For years Vorshlag has been hauling around our cars to race tracks around the country. For most of that time we dealt with the issues most people have when transporting a lowered race car in the tight confines of a trailer...tow strap placement.
For the rear the normal towing solution is to get an "axle strap" and wrap it around a suspension arm or wheel, then hook ratchet strap to that. But to reach up in there and get the axle strap on is a real pain in the ass - crawling on the floor, watching out for the brake lines, reaching around the hot exhaust, routing the straps around other suspension arms, and the other hazards under the car can get annoying. There had to be a better way to tie down the rear of this car to a trailer.
Now Vorshlag makes these stout, 1/4 inch thick, CNC laser cut, steel tow loops that are easily mounted to the subframe mounting bolts. These are highly visible and offer much easier access to hook your tie-down straps to directly, with much less hazard or hassle, getting your car loaded and tied down to the trailer in seconds. These are angled approx 23 degrees to line up the strap to pull down to an anchor in the floor of a trailer.
- 1 Pair of Tow Loops
- 1/4" Thick Steel, Laser Cut
- Quick Access Point for tow hooks to strap a car down at the rear, to your trailer
- Pre Bent for better alignment when crossing the rear tow straps
- Powder Coated Bright Red for visibility for you or track safety crews - these can also be used for "off track extraction, if you let the tow truck driver know where they are.
We used these on the rear of our 2023 BRZ to make hauling easy.
Shipping weight is 2.0 pounds
During installation we recommend using a drop of red Loc-Tite and "paint marking" the bolt head, to visibly see if it has moved. Check these marks, as with any suspension bolt torque/position marking, during your pre-track inspections before every outing.
