    OP -- here is what I have. I pulled this from the car back in 2010 and haven't looked at it until tonight. The yoke looks great - no grooves, nicks or visible wear. The rear joint may have 1,500 miles on it. The shaft has marks back by the rear weight -- nothing I did to it, and a couple of small nicks about halfway down. Check out the pics and let me know if everything looks ok to you. I included pics of the packing process as well.

    Black smudge in the 6th pic is grease -- I wiped it all down before wrapping it.

    I think Dan's shaft is the one that needs protection. Mine found a nice safe clean home!

    I find it odd that you'd have a perfect box like that to put your shaft in.

    Isn't it every man's goal to find "the perfect box"?

    It is actually the UMI box from my panhard bar. Only one I had that would work.

    Too bad about you drive shaft if I can interject if you are running slicks get a loop you were lucky this time it happened on a launch and no one was hurt seen these come out across the track hitting the car in the other lane or worse yet through the floor. good luck finding another.

    We were hotlapping like crazy last night! I have a 2002 WS6 6-speed. FTRA, lid, K+N filter, smooth bellow, 90mm FAST manifold, SLP longtubes, and 3 inch borla adjustable catback exhaust with the full cutout in. Best time was only a 13.25 because I was skating through 1st and a little swervy into 2nd but I still kept on it anyway. My 60 ft. was close to a flat 2 even without being able to hook it up. 15 PSI in the ET streets (only 275s so nothing too big). I was launching at around 2,500-3,000 most of the time so I was kinda asking for trouble with a stock driveshaft. Even with the tires burnt up pretty good I never had a perfect hook... always a little slippage at best. This was probably my 6th or 7th run in about an hour right here. Everything was perfect except for the bad omen of the mustang's nitrous backfiring right next to me and him shutting his car down. I ripped the tires up till I couldn't see behind me. All alone at the light it turned green and took my time slowly revving to at least 3 grand. Needless to say I had my perfect hook, because my driveshaft completely shredded when the torque hit. We pushed it back and a footlong piece of flattened out tattered aluminum fell down onto the track. I'm keeping that piece for my wall. All in all a good night!
    Big HP and sticky tires = broken parts. Glad it wasn't you rear.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555

    Ehhhh... I wouldn't even say big HP = broken parts. It's more like decent hp = broken weak parts 8)

    Back when i had my ta, i had some 275/50/15 et streets on it and took it down the track. Every time i tried to launch it, it would fall flat on its face. I tried everywhere from 1500-3000. On the street, never had a problem. Spin around 20 ft, then grab second hard and third and fourth. I tried launching from a idle and did a little worse than launching around 2500. Best time was a 1.959 60ft, 8.728@81.36 1/8th, and 13.586@103.12 at the 1/4.
