stock v. Al driveshaft... when do they break?

under what stress are they both rated or what 60's would it take to break them? i know it'd take a lot but with a 5 spd, slicks, and hopefully sometime soon, a power adder, will it still be fine?

i figure i have a lot of other things to worry about but i just want to know for my own sake for later on, thanks.

I have an aluminum driveshaft, holds up fine on my GT, the Cobra that I swapped rear ends with also had an aluminum driveshaft, his was dynoed at 465 rwhp, didn't seem to have any problem with this driveshaft either. You think you will get your V6 over 465 rwhp?

All 03 and 04 cobras have a aluminum DS. Actually the steel DS is wrapped and welded like a toilet paper roll. They break all the time on the track
