I don’t doubt DA of -2000ft.
My best (So far) Dragy 0-60 was at -1617ft.

You also have a stage 3 AMS tune. His 0 to 60 was within a couple tenths of your time on stock wheels and tires. That doesn't seem odd?

Yes it does. Especially since I used LC at about 9 psi.
the Facebook link doesn’t work for me, does it show his 0-30?

3.5s 0-60 is awesome regardless of the DA! My best time in OH valley winter is a whole second slower. There aren’t many cars for the price point and looks (especially the Q60) that can achieve that.

Before and After.

Car is a 2019 Q 50 Luxe
Only Modification is K&N Drop in filters
Stock 297whp // 272 wtq

It was an very hot day in south Florida.
93 octane with ECUTEK

Car is a blast to drive and I can't wait to start adding some more modifications.
Grats sir, some LDP and exhaust definitely help get that torque number up!

JB4 is your tune ?
He flagged it as ECUTEK.

Did you feel any performance out of the one piece driveshaft? Thinking of going that route but just want to know if it really helps other than just being able to handle more torque.

Short answer: just to handle torque.

Do you only care about “feel/butt dyno”? Or factual data and physics calculations?

Long answer:
Many people claim to “feel” a big difference (usually proportional to how much money spend, so they don’t “feel” like they’ve wasted money) the actual physics can and pretty much has been calculated. Rotational mass has been drastically over exaggerated and especially when it involves driveshafts. And whatever you do don’t increase the diameter of the driveshaft to lose weight (aluminum) as you’ll actually lose performance (although such a small insignificant amount it wouldn’t matter)

I had a CF DS cutting DS weight in half on my 17’ toyota 86, a much lighter and lower power “drivers car” that would benefit from weight reduction/rotation mass much more than this platform and it did almost nothing for “feel”. It essentially had the same “feel” difference as when I did trans mount and rear diff bushings. Nothing for acceleration though. And at the cost it is practically the absolute last mod to do unless you manage to break one.

I don’t know about feeling anything but I like knowing that I’ve eliminated a couple weak links between the trans and diff.

My 2017 Q50 RS400 (mods in sig) made 351 whp and 384 wtq, as baseline. Then I made an impulsive move and had the car tuned on Ecutek. Makes 448/505 on 94 oct.
