Default 1.8 aluminum driveshaft

Honestly I don't know the brand it came with the car when I bought I test fit it on the car with no problems it was most definatly lighter than the stocker but the car is DD so don't need it when I could use the $. Will trade for some stuff have a turbo 94 and I could use a SAFC/piggyback also need a rollbar for the car. Looking for $250 cash wise plus shipping/delivery. Can email pics or text them.

Here is a picture I'm open to trades mainly looking for engine, exterior and suspension parts.

Looks like a homebrew type deal. Is it balanced?

I've got an SAFC I'd be willing to trade for it. I can get some pictures of it tonight.

Could you look to see if there are any wieghts welded to it. That should imply it was balanced. I am interested in it.

I really don't NEED the driveshaft, so if miata2fast wants to buy it outright I'll hang back and let him jump on it. Then if you want the SAFC it's still sitting in my extra bedroom.

Well considering what they normally cost else where I still don't think it's that bad.

I just picked up a new driveshaft for my Dart the other day, I am going to go back and ask him how much it would cost to have an aluminum shaft made. My cost was 165 for an all new driveshaft, new tube, yoke, u-joints, painted, and balanced. It makes me wonder. This was steel of course.
