Carbon Fiber or Aluminum drive shafts ??

I found a very good story to share about the different driveshaft materials.

Driveshaft Technology And Selecting The Proper Shaft For Your Ride - Dragzine

I thought it was very informative and interesting. I still want a n Aluminum one piece.

My 95 had an aluminum DS, my 98 has one and ANYONE with a S197 with a 2 piece driveshaft should get an aluminum 1 piece. Carbon fiber would be completely overkill unless you are turning some serious RPM and even then.
