Gotcha. What angle do you have at the middle joint (in between the front and rear drive shaft? Theoretically, you want around zero at the transmission to the first shaft and and then 3 or less at the between the first shaft to the second shaft and the opposite from the second shaft to the differential. That's what the guy at the drive line shop told me anyway. My 2 rear angles were good but my angle at the transmission was way out. The only way to make it correct was to raise the transmission (low transmission hump). Unfortunately there wasn't any room to do that. So the only option at that point was the double CARDAN joint. It allows for the angles to be off and helps prevent vibrations. Hope this was somewhat clear. Let me know if you have any other questions.

So far so good! I haven't put a lot of miles on it yet as I'm still data-logging and playing with the tune, but the drive train seems pretty smooth. I do need some new shocks and will be purchasing some Ridetech HQs pretty soon.
