You want the earlier one. As far as I know, the newer one has a metal lip that interferes with the metal lip on the stub shafts. Its meant for one piece axles that have no lip.

This is the first I've heard about both being available.

weight, exhaust clearance, and you loose a man made possibility of a failure point? That's all I can think of.

You can trim the metal lip off easily with tin snips. It's just there to keep dirt out.
