Propshafts

Birfield type cV joints have been used in some car applications where the operating angles are quite gentle, but apparently have a tendency to overheat in high angle applications at propshaft speeds that on a LandRover can be around 3 1/2 times faster than halfshaft speeds. Twin UJ (double Hooke) type cv joints are heavy and don't particularly like high angularity at high RPM either because the equalising ball and socket has to work hard under a poor lubrication environment.
