FYI, I recently tried to buy a Protahne Six-Shooter coupler to inspect it and see if I wanted to use it instead to the DSS poly coupler and was informed by the vendor that they have stopped selling the Six-Shooter while the manufacturer redesigns it before resuming production. Apparently, they recognize there is an issue with the current design.

Just replaced mine with billet out back and DSS poly out front, glad I did as my couplers were toast, I woulda been surprised if it could have taken one more hard launch. Zero vibrations.

Man I hope my six shooters hold up. I don't want to pull the drive train again. There were mixed emotions about them when I bought them, but there were the only ones who had them in stock. Pulling them off the market is not a good sign for me lol.

How did you like that setup? I have two aluminums in and it starts to vibrate after 10mins of driving. I'm assuming it expands causing vibrations. I plan on doing dss up front amd leave the back aluminum.
