Those do look pretty sweet.

The big thing is how will they hold up under normal racing conditions and for how long. I have bent a couple of the MIP steel ones in the last couple of weeks by landing wrong on the big Triple at our local track.

I will be getting a set to try out and see how they work.

Our prototype shafts have been on the tracks (high bite, blue groove, loamy and blown out) for the past 5 months. They were designed for the stock/super stock racer in mind but have been holding up to 19 turn and lower mods with no breaks. The production shafts are even stronger than the prototypes. I have spent a good deal of time working on these shafts so that they do not disappoint. Thanks for all the kind comments everyone

I ran a set of the production ones with a 7.5 last night and they were fine. Very lightweight too.

Those look very nice. Any chance of adding another 2 or 3 sets of holes for the CVD pin so the bone can still be used once the CVD pin holes start to wear?

The second/thirs pin hole idea has been thought about and may happen pending testing. Thanks for your compliments and interest!
