    On fixed yolk t-cases, you can run the driveshaft with the shaft yolk at the t-case side or at the axle side. I've been running mine up at the t-case to keep it clean but noticed recently that many people run them at the axle end. Where do the rest of you run them, anyone with advantages or disadvantages other than the cleanliness. There shouldn't be any vibe difference, right?

    Hey Jeromy, I guess there aren't as many np203's out there as I thought. Well, I flipped it anyhow and no vibes. It does feel like has more axle wrap at take off but I can't think of why it would other than not having the weight from the legnth of the shaft on the pinion... hmm. Did you make it to that MDA run? I missed it. Hoping to hit TDS on the 2nd. Maybe I'll see you there.
