As you do, watching YouTube's and this came up. Explaining drive shafts and universal joints. And the importance of having double joints in phase. I never realised all of this. Not sure if this science affects Gs - anyone know?

Re: Drive shafts. Mind blown

.. except the front driveshaft on a W460 is not at 90 degrees to keep the noise down. Forget the details right now but you need to be a few splines out of phase.
