Double joint universals have been very popular in RC touring car racing due to its double jointed design. The double joints connecting the axle to prevent the loss of cornering speeds increase the steering drive efficiency in operation. Also reduced butter with increased steering angle when the axle can also be expected to maximize the effectiveness of the front tire grip, essential equipment for any TC racer. If it works in touring cars, then it will also be effective in RC Drift cars.
DCJ’s are good for increasing steering angle, but not as much as new high angle universal driveshafts that have been introduced to the market last year. DCJ’s do offer smoother and more efficient operation than wide angle CVDs.
