How much torque can 1310 U Joint handle?

According to Spicer, the 1310 joint is rated at 400 lb-ft of continuous torque (down the track) and 800 lb-ft of short-term torque (launch at the line). The 1330 has the same size caps as the 1310, but the U-joint cross is the same size as a 1350.

How much drive shaft angle is too much?

Ideally, both driveshaft-operating angles will be 1 to 3 degrees. Anything over 3 degrees at the rear axle will shorten your universal joint’s life and could create vibration. If your angle is larger than 3 degrees, you must make sure not to exceed max driveshaft RPM as shown on this Spicer table.
