I guess what I was really trying to ask was: Does a 25.1 require a full length footbar?
I have a car in my garage with a nhra 6.0 sticker and no footbar.
I am going to add one at or near the midplace location but wondering it it is required and if it has to be outer frame rail to outer frame rail or if it can tie into the subframe connectors.
Oem steel roof clip cars seem to work better with the bar under the flywheel. I built my Cobalt with the center bar back about where the trans crossmember would be, then angled the side bars from that point up to the A pillar bars. This is exactly the way P/S stock cars are built. Certed 25.1E 6.00 with no problems.
