looks pretty sweet!
what 1/4 mile time do you have to beat to require one?
does it mount up where the tranny crossmember does?
Here is the actual exert out of the NHRA rule book:
In place of a crossmember, in the vicinity of the front universal
joint, all RWD cars running 13.99 or quicker with slicks and 11.49
or quicker with street tires must have a retainer loop 360 degrees
of enclosure, 1/4-inch minimum thickness and 2 inches wide, or
7/8-inch x .065-inch welded steel tubing, securely mounted and
located within 6 inches of the front universal joint for support of the
driveshaft in event of U-joint failure. Open drivelines passing any
part of the driverís body must be completely enclosed in 1/8-inchminimum-
thickness steel plate, securely mounted to the frame or
We generally recommend them to anyone running 13.99 or quicker with any type of tire on the car. The driveshaft safety loop in one of those pieces people don't realize they need till they break a driveshaft or get booted off of the track. It is a good piece to have for the safety and peace of mind alone. We are currently in the designing stages of our rear driveshaft safety loop which will be available in future. The loop itself mounts in between the transmission mount and the crossmember and also uses to hole drilled into the back of the transmission crossmember. It is a super easy install, that wont take longer than an hour or two to install.
