F'ed up U-joint (Undercar Vid)

So I have been having this issue with a vibration coming from the rear of my car. Long story short, these videos, of my webcam attached to the bottom of my car, helped us figure out where it was coming from. I decided to upload them, for your entertainment?

WARNING

Engine noise + wind noise = loud
Solution: Lower your volume.





The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.

damn that is cool, not the f'ed up U-Joint. The camera thing, You could mount one on the side with magnetsand thin cloth(protect paint) or in the grille I'm thinking I might try the magnet thing hooked to a laptop, It would be prefect to identify stuff like that U Joint but yeah that is interesting about the U Joint. Hope you get that fixed soon. My toyota 4X4 did that get it done before it gets worse. But you probably already know that.

Yeah, I had to create a heat shield for the wire (out of aluminum foil), and mount it (using duct tape of course). Seeing as duct tape doesn't really stick to the bottom of cars, I made a structure where it only stuck to itself. I wish I had taken a picture...
