if you need to go that speed in a falcon get a better car.

if you wish to do greater speed fit a aloy tailshaft of a xr6/8 or a 2 piece tailshaft, your crazy to do over 180 in a falcon no offence but there not a car built for speed

What he said :D.

next best thing for the price I would say agree with the Alloy Tailshaft. Not sure on prices on the 2 piece tailshaft but the alloy one is cheaper, I believe, but are harder to find.

phong =P~

Yer I agree with the speeding, but is there any chance this could happen unexpectantly at lower speeds?

A failing tailshaft is not something you would want to mess around with.

a*** i wont go over 190 maybe 180, I did in me CPFI EA falcon. I just wanted to know if they were strong enough to handle a decent amount of torque and horse power.

yeah 180 i thought was a bit excessive seeing when i only wanted to move over one lane i moved over 3. 160 is fine for me.

Ran mine at high speeds and never had a tailshft problem! But it is something to think of! If a one piece comes off at the front at high speed or any speed it will make for an interesting outcome!
