Driveshaft question

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone tried to balance their stock driveshaft vs. buying a Mark VIII or aftermarktet one? Any benefits, drawbacks, opinions? I ma going with 3.73s, so eventually I will need to do one or the other. Thanks!

Don't bother balancing the stock shaft. It's not about the balancing. It's about length, diameter, material, construction, rpm's and harmonics.

ever see the effects of high RPMs on imballanced steel? Even worse, higher RPMs on a ballanced steel disc? Quite impressive, 3lb disc at high enough RPMs can put a hand grenade to shame
