Aluminum Drive Shaft Group Buy

**** This group buy will be closing in a few days as enough people have expressed interest ****

See Payment Info below

This is a group buy for high quality 3.5" aluminum driveshafts from Dynotech Engineering.
This group buy is for driveshafts that will fit 89-97 Tbirds, Cougars, Mark VIIIs. Custom lengths are available, but all u-joints/yokes are 1330 and 28 spline. No custom hardware other than length.

We need a minimum of 10 people for the group buy price of $354each. This price includes shipping to the continental U.S.

For that price you will receive
A proper length 3.5" 6061-T6 .125" wall Aluminum Driveshaft with welded yokes
New u-joints
New Flange Yoke for the rear
New Slip yoke for the trans
All Assembled and balanced to 8000 rpm
- Balanced to less than .20 oz-in
- Shaft runout to be less than .010"
- U-joint clearance to less than .002"

If you want a new driveshaft, this is a great price. The main reason to do this mod is either worn or damaged existing driveshaft/yokes, or making significantly more power than stock or regular track use.

How this will work: If you will buy a driveshaft, post in this thread and PM to me your contact and order information. (Name, Phone Number, Shipping Address) As soon as there are 10 interested people, you will be contacted to get payment. The payments will be held for another week to let anyone one else get in on the buy. At the end of that week, the buy will be closed and the payments processed. After the payments are processed the orders will be built. It will take about a week to build all the orders and shipping can be from 3 to 5 days.

Payments will be processed through DirtyDog Performance as Alan there is handling the order for us. http://www.dirtydogperformance.com/

The group buy is closing and it is time to make payments. Alan at Dirty Dog is doing the collecting and will be processing the order. Alan has requested the following information be E-mailed to him. Note that I've sent him the info you sent me, and if that was good info for shipping and billing, then just send an e-mail confirming. If you're not sure what you sent, then make sure you send him new address info.

If you are ordering a custom length shaft and you haven't already provided the information to me, YOU MUST send that information to Alan.

Info Needed for Dirty Dog Performance:

Name:
Credit Card Billing Address:
Shipping Address:
Phone Number:
Email address you want tracking info sent to:
Length of shaft and desired yoke (aod or 4r70w):

If you are paying with credit card you need to call ALAN or include a good time to call YOU in your email to ALAN. Paypal does seem to be working but you need to transfer funds into your paypal before sending to me to avoid their fees.

Custom lengths are available for the same price as long as they are not some crazy length. I'm going to see if I can find out what type of weight difference we might see and post back next week.

Dirtyd0g
10-24-2009, 06:38 PM
Custom lengths are ok within reason I think they charge more for over 6 foot from the way their literature reads. Either a 4r70w or aod yoke shouldn't be a problem. Many guys run 4r70w extension housings on aod's because they are stronger. In fact if you are buying a shaft to handle more power I suggest you buy it that way. Extensions housings are fairly easy to come by. I probably have 30 spares.

All money will be processed after the quanity is determined. Once it makes it to the bank I will make the order.
Custom lengths I need exact dimensions. I will not be responsible for incorrect length shafts. When ordering you tell me what length you need and I will give that information to Dynotech. If it doesn't fit you will have to take care of it.

Dirtyd0g is the guy handling the transaction with dynotech and the money. I'm just organizing things. We need to have the money in hand prior to placing the order with dynotech. We DO NOT need any money prior to having 10 people expressing interest.

Once we have the ten. I will contact people to collect the money. I'm going to guess we won't be closing this deal until the second week of november.

Please don't say you're you're interested if you're not going to have the money when the call comes. we're starting this buy soon enough so that folks that are interested should have time to scrape up the cash if they didn't already have it.

Only 3 more folks. If we can nail them down by the middle of November, it would be great! Just so you know how good of a deal this is, even the other vendor I talked with (who was about 8% higher) admitted that Dynotech Engineering makes a good driveshaft. This type of deal highlights the benefit of having high quality companies competing against each other with quality products and services.

Well... We've hit our number. I'd like to keep it going until the second week of November so that we pick up as many people as are interested. Expect to start hearing from me after that. If we can find 10 people this quick, that usually means there will be 2 or 3 other folks that just don't check in that often that might be interested.

We need to squeeze them all in on one order, otherwise we would need another 10 total, to do another order.

So let folks on TCCoA know. I'd post over there but it's such a pain to deal with their group buy forum that it's pointless.

Have fun at SEMA Alan.

Yes, with 10 people on the list confirmed, we'll be going forward.

alan is at Sema this week. At the second week of november I'll post a notice that the buy is going forward and close the buy on Sunday. during that second week of november I'll be calling everyone to let them know now is the time to pay. I need to find out the details from alan on how to handle that. But my guess is you'll just call him and give him your CC info.

Upon receipt of the info from at least 10 people, he'll place the order with dynotech and get a estimated delivery from that.

