    @commando1 You are correct
    It was Dave who asked how can it get out of whack. So I guess I agree with his comment with an *

    FWIW, I had a driveshaft vibration in my A12 Roadrunner that was driving me nuts. (it's a short drive)

    Turned out that I had twisted the shaft just enough that the U-joints were slightly out of alignment. The local driveshaft shop was supposed to build me a brand new one, but instead they shortened another shaft. It was cheaper and I went for it, but I twisted that one too. Little too much torque... LOL.

    He put on about 250 today, and he's not shy about pushing that pedal down. I was running about 100mph a few times keeping up with him and the whole group.

    This is not the 100 run...

    Get it out and let it stretch it's legs some. I guess the 100 mph will do it.

    Fixed my vibration issue. It was my drive shaft being a little bent. They re-straightend and re-balanced it. Vibration totally went away and is even much quieter at cruising speed.
    Drive Line Angle will drive you crazy
