There is more going on here than people realize. We have a club member that put in an aluminum one-piece shaft on her 2017 5.7 M6 RT. I've driven that car many times before the new shaft was installed. But now the rear tires spin so easy, it's as if the engine gained much more power. She is impressed to say the least. Me too. This is bizarre. :eek:

Not bizarre; the OE driveshaft has a fragile shock absorber in the middle of it...

It was RyzRT that convinced me to get a 1pc, even though my old shaft had not gone bad yet. It is a noticeable improvement for sure. And good piece of mind.

Parts moving around (diff in cradle) (cradle in relation to chassis) (driveshaft in support) (spindle in relation to chassis) (yeah, all that is rubber mounted) actually helps with traction not the opposite. Same principle as needing some wrinkle in the sidewall

Yes, without all that, easier to break the tires loose. Just makes sense. Depends on what you want to do.
