3″X.083″ Seamless 3 inch Chrome Moly Driveshaft with cast iron weld ends and Heavy Duty U-Joints

A Strange Seamless 3 inch Chrome Moly Driveshaft is constructed from heat treated chrome-moly tubing. The tubing is 3” OD (Outer Diameter) and has an optimized .083” wall thickness to fit a variety of applications. Strange Chrome moly Driveshafts are also used in Street, Road racing, Oval racing, and other applications.

Our build team uses special fixtures so that the weld-ends are properly phased as to eliminate driveline vibration. Every shaft is electronically balanced with a total run-out of less than .008”. Drag racing driveshafts take a lot of punishment, especially in very high horsepower racing applications. This makes the driveshaft a vital component of the performance of a drag racing vehicle. Compared to mild steel driveshafts Chrome moly Driveshafts are stronger, they are also able to withstand more torque, and therefore have more stability at high RPM.

The Cast Iron Weld ends are recommended for cars making around 600 WHP or less. For cars making more we typically recommend our U1702 3 inch Chrome Moly Driveshaft with Forged Ends.

We have a specialized order form to ensure the perfect fit for your vehicle. The length, diameter, and RPM it’s going to spin at are vital to make sure you do not exceed its critical speed. Doing so can cause distortion, vibrations and eventually failure. If you have any questions then call a Strange Sales Associate to discuss the proper driveshaft diameter to order for your application.

If your rear yoke is smaller than a 1350 series, it may be the time to replace it. The driveline is only as strong as the weakest link and a new yoke will change your measurement.

Strange offers a complete line of transmission yokes, rear end yokes, and u-bolt kits to complete your custom driveshaft. We also have a downloadable pdf that you can download, fill out and send back to us if you are not ready to place the order online.
