The Theory is;
Shaft drive is better for spec classes as it provides direct torque and efficiency gains, and
Belt drive is better for modified classes as it has some elasticity from the belts to absorb the HP shock from mod motors.
Whether you buy in to this theory is up to you to decide...
(But I've seen both driivetrains just as quick as each other)
