NHRA regs say it has to be within 6" of the front U-joint.

Stephen is correct. You are trying to prevent the nightmare scenario.... your car trying to "pole vault" using the driveshaft as the pole.

If you wanted to install one at the back end of the shaft, how much of an oval would you need for pinion climb. By the way, make the front one round (not oval like some are sold) that just gives the shaft room to bang around.
