Sir.
i have gone over 140mph with the dynotech driveshaft. i would do it all over again.
i dont know about the DS that comes on the '99 to'00 CV but i believe they are also better than the factory MM.

I have had my car up to 160mph (stock 3:55's & stock drive shaft) with no vibration.

The transmissions are basically the same but the 04's have a slightly higher stall torque converter. I don't know if this will make a diffrence as far as vibration. I doubt it.

They make driveshafts for the Marauder, but they no longer use the MMC material.

add 1 to the 160mph+ with no issues. Only vibration I got was not practicing smart braking technique and getting wobble from the rotors. I will say though that I don't at all plan on doing it again, not particularly worth it.

BUT, from what I've heard that causes the driveshaft failure, there are two main things that come to mind: #1 EVERY driveshaft will have a critical speed, so ideally the smart thing to do would be to build a stronger tailshaft to insure that even if you can't have the most balanced driveshaft you'll have almost no risk of failure at that point. #2, if it's essentially a harmonic resonance point, theoretically once you go beyond that speed the resonance would drop and the vibration would subside much like an unbalanced tire. Am I crazy and there has been evidence to prove my theory wrong, or am I on to something?

Definitely get a good quality driveshaft if you will be hitting the autobahn. If my new ride hadn't come with a dynotech I would be calling PST in Clearwater Fl for a CF one. Quoted me $800-900 2 years ago for the CF and $500-600 for the 6061 4".

I would also recommended the tailshaft forced lubrication mod if you plan on staying at high speeds for a decent period of time just for that extra peace of mind.
