tailshaft loops

Are there any specific advantages to using a pre-made tialshaft loop, are they "endorsed" by certain racing authorities or rated specifically.

I don't want to pay 100$++ for 2$ worth of steel, do I need a brand name loop to drag race or will any type of loop do???

Re: tailshaft loops

You can make your own as long as it is made from 50mm x 6mm steel i believe is the spec.

Re: tailshaft loops

I was reading somewhere tailshaft loops are not supposed to be installed less than 150mm back from the front yoke? something to do with r/w, adr etc?? Where have/are you guys mounted yours?

I'm putting mine in the new chassis. I honestly can't remember where I had it fitted or how far back it was in the old chassis. It's been awhile.

Re: tailshaft loops

I'm still trying to find out some facts but my dad as a licensed r/w tester etc is being useless as he sometimes is. Just doesn't want to look it up in his books.

[edit] I want to fit mine today. So hopefully I can find some more info. As I can't remember where I saw the 150mm bit. Might have been in engineers info?
