Though what is funny, is many of the big time companies that make a 3.5" they are rated to hold a higher horsepower rating than the steeda. A 4" driveshaft. I think I remember a debate coming up that the american muscle one was made by steeda, so probably the same.

Either way they hold a much higher horsepower than many of us will achieve. But if I can go with a 3.5" shaft and have it hold better than the 4" on the market. Done.

So assuming all drive shafts were created equal I would agree with you, this doesn't seem to be the case.
You don't have to agree for me to be right, I'm simply stating facts. Like I said wall thickness can be used to compensate for a smaller diameter. That's all I'm saying. I have a DSS 3.5" I'm not saying one is better than the other. But just because the 4" shafts are made by companies you overlook does not mean they are not made. Btw some of the driveshafts DSS makes are tapered as well

What? I think you misread what I said. I said I was wrong on the 4" part for the GT. It was companies I hadn't looked at so I didn't realize they made a 4". Most of the companies people actually seem to always buy from make a 3.5"

My point was that looking at the specs on some of the 4" drive shafts they are rated to handle less power than the 3.5" shafts are. Tapered or not. So my point was I wouldn't assume a 4" shaft because it is bigger will hold up better than a 3.5" shaft will because that doesn't seem to be the case.
