Talking 2010 Camaro BMR Driveshaft Safety Loop pics!!!

Here are some pics of our NHRA legal 2010 Camaro Driveshaft loop. This is a safety item that we really recomend for anybody who is taking their car out to the dragstrip. This item can immensly reduce the amount of damage done to the car from a broken driveshaft. Also this item is required for any car running a slick that is 13.99 or faster or 11.99 or faster with street tires. I know our local NHRA track really tries to make us have one on cars that are 13.99 and faster with drag radials. Here is a insert from the actual NHRA rula book.

2:4 DRIVELINE
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 driver’s body must be completely enclosed in 1/8-inchminimum-
thickness steel plate, securely mounted to the frame or
frame structure.

This is a super easy install, you don't have to drop the exhaust or the driveshaft. Install times on the driveshaft safety loop is about an hour in your driveway and 30 minutes on a lift. Not quite sure on pricing and availability yet but that will come in the very near future. Let me know if you guys have any questions.

We could have used that before our customer gernaded his fuel tanks! Serious business to you guys out there drag racing, this was just a cam only car.

The rear of the factory driveshaft is very weak, and common under wheel hop or hard launching to sheer.

Looks good!

Brandon, it is a huge help when driveshafts break. Most people don't realize they need one till they are kicked out of their local dragstrip or break a driveshaft and do a considerable amount of damage. No matter how fast your car is or what time they run I recommend these safety loops to anyone who races or drive their car very spiritedly.

Ironically enough you couldnt be more correct!

Got a call last night on my blackberry,

client at the track "uh my car wont move and made a loud thwacking sound in the floor boards"

Me " you just broke your driveshaft"

Client " no way"

Me "Crawl underneath and look by the rear diff"

Client " Sure as shit it, and my heat shields and fuel tank look bad"

Me "we will get it figured out, but we HAVE to put a loop on the car now like I mentioned"

Client "absolutely" ...

This car made 380 wheel..., so it can happen to anyone racing!

Regards

IPS Brandon-- I don't think that the BMR loop will help in your customer's situation. The BMR loop is around the front of the driveline.
Do they have a loop for the rear of the driveline available? That seems to be what is breaking the most.

We actually have one in the works right know. The one in thread makes the car NHRA legal, but only helps if the front half of the driveshaft breaks. I hope to have some pics of our rear driveshaft safety loop within the next few weeks.

Thanks, BMR. Post pics and prices when you have both available.
Even though NHRA doesn't require a rear loop, that's the one that I think we really need. Destroying the fuel tanks is really scarey. That would be nasty to set on fire.

A question on the front loop, by the pics it looks like the loop covers the
tranny mount holes on the crossmember?

I will get some pricing and install pics. The front loop is installed between the transmission crossmember and the transmission mount. That is why we have the shims with the the loop.

The rear shaft breaking should be a pretty large concern with the 2010 guys and we are working hard to get something to help with this. It shouldn't be long before we have something ready for you guys.

IPS, what are these guys breaking? The rubber piece, or what? Do you

BMR, how do you bolt the transmission mount back to the crossmember with
the holes blocked off by the loop?

The holes don't get blocked by the loop, there are holes in the loop for it to get sandwiched betwen the transmission mount and the crossmember. The reason they are blocked by the bolts there is to just show how it mounts to the crossmember. I will get you guys an install picture the begining of next week.

The rear loop is not finished as of yet, there is quit a bit of difficulty in making a piece like this and getting it mounted to the chassis. As soon as I get word that it is done I will let you guys know and get you some pics.
