Those are the ones.

The old CV's were actually from an Acura Legend, they guy that built them said they could handle 1000+ HP, but no one was ever sure about the angles. When I told Aaron I broke one he said he was surprised it lasted this long... lol

Hah! Nice work!
Should be interesting to see how the 930s hold up.
How has the rest of that front end been holding up?

nice, acura CV's.. i never even thought about looking around for another car for donor shafts.

1000 hp is one thing.. launching a truck is another


very impressive carnage. i bet those porsche shafts were a pretty penny.

So far so good. In nearly 4 years I've only had to replace the bushings once (my choice, weren't bad, just loud), the inner/outer tie rods once, and now the half shafts.

It was only the inner CV's, the shafts custom and the outers were Ford.
