drive shaft is less rotating mass and you'd rev up quicker. you wont see much of a difference. hardly worth the money unless there is something wrong with your current one.

you might see a subtle one on how the intial launch is taken but IMO i don't think your going to feel a big difference. I didn't. You won't gain horse power with it either

driveshaft doesn't make hp it reduses rotating mass..and should not be done as initial mod only done when all other ideas are exhausted...when I focused on my rotating mass which was my last ditch effort to reach 11's on a 306 I did aluminum flywheel, driveshaft and better axles and pinion snubber all at once

you are not going to rev a driveshaft quicker because its tied to the wheels! you mean an aluminum FLYWHEEL yes

less rotating mass means you get just slightly more power to the wheels since there is less weight to move
