I need to get my driveshaft loop installed by Thursday. Where is the ideal location for it? I have heard that you want it to be @ 18 inches from the back of the transmission. Is this correct?

I am using the Summit universal kit, btw.

Thanks!
Tom

I was just looking at this in the rulebook the other day. I'm pretty sure it says within 8" of the front u-joint, but I think I've seen some tracks that say within 6" of the front u-joint.

Ok, Thanks for the replies guys!

I found the answer- it is within 6 inches.

Here is a link to the NHRA rulebook:
