Thread: Drive-shaft loop

  1. #1

    Default Drive-shaft loop

    Where can I learn more about drive-shaft loop requirements? I've been searching the web but there is nothing that says about how many you need the spacing between each one.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Check out drag-racing websites and forums. I forget the times but it's like 13.99 and faster must have loops installed to pass NHRA tech inspections.

    Don't know if there is a "real" spec on them though. I've seen some that were no more than a looped piece of threaded rod welded to the frame. YUCK !

    You need a loop on the front of every section of drive shaft so that if ujoint breaks the shaft can not hit pavement and get driven into the floor of the car.

    Got it. Thanks everyone. I did find some universal ones for $20 on Jegs. I bet I could make one myself but for $20...
