I'm hopefully stepping up to a transbrake and delay box this winter to try and get more consistent/better lights in 2014.Rolling Eyes .....Right now I have a stock driveshaft of sorts with a 1330 series u-joint on the front end and a 1310 at the back end. I want to get a new driveshaft made to handle the increased shock load. Should I use a 1330 u-joint or step up to 1350? The rear-end is a built 9" piece, N-case with 3.89's and strange guts/axles. The C6 is a car version with the odd side mounts.

1350's are pretty standard racecar stuff now. Do it now so you won't have to do it again.

That's pretty much what I figured too, the yokes appear to be stock stuff. The lincoln C6 tranny is so long the drive shaft is tiny...LOL...I have 2 truck version C6's which are shorter, I wonder if it would be worth switching to one of those? - save about 10lbs. I have a 2nd long tail-shaft C6 here as well. The tranny that is in the car works A1 so I'm not sure if I should just put a transbrake VB in it and run it or make it my spare and build a fresh one. This tranny has 15yrs of racing on it about 6 weekends a year.

I'm a big fan of overkill in that department, because when a yoke or u-joint fails, it usually takes out a bunch of expensive stuff.Sad  Don't ask how I know.Rolling Eyes

We have a couple of really good driveline shops here and the shop where I dyno'd my engine also makes drive-shafts for a lot of local racers. I'll have to buy a new slip yoke and a yoke for the 9" in 1350 series first. What brand of u-joints are you guys running? Right now I have Precision super strength joints in the stock shaft.

Ooh... not sure about the brand of joints.  Mine is a custom shaft from a shop in Florida. Joints came with it.

Neapco, they also make u-joints for other companies usually when you buy a company's heavyduty u-joint you are getting a Neapco re-boxed. All the driveshaft shops around here won't use anything but.
