DSS is proud to announce we have started making the direct bolt on rear axles and both a Aluminum and Carbon driveshaft for the BRZ, over the last few months we have made quite a few custom parts for some of the top drift teams and now we have the parts for your car. Higet Hp version coming soon.....

Awesome. Will your driveshafts fit Automatic transmission BRZs?

I've never heard of aftermarket axles. What's the advantage?

Also, Rally Sport gave a review of the carbon fiber driveshaft. They loved it, but don't expect significant weight savings to justify the price. Just enough the performance!

The axles are not needed unless you have enough HP to break them, as for the shaft there is allot more to changing the Driveshaft out than just the weight.

Less rotating mass feels like more HP. Its just like a lightened flywheel. It will affect performance almost as good as unsprung weight, but you will mostly feel it on the acceleration side

There is a little more to this on a car, being the factory shaft is a two piece the hanger bearing is surrounded by a soft rubber. when you step on the gas hard or let out the clutch fast the hanger moves up about .750 to 1.00 so the shaft has what we call hanger lag, with the single shaft the drivetrain is more direct or athletic feeling. the response is more direct and solid. I see another manufacturer mentioned in the thread. keep in mind all DSS shafts are balanced on a one of a kind cutom made balancer. These shafts are balanced to actual speed, most balancers do not spin this fast they are only looking for weight centerlines and sometimes miss what this machines see's.

take a look (not the best video but it gives you a good idea)

That's beautiful! Thanks for the explanations, guys! The driveshaft advantages I was aware of, but it's cool to know more about the axle.

The Factory axle is a combination of both Toyota and Subaru parts, the outer ends are the same as most STI's and the inner is thr same as a Supra (2nd gen) the axles we have made so far are using a 300m sub into the diff (allot stronger then it needs to be) with a 108mm flange for the Porsche style inner CV, we have found this Cv to be superior to most and with the ball and cage set up will not have issues with either Hp or lowering the car and putting them on an angle. The center bar is also made from 300M, normally we have used 4340 but being its only 2wd we wanted to make sure the bar did not have issues. We then used our Billet outer CV for the STI. this is a race proven parts that has been used for many years. We assemble all our axles using a high grade synthetic grease and quality boots. hope this helps.....
