    Review & Installation Video

    Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com. Here with this Drive Shaft Safety Loop from BMR for all 2011 to 2014 GT and V6s and all 2012 to 2013 Boss Mustangs. The BMR Drive Shaft Safety Loop is going to be for the Mustang owners out there that are doing some racing or launches and want to keep things safe. If you're drag racing your Mustang, I'm sure that you already know that there's a certain point where you need the drive shaft safety loop in order to pass tech, and the BMR Front Loop here is NHRA legal. If you don't already know, the whole idea of a drive shaft safety loop like this one here is to contain the drive shaft and keep it in place in the event of a u-joint or a drive shaft failure. If your drive shaft or u-joint fail and you don't have a loop to catch it, it's going to hit the ground which can be a scary event. It can even flip the car over. The NHRA requires the use of a drive shaft safety loop if your car is running faster than a 13.99 with slicks or an 11.49 on a street tire in the quarter mile. So there are a few different options when it comes to a loop, but the BMR here is made from a quarter inch thick steel plate. Now you can see the thickness of it right here. This is definitely a solid piece, and then it's coated with a black hammer tone powder. And it's even designed to be an easy bolt on that uses the existing mounting holes, so there's no drilling or welding required. And it's going to fit both manual and automatic cars. The only thing it's not going to fit is the GT500 model. And there are some different options out there as far as the safety loop goes. Lakewood and JPC Racing have some offerings, but they're going to cost more than the BMR option here. The only thing I will say about this loop is that it may require some shimming if you're using an aftermarket one piece drive shaft. The loop is a closed fit for safety over the factory drive shaft. So just be mindful of that. Now we are going to install this loop with an aluminum one piece drive shaft so you can see what I'm talking about. As far as price, you're going to be looking at spending a little over $100 for the BMR here. But like I said, there are some other options like Lakewood and JPC, but those are more expensive. And the BMR does have a rear tunnel brace for the safety loop which is a little bit different design than this if you want to check that out, too. So the install here is really pretty easy. I'm going to call it a one out of three wrenches on the scale, and should take about an hour or two to get everything wrapped up and ready to go. As far as tools, you're looking at needing a few sockets, a three-eighths drive ratchet or impact, and a nine-sixteenths wrench. As usual, a lift is really going to make things easier here. If you've got some jack stands, those will work, too. And one last thing you'll need a torque wrench. You don't want to be doing this thing without torqueing things down properly. Once the car is up and supported on a lift or jack stands, you're going to want to support the trans with a jack so you can loosen the two trans mounting nuts and remove the four cross member bolts so you can drop the cross member. Insert the provided trans mount spacer into the cross member, and hold the BMR Drive Shaft Loop mounting plate and OE cross member up into place for the BMR Drive Shaft Loop mounting plate. Position between OE cross member and the floor pan. Insert the provided bolts and washers, then torque to 85 foot pounds. After that you can torque down your trans mounts and install the drive shaft safety loop. It goes over the smaller portion of the drive shaft, and this is where you might need to shim the loop so you can fit it over an aluminum one piece drive shaft. You can see how we did it here. The three-eighths bolts are then to be torqued to 40 foot pounds, and then you're ready to go. Wrapping things up here, a drive shaft safety loop is a necessary safety device if you plan on hitting the drag strip, and it can bring a lot of peace of mind if you're planning on some hard launches. BMR's Front Safety Loop is a quarter inch thick and will work with both a factory and an aftermarket drive shaft. It's easy to install, and it's also on the less expensive side of the offerings. And you can check it out more online right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Added Safety. This BMR Front Driveshaft Safety Loop is NHRA legal to safely contain your Mustangs drive shaft in place in the event of a U-joint or driveshaft failure that could other wise cause your pony to flip over. The NHRA requires the use of a driveshaft safety loop on vehicles running 13.99 on slicks and 11.49 on street tires in the quarter mile.

