In the Corvette the diff center was in a fixed location that did not move up and down that way they could offset the pinion location, still the u-joint can only operate out of plane in a single direction that's why front wheel drive cars use constant velocity joints. If you don't believe me mock every thing up before you weld anything and try to spin the driveshaft then you'll see what I'm talking about.
