Driveshaft durability

I've always wondered how good these driveshafts really are. Do they have a high rate of failure? Can they explode just like the ones in the v6 mustang when it exceeds 113 mph?

I don't think the KK can reach 116mph.

With the hypertech tuner you can raise the speed limiter I believe one guy did it and reached over 130mph

Yeah I meant to say 113. I don't know where 116 came from.

Most of our tires aren't speed rated for 113 anyway. More like 90.
