aluminum VS steel DS

ok i was lookin at the DSS aluminum and steel drive shafts. I think im gonna go steel breaks tire loose easier and cheap BUT, the aluminum is a lot lighter rev quicker. What do you guys think i know im not the only one whose thought of this.

hmmm i never personally had any contact with this part so i would not be able to give you my opinion on it... i just know it helps reduce flex within the the drive-train . i have read feedback on other sites and it seems to work for some guys and others don't see a difference

it depends on wut type of power your lookin to be runnin on it the steel can handle alot more power than the aluminum but if its less than 600hp id go with the aluminum i think even with the aluminum you would have no problem gettin the wheels loose
