This paper presents the feasibility of composite shaft over conventional steel shaft of automobile. In this study, Maruti Omni’s steel shaft is replaced with the glass fiber composite shaft which is designed, analyzed and tested for multiple torque values. Results for FEA Calculation show stress induced on of composite shaft is less compared to the Mild steel shaft. Also the weight reduction of the composite drive shaft to that of conventional shaft is 67 % by numerical method and by experimentally it is 72 %. Finally, results for FEA, Analytical and Experimental Calculation shows stress of composite shaft is lesser than that of conventional steel shaft. Also the weight of the composite drive shaft is less than that for the conventional shaft.
