this video is what my fabricator uses to show people how driveshafts should work.
Its unreal how many people think that you need to turn your pinion up and then run a shaft without a double cardan at the out put side.
its also kinda mindblowing how the little credit card tooth tapping sound speeds up and slows down when the driveshaft angles are changed.
kinda mindblowing and really illustrates how the trans and pinion need to be aligned.
