The weight difference can help or hurt you. In a car making GOOD power, it will help because it is less of a rotational weight. In a lower powered car, the heavier weight of a steel driveshaft can help hit the tires harder. Another advantage of the aluminum is that it absorbs a lot of drivetrain vibration.
That is more the case of a flywheel that will be spinnig BEFORE the car is moving.
Gears should be one of if not the first upgrade. Save the money for the drive shaft for when you are running slicks/drag radials and making more power. There are lots of things i would do befor a d/s when on a budget.
