The NHRA wouldn't be very happy with that. Is there any way to move the fuel cell away from the drive shaft? If you break a u joint you are going to scatter fuel everywhere. The Exporer rear end has a lot of pinion offset. Maybe you should have one end of the housing shortened to get the pinion centered and that would move the pinion away from the fuel cell. I know that's not a cheap or easy fix, but it might be the best thing to do.
