Christ yeh, we use them in the hovercraft fixings because the people that drill the holes for the engine mountings are inept at getting them in line with the lay shaft for the hub for the fan blades, but anyway, yeh, always breaking at 12k rpm! Bloody things!(Original post by Nuffles)
How about worst couplings? I gotta vote for Rubber Doughnut couplings (not sure if that's their proper name). Relying on rubber flexing to allow the joint to bend, but also relying on it being rigid enough to transmit drive? Over thousands of miles? Nice idea there.
A vulcan coupling is very similar to those doughnut things, just much improved!

Stuck a set of -40mm GMAX springs on my Rover 400 and it totally transformed the handling. Of course with stock dampers the handling was nowhere near as good as it could have been but it was a massive improvement over the stock ones. If it's not a relatively expensive car then id suggest fitting them but no lower than -40mm but anybody worth their salt would recommend dampers as well if you can afford them. Mine cost £40 so I wasn't complaining.

Fitted them this afternoon, only got chance to go for a quick drive only to test nothing broke so really haven't tested the handling yet, but they make it a hell of a lot better looking, though it couldn't get much worse.
