Automotive tire Road surface Asphalt Grey Gas

Now that the Model 3 drive unit drive shaft adapter is done, my next step is to tack weld 2” O.D. driveshaft tubing between the adapter and the 1310 double cardan cv joint. I plan to mock up the drive shaft and make sure everything fits properly throughout the suspension travel range before final welding.

I'm not sure you can mix a two way u-joint and a three way CV joint on the same shaft.

I'll let the gearheads weigh in on this, but it seems like a vibration nightmare in the works to me.

It's a cats and dogs sleeping together feeling, nothing based on facts.

Looking good!
I have a wrecked model 3 and am thinking of the same setup in a Scout.
Zero ev gearset likely with limited slip and maybe traction control later on to help. I probably wouldn't be leaving the gravel roads though.

What motor control will you be using?
