Default Driveshaft angle?

I have a scx10 TR that is heavily moddified. I just installed a Hot Racing dig unit and now my rear driveshaft angle is to great. I am running the Jun Fac metal shafts. I'm not sure if I can adjust the links enough, to turn the pinion angle, or did I do something wrong on the install of the dig. I disconnected the rear shocks and that allows the shaft to line up at full stuff but thats not going to work for me. Any ideas?

Pics would help, if you can't adjust your link enough to raise the angle then you might have to move the trans forward a bit to compensate.

Find the happy medium between the front drive shafts and the rear and while keeping your wheelbase the same.

its kind of a love hate thing sometimes you have to sacrifice some looks for performance

do you have a 4 link or a 3 link in the rear? I've had the same problem when i was trying to shorten my wheelbase and i ended up swapping out the upper links to bring the driveshaft in line.

ps. I used two separate links for my upper link

I have the 4 link in the rear. I'm wondering if it can even be done with the shorter wheel base. JS, do you also have dig?

negative on the dig. Pic would help so I can see how much of an angle you got going on. I have my axle output almost lined up with the driveline, used two links 30mm and 60mm. I believe you can go as short as 50mm from what Axial supplies.

I will try to get some pics this evening if I can't get the pinion angle to fix the problem.
