this set up is probably the weak link of any corvette. most people who are going to race them will swap out the whole rear end for something more serviceable.
the bonus of these rear ends is that you will almost never experience wheel spin with them.and oh yeah, 4 wheel disc brakes.mike
I don't really see where you are going about the drive train. Becauase it is independent, is why it needs all the joints. I think it's a fine setup.
