Default Aluminum DriveShaft

is there a review on different aluminum driveshafts? I have seen two of them : Steeda and driveshaft shop.
How is their reliability compare with the stock ones.
While we are at it, where is carbon fiber one stands? Do they worth the extra cost compare with the Aluminum ones?

what are you looking to do? The Mustang is heavy enough where the rotating mass/inertia of the driveshaft is pretty much lost in the noise.

It always sounds good to drop few lbs and free up few ponies which may translate to better time at the track too. Possible increase in day to day MPG is added benefit. Besides of the creating a foundation (slowly though) for future add ons.

I thought aluminum DS are very popular mod with these cars. I just want to know more about the different experiences with different manufacturers since there are so many of them. Some have adapters and some are direct bolt-ons I believe.
