great power and torque gains, and before I could only top out around 115mph and the other day I hit 140 so that's always exciting lol

Yes if you don't have the tires and driveshaft don'tgo that speed... Not only your drivetrain but your life!

Yes, show him the video of the only driveshaft we've seen explode and tell him how no one else has the problem, but his will explode too.
They are rated AT FORD at 130MPH before they fail. The guy on the video was the only guy to actually try and push his car further then it's able to and he now paid the price and screwed up his whole car. It's cost that guy his left and right nuts to fix that car.

But if you care to disagree and not heed our warnings try it out and let us know how it goes man. :) I sure as hell don't go faster then 115 my tires are rated at 120mph

I don't believe it actually has to do just with top speed. Think it's a combination of speed and RPM. Maybe more so with the latter. If you're at 6-7+k RPM all the way up to 140 it may just be too much stress on the drivetrain. If he were in say 5th or 6th gear easing in to 140 at a lower RPM, I doubt it would explode. Also, could have been a defect from the factory or another unknown reason. I'm no mechanic so these are just guesses. But I'd think the the faster the DS rotates, the more likely of a catastrophe. But I've known quite a few others do do over 130 w/o problems or explosions.

But either way we do have a weak driveshaft compared to the GT. Why? Idk. I would think it'd be cheaper to have the same component in all models. Also, unless you are on a track or the autobahn, there is no need to go these speeds. It's just stupid. And if you do go these speeds, I personally would want all the safety equipment possible on my car to avoid such catastrophes. We do have limiters for a reason ;)
