My car shakes pretty violently anytime I am accelerating and get close to the 40mph mark. It seems to be less violent after I exceed 50mph and seems to only happen when I am accelerating. What could this be?

    If the car's engine runs and idles smoothly then I would look at your inner CV joints.
