Question 2010 CAMARO DRIVE SHAFT

Does any one know if the new camaro is going to come out with a 1 or 2pc drive shaft?

The reason I asked is because I remember when the GTO came out I had a buddy put some tires on one and broke the 2pc drive shaft on the car. Along with the half shafts on the street but thats another story.

Hmm, good question, haven't thought about that until now.

I would definitely hope for a one piece driveshaft.

I wonder if there are pictures of the undersides of some VE Holdens floating around, that would be good to see.

I assume the 1 piece is more durable..fewer parts mean fewer points of failure.

The 2 piece is more prone to breakage under heavy stress. A 1 piece will be available if the production car ends up with a 2 piece.

Half shafts / center section may be a weak point as well if you plan on beating on your Camaro hard at the strip.



I sent out a call to the Holden guys. I'll post something as soon as they respond.

BMR make aftermaket drive shafts for the GTO because they are weak if your in to drag racing. So I know they as well as a bunch of others will have a drive shafts and half shafts if needed

Also 1 piece is lighter.
