Any of you gents near Ontario California??
OK, here's the deal, we need a donor to go to Inland empire driveline to see if they can come up with a one peice carbon or aluminum driveshaft for the V.Luna. said:I have family that live in Chino (right next to Ontario), so I'm there somewhat frequently. And yes, Barak is located in Ontario I believe.
BMR no longer makes one for the V. In fact, other than the proto-type I'm not sure they ever sold one. I did read of one GTO that blew apart their BMR CF driveshaft. BMR stood by the customer on this case.BowenCT said:Wasn't BMR doing a carbon fiber drive shaft for the V?
Well, they have to put the car up , take a length measurement, look at the connection points. The object is to go to a one peice shaft. This 2 peice thing is from the 60's I dont know what the Idea was. It certainly isnt that long. My boat 96 impala had a one peice. If they can come up with something you would probably get a good discount or a freebie and the rest of us would get a reasonable price on a light shaft. The big issue is clearance. The shaft on the V is very small in diameter.Barak said:Lastss,
I'm less than 3 miles from them. Do you know how long they would need the car for?
I called them but basically they said they couldnt do anything w/o a shaft or the car so I went no further. I would make an appointment as se what you can do. This would be a sweet group buy. With proper attachment, would help reduce weight and any vibration.Barak said:Lastss,
Have you spoke with anyone at IE driveline about this?
Maybe we can find some time in the next few weeks to make it down there. Let me know how your schedule looks.
