we still need 10 people for the Carbon Drive SHaft.....Im already fronting a brand new Shaft from tischer out of pocket....plus whatever the carbon shaft will cost me......im gonna invest out of my own pocket on this so anyone who wants to help that would be great.
We really need at least 10 guys to keep the prototype cost down to 1200.00 a set......

I realize this is for the M but does the M and the 3.0 share the same driveshaft?
If so I would be interested adding power seems to be tough on the si so taking weight off seems the best route.
