Bad Vibrations!!!!

Hey all.

I went to the drags the other day and found that my car makes a ****ing horrible vibration when i get to about 140-150km.

once i get below 120 again its fine??
i got my wheels n tyers balanced not long ago, i was thinking it might be my drive shaft???
It sounds like there is a heli over the top of me or somthing?

Re: Bad Vibrations!!!!

Driveshaft sounds like a start. Nothing through the steering?

Re: Bad Vibrations!!!!

I agree tailshaft, may want to get a tail shaft loop, so you dont catapult yourself if it lets go :0)

The universals may just be worrn out also.

A loop around the tailshaft to catch it and hold it off the road in case of fron uni joint disintegration or the tailshaft snapping.

Re: Bad Vibrations!!!!

Re: Bad Vibrations!!!!

i had a bit of same problem before it was the clutch ....although it wasn't slipping it wore out unevenly?!!? but it was only from 4500 rpm upwards ... i got a daikin or whatever they are called and it fixed the problem but it did shudder and make the heli noise
