Hi All, getting ready to install new motor mounts for the car. When lining up the motor and trans to the rear yoke, do I center the motor in the car and have the driveshaft angle to the rr or should I move the motor over to go straight to the 9in yoke. Thanks, Race

Which ever one will get your left side percent correct. There is a proper drive shaft u joint phasing that prevent's vibration but it seems it dosesn't really concern the dirt car much.

I would agree, just make sure the car will not get in any binds. Take a 4 link modified, it may start out in line, but when it gets hikedup then its going way out of line. Just make sure it wont bind anywhere.
