There is when even a 3" is a tight squeeze.Big names are simply big advertising, 57" isn't really long thats simply even on the cheap side a 4" stl shaft for those rpms. No need for a weight and power robbing 2pc.
My problem is, CF is expensive, and Ive seen CF shafts break. They simply dont inspire confidence for the money.you could run a 1 pc CF in 3" at 65" and have 0.0 issue at that rpm
What exactly are you doing and what is the vehicle ?
The CV's are used often and I don't recall seeing any failures. Being 2 piece with dual CV's price is around 1500.It certainly looks nice....but those lobro type joints would worry me too !
Dare I ask what sort of price ? And what sort of power/torque/usage are they rating it to ?
Simple as this, I am not cutting the chassis to make a 1 piece fit. It isnt a case of what could be modified...I see no sensible reason to.Im not familiar with a UK granada, i'd have to see the issue in the shaft tunnel and the suspension travel to see what could be modified to lose that 2 pc.

It's enough reason only if the gains justify the expense and work.Performance is a reason, making it better is another. Performance is why you started playing with it and modifying it in the 1st place.
Same as why the OP asked this question.
Every car and truck i have converted from multiple piece to singles all got better acceleration and mpg, that's enough reason isn't it. Losing the hanger bearing that simply doesn't last long under hard acceleration and it's drag is another reason.
Most require a very slight modification.
A live axle doesn't necessarily have tons of movement, that's all dependent on the suspension, plenty of cars with live axles that have hardly any movement.
