yes, most reports are a 5-10 less hp loss. I don't think any cars come from the factory with cf, but they are big for aftermarket muscle cars for drag racing.

I'm kind of surprised CF shafts never caught on with the aftermarket crowd. Drivedrain loss can be a ***** and a lighter shaft would seem like a good solution. I'm not sure how much one would cost, likely more on the high side, but you would think there would be a market.

one of the articles I read said about 3x that of aluminum, so about $900-1000.

when some one can spend that much money on engine parts and over come the hp loss or even have more hp than with a cf driveshaft.

CF driveshafts are good, strong and lightweight. Impressive Nissan would do this from the factory.

Although, I honestly don't know what to think about CF driveshafts in general. I've seen a turbo AWD DSM have its CF driveshaft shatter like glass on a dragstrip.

Must've gotten the bad one of the bunch? Or just maybe because he's putting down too much AWHP. *shrug*