Torque converter... i don't need one. Should talk to Alan when he gets back, and someone that wants to buy one can start the deal. I only started this because I need a driveshaft. It always makes sense that if you need to buy a part for your car that others also might want, and you can get a discount if you buy more than one, then do a group buy.

Find enough people I can get a better price on parts if I buy volume. The more I save the cheaper I can sell them for. It comes down to needing to order at least 10 kits of the same style, meaning if one person needs 31 spline(c6) style it wouldn't count.

Oddly Ken I still have a converter with your name on it here. I originally built it for Mike38SC on a deal but he doesn't come around much anymore and if he ever gets to needing it I will build him another. The one for you is a 10 inch unit, but if you prefer to go 9.5 we can do that as well. I will talk to sonnax tomorrow to see what kind of break I can get on parts if I order 10 kits at once. The 10 inch unit was a custom built I had parts laser cut for years ago, but have not produced any since.

Ok I just got off the phone with sonnax, it would take an impossible quanity to get any discount out of them. Any discount for a group buy has to come out of my labor. Normal price for these converters is $525+ shipping.
I did the math on everything and tried to figure the labor hours saved by building several at one time. doing one usually takes about 5-6 labor hours. However when doing the same job for example 5 times I save time by not having to change the equipment over.
The best deal I can make is $475 if we can do 5 at once. If some how we come up to 10 of these I can do them for $460. If I go any lower than that I am working for free.
Specifications of all models.
Billet 9.5 inch front cover, bolts are installed backwards and welded in to serve as studs, new nuts are included.
Units can be built with the direct drive or without, cost does not change. All components have hardened splines.
All turbines are furnace brazed, as well as the pumps. Stator has bearings on both sides and includes the standard roller clutch with my custom modifications. With my lube modifications this roller clutch handles up to 400ftlb with ease. I have used them up to 600 without problems. Above that we have to choose a much more expensive component and it is highly recommended to go 31 spline. For those on the edge of 400 hp I have a race change that will move the rollers onto a larger diameter slightly and increase the amount of spline drive. The cost for that modification is $35 The best thing to do is tell me what you have and let me make the decisions on what is needed. I will not sell you something you don't need unless you specifically ask for it. That is not my style.
I am not going to include shipping on this deal but these things are light. average shipping from here to california is about $35, and anywhere in the eastern US it is about $22
For those needing 31 spline units I can do them at the same price, not including the shaft.

Someone please make a list of the people, location and how they intend to pay. Options are cash,check,money order,visa,mastercard,discover and paypal. Exact prices may vary dependant on payment type.
My paypal fees are high, 3.9% I believe. Visa and mastercard are at 3.43%(rounded) plus .25 per transaction discover add 1% to visa/mastercard. Checks,cash and money orders have no fees.

I was planning on sending pay Pal. When I click on the personal tab you receive the full amount. There is no fee. It is like a money transfer

You can try but I think that depends on the type of account setup on my end. If you setup an account that can take credit cards they take fees on everything. If you cannot take credit cards there are no fees. I'm not trying to make any money on this deal,but I am not going to lose over payment fees either. If it gets to complicated I'll just say everyone has to send me checks to get the price. I don't want to do that because it takes forever, but if I have to I will.

Why dont you let me send you a small down payment on the drive shaft using Pay Pal and see if it will go through with no fee and then we will know.

Yeah just try $10 because that will tell us what they are really getting rate wise. Give me about 5 minutes to transfer the few bucks in my account off so it is completely empty.

If this works, let me know how to do it to avoid the fees. I'll pay with paypal either way, but if I can avoid the fees, that would be good. Just let me know if it works, and if not, how much to send. Thanks.

I click on send money. I than put in the E mail address than under that the amount and under that are two tabs one for Purchase and one for Personal. I click on the personal tab and than click on any of the reasons for payment listed and click on send. Brings up another page saying the receiver of the funds will receive what ever you sent him. I dont know if there are other factors or requirements that allows fee free Pay Pal but it works on my account.

Go ahead and finish it when you like. We should be ordering in a couple days now.
For those with orders and payments. Please send an email with the following information to alan at dirtydogperformance dot com
Name
Address/ for credit card I need billing and shipping.
phone number
email address to send any tracking to
length of shaft and desired yoke (aod or 4r70w)
We have count and we are ready.
If you are paying with credit card you need to call me or include a good time to call you in your email. Paypal does seem to be working but you need to transfer funds into your paypal before sending to me to avoid their fees.
It would greatly please me if we could have this good of a turn out on converters :)

I didn't realize this buy was going to close so quickly. I guess I figured with winter approaching we wouldn't be in such a big rush, I have not had time to calculate/measure what length DS I actually need + I have not had time to put together the money. I still want a DS but I'll need more time.

