Critical Speed & Your Driveshaft

Critical speed is the rpm at which the driveshaft becomes unstable. All driveshafts have a critical speed; it depends on the length and diameter. Securing a more favorable critical speed can be achieved by changing any of several driveshaft variables. They include the length, tube diameter, materials used to build and the RPM of the driveshaft.
