Depends on what your going to do... The ball and claw drum is far from desired from a wheeling stand point. It certainly does the job but for moderate wheeling you'll want discs with birfs. From a resto standpoing it'll be desired to stick with original. Light wheeling it'll be fine.

All depends on where you want to end up...

I got pretty rough on some ball and claw and they held up fine. I would deffend the drums even more. I was all ready to make that my first mod but the trail I was running had a water crossing followed by a steep bank and I never had an issue with the drums not stopping me on a dime! If you can though I would swap those axels with birfs, with 35s you'll have issues just noting that with 31s I was fine.
