GForce is proud to be a part of an incredible build spearheaded by Ken Bjonnes and Palm Beach Dyno that put the first 6R80 S550 Mustang into the 7’s. This car features a complete GForce 9″ IRS Package including axles and a 4″ aluminum driveshaft. Watch this incredible video here and stay tuned for more details about this build.
2018 Mustangs started hitting dealer showrooms just within the last couple months, but have already found their way to track. The numbers are just as good as everyone hoped and exceeding expectations. This version of the s550 brings several new performance features, none more anticipated than the all new 10-speed automatic transmission. GForce is proud to release our new 1-piece aluminum driveshaft for the 2018 Auto Mustangs. Much like all GForce Engineering driveshafts, this 3.5″ aluminum driveshaft is high-speed balanced, features solid-core u-joints and is a direct bolt-in for factory replacement upgrade.
In addition to the 2018 Auto Mustangs, GForce offers driveshafts upgrades for the 2015-2017 Automatic (6R80), 2015-2018 Manual (MT-82) as well as bolt-in half-shaft upgrades for the entire s550 platform. Take a look at the links below for everything GForce offers for the S550 Mustang.
November, 2017 – Career long industry members and current GForce Performance Engineering management, Bob Engel and Jesse Powell, have purchased GForce from private equity that has held the company’s stake for the last several years. GForce Performance Engineering, a Wichita, Kansas based company focuses on driveline upgrades for performance vehicles and is positioned as an industry leader in independent rear suspension components.
“Obviously, we are extremely excited about the acquisition,” says Jesse Powell, President at GForce. “We feel by unifying management and ownership with a common vision, the company will really hit its stride and continue the growth and success we’ve been working towards.”
Jesse Powell began his career at Aeromotive Fuel Systems as marketing and communications director. After Aeromotive, he did a brief stint with The Enthusiast Network before leaving to step in as President of GForce. Bob Engel began his career in the automotive industry at Auto Meter. After many years and working his way up the ladder, he left to work as a manufacturers rep for Kunzman and Associates only to eventually pursue his passion in performance tuning. For the last two years, GForce has been under the direction of Powell and Engel and seen significant growth.
“GForce has a unique opportunity in today’s market,” adds Bob Engel, Vice-President and partner. “The product is extremely relevant and the manufacturing process is one that GForce has worked hard to develop. This, coupled with some of the processes and procedures we have added over the last couple years, has produced some of best driveline parts on the market.”
GForce Engineering was founded in the mid 90’s by aerospace engineer and long-time drag racer, Chris Nichols. The company saw several iterations from a local speed shop to a fabrication and machine shop. In 2009, Nichols reimagined GForce Engineering again as a true manufacturer and quickly found his place in the industry as a manufacturer of performance CV axles, driveshafts and driveline components, specializing in IRS and AWD performance vehicles. Nichols continues his interest in the company as the lead engineer with a focus on new product development and R & D.
“Bob, Chris and I feel that in today’s performance marketplace, real innovation will come from manufacturers that are led by enthusiasts with a passion for this industry. That’s why we are investing so much into new products and new procedures with a goal to produce better products at a better price for our customers,” says Powell.
It was only a matter of time before the crew over at Fireball, out of Oklahoma City, finally broke into the 8s with their monster Fireball 900 Camaro. In case you are out of the loop, when we last checked in with the Fireball gang, their Camaro was consistently hitting 9-flats in the quarter, but an 8-second slip remained elusive. And now they’ve finally done it, becoming not only the first sixth-gen into the 8s, but the quickest Gen V LT-powered car of all time.
Now, keep in mind that this car is considered a “production” car. While it may have some aftermarket tweaking–and by some we mean a lot–it is still available from a Chevrolet dealership and carries a warranty. You can even go buy your very own right now for just $90,000–eat your heart out Demon. And if that doesn’t fit the bill for production, we don’t know what to tell you. Regardless of whether you think it fits the bill of production, we can all agree that it is one badass machine.

Our good friends and B&R Performance and Fireball Camaro set the record as the fastest LT powered car ever by dipping down into the 8’s and rolling with GForce products.
GForce Engineeing is proud to announce the release of driveline upgrades for the 2015+ Hellcat, SRT and Scat Pack Charger and Challenger. All new engineered 4.0” aluminum driveshafts, complete CV Half Shaft Axle upgrades and the complete 9” IRS kit.
Dodge redefined their lineup with the refresh in 2015 and release of the 707hp Hellcat Charger and Challenger. Just as they went back to the drawing board with these cars, we did the same; bringing to market driveline packages and options to handle the power and abuse these cars are more than capable. We started with the new 4.0” aluminum, 1-piece driveshafts. Stronger and lighter than anything else on the market, these shafts are bolt-in, require no modifications and are high-speed balanced for a precision finish and reduction in NVH, which these cars be prone to.
In addition we released all new axles. Much like all GForce Outlaw half shafts, the new Mopar axles carry the LIFETIME WARRANTY expected from GForce Engineering. They are also the only axles available that feature one-piece CNC machined inner and outer stubs and oversized 31-spline axle bars for unparalleled strength and durability. Also bolt-in requiring no modifications or fabrication.
For the guys taking their Hellcat, SRT or Scat Pack to the next level, we now offer complete bolt-in 9” IRS Kits. Just like all GForce 9” Kits, these new Mopar kits feature a fabricated one-piece housing, 35 spline inners stubs, one-piece billet outer stubs, outlaw axles, Strange Engineering 3rd member with your choice of gears and a new 4.0” aluminum driveshaft. It is a complete IRS package that replaces your stock driveline from the transmission back. Bolt-in, no fabrication or welding required and capable for supporting 1500-2000 horsepower!
GForce Engineering is your go to for Mopar driveline components. From entry level options for those with mild upgrades to complete packages for the cars big power and even bigger goals.

GForce Engineering is proud to partner with S & M Performance on their 2015 Challenger SRT. With a little love and a set of Outlaw Axles, S & M broke the current non-power adder record by almost 2 tenths, going 11.3.

Stopping The Hop: Stronger axles can help your new Camaro survive the punishment of big power and hard launches. Adding horsepower to your new Camaro is the fastest way to expose a weak link. Now, blaming GM for a part breaking because you added more power just isn’t fair. After all, they built the Camaro’s drivetrain and other systems to hold up to the power output of a stock LS3 (or L99) and it’s not their fault that some of us feel the need to add hundreds of additional horsepower in a never ending quest to go faster.
