Just to bring you into our world a little bit, we here at DSS go about things a little different than
most Drive shaft companies. Most shaft companies buy the separate Shaft parts, they put them together and send them out the door. We are a full 50,000 sq. ft machine shop and manufacture a lot of the parts that we use, so when it comes to having trouble with a particular part we have not only the engineering in house to review the problem, but also have the machines to make the parts needed to correct these problems.
So going back to the slider, we went ahead and produced a female slider and it was considerably better than the Ford Explorer/Ranger type, but we still had some cars that had a stability problem, so we went even further. During this time we had taken delivery of a new type of balancing machine (show machine). This was a custom built machine that our owner Frank had spec’d out with the company’s engineers, and were told the machine would take 3-4 months to make. Well, one and half years later we took delivery of the machine (3/2010) and a whole new world was opened up. Most are not aware that a balancing machine normally does not spin a shaft at the actual speed that the shaft will be spinning at, (click here for more about this) and to make a long story short, this new balancer has the ability to spin a shaft at any speed we want from 10RPM right up to 9500RPM (and everything in between). This balancer has enabled us to see the male/female slider type shaft become unstable at certain speeds and helped us to understand that we needed to take a different direction to make the shaft correctly.
What may come as a surprise to some is that we actually had the CV style driveshaft pictured in our 2009 Catalog, expecting the arrival of the new balancer. We wanted to wait to make sure that it was as stable as we had hoped by testing it in the new machine and that is why it was not used before now. Some time has passed and we were not only able to test the shaft in the new balancer, but we have given these shafts to a few chosen, well known shops for testing. The results are in, and every single car has been flawless. We were able to achieve exactly what we wanted, the best balanced shaft without the problems associated with the harmonics problems of a slider and strength without compare.
