I'll be going with shaft masters when I get mine, I can't justify paying an additional $150 for a different brand DS that's even rates at the same hp

If I was to change the driveshaft,I would get the DSS one.It can
also be used on lowered cars.

Mine is from The Driveshaft Shop. I like the fact that they have the equipment to balance them at high speed. Knowing the damage an unbalanced one can do...that's a no-brainer for me. Better safe than sorry....or dead. The cost is worth it, i'm happy with mine.

Why upgrade driveshaft? Is it only for big hp? Is something wrong with the factory one?

Single piece instead of two piece clunking. A whole lot lighter. 20 some lbs.

Driveshaft shop for sure. Most places balance there drive shafts at around 4000 rpm where DSS balances then all the way to 9000. Plus the fact of not having to change the pinion angle is nice because of their special CV joint. Installing it from what I gather will also eliminate some drone caused by the stock 2 piece not to mention freeing up some HP lost in the stock I'm sure. Oh and as mentioned above the clunking of going from gear to hear will be gone.

Don't forget to get the safety loop!
