Hiya all - has anyone got a picture of the guards you use in case your propshaft breaks ? how do you do them for Formula ?

Thanks

looks a bit short to me. I'd rather have a hoop a good bit behind the U-joint. Doesn't have to be very strong I think, nothing much will happen as long as the shaft does not fly 90 degrees out sideways, that's when the bad stuff happens.

Thanks Amund - I was looking for some idea to come off the chassis - some kind of a bolted ring - anymore pics ??
