Product Information

ACPT Carbon Fiber Driveshaft BMW E46 M3 2000+

ACPT has developed a carbon fiber driveshaft that allows a 1000 RPM increase in the engine speed and gives the engine a chance to work at its power peak. Its track tested at well over 800 horsepower. Its a stronger,lighter, direct replacement for your stock aluminum driveshaft. Which are known to twist.

You can achieve rear wheel horsepower gains of more than 5% with the simple switch to an ACPT carbon fiber driveshaft. Carbon fiber offers you more strength to resist extreme torque than steel with about half the weight. Just like the common use of the lightweight clutch and flywheel units, a lightweight driveshaft allows more of your engine's power to be applied to the ground during acceleration.

In addition to minimizing rotational power losses, carbon fiber's unique vibration dampening characteristics also help improve power output.

Please Note: All aftermarket driveshafts might be slightly larger than factory specs therefore minor clearance might need to be cut or cleared in the driveshaft tunnel. Driveshaft should have a minimum of 1/2" clearance for proper use.

TEXT_OF_5_STARS Posted on 09/05/2013 by by David
"from N. Hollywood LA. I am a proud owner of a 2004 seca blue m3 cabriolet. I have every Mod on my car, except for some internals, it is a fully blown NA Running Epic street tune. I also have a JB 10.5 lbs flywheel w/stage 3.5 spec clutch kit on SMG CSL DME. The Carbon fiber drive-shaft wrapped up my drive-train with my drive-shaft shop stage 5 axles. I added every mod one by one, including the drive shaft. MORE POWER LOW & HIGH RPM. the same way you feel the power from a lightweight flywheel, but imagine the power delivery much more smooth and creamy. down-shifts and up-shifts feel firmer and faster, and the lag between the gears is gone, feels like DCT from E92 m3. MUST UPGRADE, just like Headers. Well worth the money :D NOTE TO REMEMBER, use lock-nut bolts, the ones that came with the drive-shaft came loose after a week, Thank GOD I caught it before major damages. Thank you VIVIDRACING"
