Looking at doing a Formula Toy buggy, I already have a front FZJ80 elocker axle mounted in the 4runner chassis, I want the rear to match(1993-1997 FZJ80 -- elocker, full float, and disc brakes, and the same wms-wms to match the front) The advice I am looking for is... I am using mini truck drivetrain/frame.. which in turn means that my rear driveshaft will be centrally located, however the rear FZ-80 axle is offset(I have seen a lot of buggies that have the rear diff located at either the far left, or far right for ground clearance issues), so I would assume that with just a LITTLE offset that I wont have any crazy u-joint vibration/premature wear with speeds less than maybe 35 on a flat trail?, or are the guys that are running the crazy offset diffs running a special type of u-joint? I plan on running factory mini toy driveshafts/u-joints...
