Out of balance drive shaft? Kind of odd...a drive shaft isn't that high tech. Ford is infamous for their 3.8L V6 used in the early 90s in the Taurus and Windstar - someone thought it would be good to use a cast iron block and aluminum heads, sadly the differing expansion rates spelled disaster.

I did once split a bell housing on a chrysler 907 tranny at about 100mph one dark night. They were known for being suspect, like most chrysler trannies (not trying to start anything).