    Quality Construction. Made in the USA from 1/4" steel plate for strength this front Safety Loop is then completed with a long-lasting black hammer-tone powdercoat finish, and is designed to be an easy bolt-on using existing mounting holes, no welding or drilling is required.

    Application. The BMR Suspension Front Driveshaft Safety Loop is designed to fit both manual and automatic 2011 to 2014 V6 and GT Mustangs. Will not fit Shelby GT500 models.

    Technical Note. May require drive shaft loop shimming when using aftermarket one-piece drive shafts.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    I have an MGW Shifter will this bracket interfere?

    • We have not tested the BMR Front Driveshaft Safety Loop with the MGW shifter, as we do not offer this shifter and have no way to test it.

    My car currently has about 700WHP. I may be upgrading my transmission from the MT-82 to a TR-56 magnum. Because this unit bolts to the cross-member and a different cross-member and driveshaft would be used for the TR-56 Would this unit still work?

    • The BMR Front Driveshaft Safety Loop is designed specifically for the OEM MT82 and crossmember, and would not fit properly with a T56 conversion.

    Helpful (0)

    If the driveshaft somehow fell, wouldn't the mid pipes hold them?

    • The BMR Front Driveshaft Safety Loop is designed to withstand a high speed failure. The mid pipes may not be able to withstand the force of a drive shaft with high rotational speed.

    I have an aftermarket aluminum one piece driveshaft. Will this safety loop allow clearance for an aluminum driveshaft? Thank You

    • The BMR Front Driveshaft Safety Loop (11-14 GT, V6) will allow clearance for the aluminum one-piece driveshaft as the aluminum driveshaft will be thinner than the stock two-piece driveshaft.

    Helpful (0)

    Do you need the rear safety loop too? I'm planning on getting an Aluminum DS but I would like to know if I need both front and rear safety loops. Can I just use one? Do I need one at all?

    • NHRA rulebook: "For all full-bodied and open-bodied cars running between 7.50 (*4.50) and 13.99 (*8.59) in place of a crossmember located behind but within 6 inches of the center of the front universal joint: a front driveshaft loop is required on all cars, except vehicles running 11.49 (*7.35) seconds or slower equipped with street tires." So unless your Mustang is running twin turbo with a stripped chassis and no doors or roof, you only need the front.

      Nice product, easy install

      This is a great product at a great price. The fit was perfect and the install was a breeze. Takes about an hour from start to finish. At my track these are mandatory for any car running slicks and to be honest its just a good safety upgrade for anyone. It does not have the BMR logo cut into it which is fine as that just makes it stronger.

      Very easy to instal took about 30 mins. Hardware was great feels very sturdy. It's a peace at mind knowing I won't have my driveshaft hit the floor on a hard laugh and send me flying.

      Nicely Made

      The piece was quality. It comes with clear directions and correct fasteners. I have had thinner gauge loops on other cars, but this thing should be able to stop any driveshaft. Heavy duty, but kind of heavy. Really quick install once you get the car safely in the air.

      BMR driveshaft loop.

      I figured this was a good idea because I have an aluminum driveshaft. It fit perfectly and cleared my DSS driveshaft without any problems. My only complaint would be that I ordered Hammertone and received red. Oh well you can’t see it unless you’re under the car anyway.

      Quality Build

      The product install was easy. I ran into one issue. I run a STEEDA one piece aluminum drive shaft. The driveshaft has a rubber boot around the slip yoke which comes into contact with the BMR driveshaft safety loop even when using the supplied washers to increase space. I had to purchase 4 longer bolts and thick spacers to make it work.

      BMR DS Loop

      This was a very simple upgrade. The directions are nearly flawless. You will see your 2 lower outside bolts you'll need a wrench but they come off pretty easy. The only thing the install doesn't tell you is the new bolts are 19mm and not 18mm so you will need a 19mm socket and wrench to install the bolts. The easiest thing to do is place the loop in place, and put the BMR part on, and allow it to hang on top of the exhaust. After that the brace and the spacer are really simple to bolt up, and aligning the 4 bolts is easy.
