U-joints aren't CV joints

cycleman2, you're right in thinking that the average speeds of the input and output have to be the same. They are almost never exactly the same though. Take a look at the planes defined by A and C,...

that's a fair point

Yeah, the material I've handled was optimized in a way that had it contain as little material as possible (mostly "Aero", with almost no "gel").

We have some aerogel insulation at my place of work. You can hardly feel it as you crush it to oblivion. A helmet made with that stuff might have to be several yards thick. :huh

Another friction solution

I had the same complaint on my Throttlemeister, so I added a strip of that high-friction tape material used to add traction on the edges of stair steps. Solved the problem.

It'll make as much or more difference than adding fog lights.
