power output modifications become more common on the 6.7L Dodge,
Ram along with the ability of the ATS-built transmission to
support increased torque, the input shaft of the 68RFE Transmission
has become a weak link. Horsepower is now easily modified in
the engine and upgrades such as the Co-Pilot Controller allow
for increased clamping-control of the clutch packs inside the
transmission. This means that torque is now transferred to the
transmissions input shaft and can lead to breakage during heaving
towing or aggressive take-off.
To avoid breakage
ATS has released a vacuum-melted 300M chromoly steel version
of the input shaft. This 300M super alloy material is an ultra-high-strength
metal which supports vastly more power than the original or
OEM input shaft. This American-made material is used in mission-critical
applications such as aircraft landing gear, and while being
more costly than imported variants, offers the best strength
and durability available.
ATS provides this
billet shaft with an unmatched production process where inputs
are first machined,then splined and heat treated. ATS furthers
quality by executing a finish machining process which ensures
clean fitment and improved fatigue resistance. Engineers at
ATS spent great amounts of time by first designing and then
testing the aspects of this new shaft in a computer-aided-design
system, which allowed for modeling and material strength analysis.
When it comes to
input shaft selection and aftermarket transmission choices,
ATS presents the best option for uncompromised quality and
durability through superior engineering.
RETURN POLICY: ATS requires a 25% restocking fee on
any returned item. This is something at Thoroughbred Diesel
we have no control over but ATS enforces everyone to charge
a 25% restocking fee on any return and we like to be up front
