Jim/Dennis,
Are you guys going right from a slip yoke on the motor  drive shaft to the U-
Joint on the rear-end?  Or do you have an  intermediate carrier bearing in
the driveline?

Mike,
Anchorage,  Ak.

The motor shaft and the pinion shaft _must_ be parallel when
you  are driving the car. They don't have to be coaxial, but they
_must_ be  parallel within a couple of degrees. This is both
up-and-down as well as  side-to-side.

Bingo Bill, you have the right answer, I thought you only knew how to make  
bikes go fast, however one slight error. The two shaft centerlines should  be
parallel ALL the time when viewed from the top and the side.
 
Jim Ludiker.................still the quickest EV behind  
Dennis..............for seven years.

The rear suspension does not move the differential perfectly up and
down. It tilts just a bit, especially with leaf springs under severe
acceleration. Thus, you will get some vibration at times. It is
unavoidable with typical rear suspensions. (You can build a
suspension that works correctly.) Thus, you set up the angles to
minimize the vibration under typical driving conditions.

Hi Bill,The S10 has a coil over ladder rear fully adjustable suspension.With
all the excitement of driving this new truck maybe I missed the vibration but
I will listen more close next time down the track. Dennis Berube

If it is a four-link suspension, then you will be able to set it up perfectly.

Congratulations on some mighty quick runs. Most folks don't do nearly
as well, even after years of work on the car.

Yes! that is why they use four bar equal length on the really hot  cars.
