hey guys,

the 90se runs the carbon tail drive shaft and the 90std runs the metal tail drive shaft.

is it possible to use the 90std tail drive shaft in the 90se or would it be best to get the carbon tail drive shaft ?

thanks
sam

Yes, you can run the std. drive shaft. Some here would even argue that the std. is better, I haven't tried it yet though.

Yes you can use the std shaft and it is less prone to failure since the carbon one can lose it's torsional rigidity---carbon fiber is strong in tension not torsion, so the carbon drive shaft has been known to "green branch" (my words---it's what mine looked like anyway.)

Go for the std alum. tail shaft. IMHO the SE carbon fibre one is a downgrade rather than an upgrade.

I just replaced the driveshaft in my SE with a standard aluminum one, the only thing is the aluminum one doesn't come with support bearings so you will have to remove them from your carbon driveshaft and put them on the new one.....other than that it runs smooooth.
