its a little louder due to the harmonics of it. its a little bigger and a decent amount lighter. the acceleration is a little better as well. i would reccomend it

ive heard of peoples shafts breaking and their car getting tossed because the shaft would hit the ground and launch the car....this would be the only problem with having an alum. i say u go the distance and get a carbon fiber due to less wieght, and safety

I think you need to be making some serious hp and launching really hard to break the driveshaft. I have one on mine, my buddy has one on his making 417rwhp, another on a cobra making 600hp and yet another making about 350hp. None of us has broken one.

Installing a Lakewood Driveshaft Safety Loop is a good idea regardless of what kinda shaft you're running. Especially if you plan to drag race. Especially even more if you plan to go to the track with drag slicks:winks

usually people install the aluminum FMS driveshaft after installing rear gears because the car will pick up some slight vibes. The driveshaft cures it right up!

the FMS driveshaft is twice as strong as stock. if you ever held one in ur hand, u would relize that its hard to break
