One of the dangers in reading other people’s build blogs and general forum chatter, is that one can very easily end up spending way more than was originally budgeted. ?Haha, he said the ‘B’ word!
On this occasion it was well spent I believe. ?There are anecdotal stories, which I have no doubt are true, of Cobras that have had failed driveshafts. ?With the driveshaft revolving at high speed less than a foot from the occupants’ hips, it can very quickly make shredded metal and minced meat of anything in its path if it fails. ?So, a heavy duty driveshaft safety loop was ordered and installed. ?It’ll never be visible unless viewing from under the car, but I’ll know it’s there.
