Powerful Performance Safety Reliability

AUTOMOTIVE

Tested and refined on the road, track, and at sea for over 25 years; ACPT composite drive shafts lead the industry and set the standards that all others in their industry are judged by. The advanced, market leading technology of ACPT drive shafts have been tested and proven in some of the most demanding professional and real-world environments around the world.

Many of the automotive, commercial, industrial, defense, and marine industry leaders have chosen the ACPT driveshaft for everything from a cost effective daily application that may be used in street rods, tractors, trucks, boats or car; to the more refined and specialized use in custom applications. These custom applications include some of the most demanding and technologically advanced high performance vehicles in the world. ACPT driveshaft’s are not only for some of the fastest vehicles but also some of the toughest, like those used by the United States military. ACPT is proud to be one of the few companies in the world that have ever been chosen to supply carbon fiber products to the United States military.

Performance

tested

Proof Test Cycle – (indicate graph position) Proof test cycle to 3,500 ft-lbs CW, hold for 15 seconds, cycle at 2 Hz between +3000 ft–lbs CW and 1,500 ft-lbs CCW, then proof at 3,500 ft-lbs for 15 seconds. Design Qualification Test to Ultimate Failure – (indicate graph position) Failure at 5,980 ft-lbs is well above the yield strength of 2260 ft-lbs for the 1350 U-Joint. This illustrates that the tube and bond are not the weak link in an ACPT drive shaft. 

ACPT carbon fiber drive shafts provide added safety for drivers in addition to all the performance benefits. Despite the safety hardware in use today, many injuries and even fatalities are caused by the lethal force unleashed on the chassis and driver by a fractured metal drive shaft. Unlike a metal driveshaft that fractures when the U-joint or yoke fails, a carbon fiber drive shaft will simply disintegrate or “broom” leaving the chassis and driver safe from harm so both can race and win another day.

Advantages & Benefits

Independent tests have shown that a simple switch to ACPT carbon fiber drive shafts will produce rear wheel horsepower gains and cut NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harmonics). Since 1987, racers in all areas of motorsports (drag, dirt, drift, road, and street) have discovered the extra performance edge delivered by ACPT carbon fiber drive shafts.

The unbeatable reliability of an ACPT carbon fiber drive shaft has been proven time and time again in the real world and in the scientific testing environments. It lasts 3 to 5 times longer than any other type such as an aluminum shaft. This fact coupled with the weight savings, inherent safety, reduced wear and lower drivetrain vibration, means you can’t afford not to run without an ACPT carbon fiber drive shaft.
