Got a killer deal on a Spydershaft and CHE Front Loop I couldn't pass up.

Installed it yesterday afternoon/evening and everything went ok. So far no vibrations up to 115mph and I don't think the pinion flange i had to put on is leaking either. I absolutely enjoy it, car has more "zip" and gets up and goes faster now. The 20lb weight reduction makes up for the amps I installed. Now I just have to see if there is a mileage increase.

My pinion angle is currently set at -2, is that a correct setting?

Also installed Redline Hood Struts. They are great!

thanks.

they are great, they look great, have the nice tips, and the sound is way better than stock but not over the top.

hood struts were easy. all you have to do is drill 6 holes and then install it. rivet gun needed. the instructions are detailed, comes with all hardware, and if you buy from american muscle you get the discount. they are way worth it over the hood prop.

No drilling required, uses stock bolt holes. Shelby, no logo.

very nice... price? it kind of looks like one of those hood struts where you have to lift it half way up yourself then it goes into gear.... and do they sell any black ones?

Thank's

yea its the best i can do. they were really bad before. basically what i did was jack up the rear end, and loosten the h-pipe clamp. then I put a 1'x4"x4" piece of wood under the muffler and let the jack down slowly on the wood until the muffler was where I wanted it. Then tightened the clamp and took out the wood/jack. no one but people like us notices now...

Man I envy you so much, I was mentally crying because I knew we weren't going to get that driveshaft:)lol), but I'm glad a MM guy got it. :D


I doubt there will be another deal like that for a new Spydershaft including the D/S loop for quite a while.

I read somewhere that 2-4 degrees is a good pinion angle. And when I was discussing it with a reputable driveshaft shop yesterday (because mine was way off), he said he prefers 3* if I remember correctly. If you have no vibration, I'd say you are good at 2*.

Hey Lime, how much did you get the 2 for?
$600 shipped

ok thanks I will keep that in mind if I see vibration, I will adjust to 3.

btw what kinda subs you running?
I have two kicker comp subs, powered by a class d mtx 300 watt amp w/capacitor. But I only have one sub in (tied down with a bracket for sharp turns) b/c of weight and space issues. I also have a full kicker cabin system powered by another 400 watt 4 channel mtx amp. This is all controlled by my pioneer premier headunit w/ipod.
