........... There's some periods for you. From that essay it sounds like the center carrier bearing surround??? It is not available. The best "fix" is a one piece aluminum drive shaft.

^^^^ I can speak for the Drive Shaft Shop's service. They took care of me 6 years after I bought one from them. To answer the carbon shaft question light weight makes it easier to get higher top speed without vibration and destroying itself. Besides balance two things will let it spin up faster; weight and length. Along with alignment it's why they come stock two piece (two shorter shafts) and why you can buy them like that. My one piece aluminum shaft with my 3.91 gears (which make the shaft spin faster for the same MPH) can "only" go to about 145 MPH. I'll never hit that so it's no problem to me.
