    Gc8 driveshaft limit

    What sort of power can new oem gc8 driveshaft handle before the driveshaft break? What's the most common to breaking front or rear? Car is running 6 speed.

    seems to me that hard launches or applying full power with steering input can break driveshafts even with standard sti power levels...a 15 year old shaft living in the dirt and poop under a car is probably not gonna last forever-mine just spins the rear wheels with loads of tyre smoke if i try a hard launch -if it hooked up it would probably reguarly pop a diff and or driveshafts ,,imo its a relatively cheap, weak link to fix if it pops its clogs...

    There are loads of different shafts, be more specific. And the application, and usage etc.

    But as above, in general they are fairly weak.
    speed didnt kill me, but taxation probably will
