Evora CV joint angle. Rally spec!

So apologies if this question has been asked before

I'm working up the feasibility of setting up an Evora for ARA rally.

Done laughing yet? I'll give you a minute.

So the main thing that I need to address is suspension and ride height. Because I want to keep the suspension geometry kosher, I'm basically considering fabricating control arm drop brackets that bring everything down about 2 inches. In the front, I think this should work beautifully but in the rear I have my concerns, namely the extra angle put on the CV joints. If worst comes to worst I will look into ways of dropping the entire engine and transmission by the same amount, but for obvious reasons I'd like to leave it be. I'd like some opinions on how well I can expect the CV joints to hold up in this situation. Anyone have any educated guesses on this situation? Thanks very much!