I agree with you Dave. I don't know why there needs to be such a rush on this. That's part of why I didn't get in on it. I bet if they waited until around the first of the year to close this, a lot of people would join in for possibly an even better rate. I know that's far off, but this would be a good way to spend that holiday bonus, christmas cash or be a nice gift for the SC nut in the family.

I have a bunch of them. If you just want a good used one $15, if you want me to put a new bushing on it and seal $30.
Alan

The rest of the comments I was under the impression we would do it when everyone has paid. I don't really see the need for the rush I don't see the prices changing anytime soon. The only rush for me is that I don't want to be holding peoples money. I haven't run any of the credit cards yet I wanted to do them all at once. I have recieved 3 paypal payments so far. If you guys would like to set a date that we say is the deadline then we order for everyone who has paid at that point that may be the best to keep everyone on the same page. We do have a few months before anyone really needs their shaft.

From the very first post:

How this will work: If you will buy a driveshaft, post in this thread and PM to me your contact and order information. (Name, Phone Number, Shipping Address) As soon as there are 10 interested people, you will be contacted to get payment. The payments will be held for another week to let anyone one else get in on the buy. At the end of that week, the buy will be closed and the payments processed. After the payments are processed the orders will be built. It will take about a week to build all the orders and shipping can be from 3 to 5 days.

I am sorry if that had some folks thinking the buy would be running for months and apologize if some thought the plan wasn't ideal. Now is kind of the wrong time to be talking about it though.

Those of you in on the buy, you have mine and alan's e-mail address and phone numbers. You have been e-mailed by me and or Alan about payment. I've only heard back from one person that said they needed to drop out. Otherwise I assume things are moving forward for others.

XR7 Dave
11-21-2009, 06:01 PM
Sorry didn't really read the fine print, anyway, it's not just as simple as sending in some money for me as I have to coordinate my short car with the T56 that's going in it. I have to mock up some stuff to be able give a final dimension. If it means I can't get in I'll deal with it later. If the buy can wait another week or so I'll be good to go. Sorry for any confusion.

So if we make it that the order is placed the 3rd week of January, is that better for folks? I'm not in a hurry, I just don't like the idea of a group buy that goes on forever and nothing is ever ordered.

How about this? (not fine print) If you're on the list for the group buy, and you CAN NOT WAIT until the Jan/Feb next year, either e-mail me, or post in this thread. Otherwise we'll assume you can wait. Note I'll have to check with alan, as price increases can happen Jan1 for many companies, so I'm not sure if the wait will impact our price with Dynotech.

fturner
11-21-2009, 07:57 PM
The only problem I see with this is everyone right now is basically commited to buying so they have the money.... BUT

ALOT can happen between now and the end of January, including layoffs that for some reason seem to happen quite alot around Christmas.

We could end up with several drop outs and no group buy so no one gets a "deal".

I vote this should be completed as originally planned.

I say we shoot to place the order on the 15th of december. Almost another full month so that several people who just cannot be in right now can get things ready. At this point we do not have count. We must wait until we do or quit trying.
I think we can make count by then. I have a few people interested that just are not ready.

Be reasonable, how many people are going to join in just before Christmas. That is the time they are buying presents. Once you hit the Thanksgiving high mark with a product that can not be delivered by Christmas you are better off waiting until next year. So I agree with fturner, get it over with. :)

You are aware that saying get it over with without the count means exactly that, we tried failed and it is over. I think that decision should be left up to those who want in on this. I don't care if it takes 6 months personally.

I will wait untill Dec 15 but after that I think it is getting dragged out for the people serious about getting their drive shafts. The original intent was the second week of November (see post 27) So there is no reason to say it is being rushed. Mike layed it out real clear in my opinion.

I'm still in, but may need another week or so for the cash, so I vote for the delay even if it is 2 weeks from now is better for me.

Guys, do what ever works. I said I want one but I have not been able to get the dimensions. The original buy was up for less than 30days which is short for a major group buy. I didn't ask for another 3 months. I didn't even ask for another week. I just posted why I haven't paid - I don't have the measurements yet! If you want to go ahead without me so be it.

I believe the decision is going to be to go forward with this sooner rather than later. If anyone has issues with paying or providing measurements the first week in December. (i.e. payments processed December 7th, let me know)

I know of at least one participant that is looking to get a shaft as his car is DOWN currently without it.

For those reading this Group purchase is now closed. The order has been sent to dynotech. They informed me they would need to order parts to get this done so we could be looking at 2-3 weeks before all are completed.
For those who may get the need I will be a dealer for dynotech at this point. Obviously I cannot sell them at this price because it took an order of 10 to get this price(and I had to talk them down a bit as well). As with everything else I do I will be fair so if you get the need feel free to call or email me.

As typical, the thread is pointless without pics. Here they are. When you get the driveshaft, make sure you inspect it for any damage right away. They won't listen to you 3 months from now if you try claiming it showed up with a dent.
