GM Performance Driveshaft for $125..

So for a M6 Camaro you can buy a GM Performance Driveshaft for $1095. Or you can buy a EBay ZL1-1le (so you KNOW it is a manual), and just bolt it in. I paid $125 for mine with no donuts.

For donuts, as far as I can tell the ZL1-1LE donuts look to have more "windows" vs the SS. Here is a picture of my SS donut. Post your ZL1 donut. Now save some money and get your self a bullet proof shaft. I will say this, if I had more time I would probably melt down urethane and fill the secondary mount, because it is the same super flexible rubber and it is too weak IMO to hold against heavy launches. Or maybe some sort of self hardening rubber like the liquid tape.

Good find
Def a much less expensive option for us M6 guys

So this basically fits the same as stock driveshaft?

Any updates with the driveshaft? How's it holding up?

My thoughts on the driveshaft is that the middle "carrier bearing" thing is so loose and weak that it allows too much up and down movement on big power which turns to weird angles and makes things break?

Just go shift back in forth in a garage and listen to how loose and sloppy and cheap crappy it sounds from the driveshaft banging up and down.

Does the ZL1 one seem any stiffer with up and down motion? I assume the excess slope in the carrier bearing is to try to absorb and dampen vibration at higher speeds (I believe these driveshafts are inherently subject to vibrations at highway speeds)

I'm not sure if the donut thing is made to be sort of like a rag joint or if its for vibration as well.

Oldman has only put a total of about 2000 miles on his "build" before parting it out so honestly it's not going to be enough to gauge drivability issues with this driveshaft.
Anyone else have experience with these ?
