Rear Travel Limiter (Droop Rule) - As taken from the Rulebook linked above.
a. A vertical travel limiting chain must be installed on the left rear of the car from the left rear axle housing to the frame. The travel limiting chain must attach to a bearing type mount or a clamp mounted bracket with the chain mounted to the top (12 o’clock) of the left rear axle tube, between the birdcage and the edge of the left rear bell of the axle housing, and to the left rear frame directly above the chain mount on the rear axle. Travel limiting chains must be installed so that when taunt they are as close to vertical as possible. One (1) compliance device may be used. The compliance device must not be more than one inch (1") thick (without a load applied) and remain completely open and visible. Compliance devices can be rubber or any like material but must not be installed in any type of canister. Springs, spring loaded, and/or pneumatic devices will not be permitted. No tapered, beveled, or roller skate type of compliance rubber will be permitted. Compliance devices must be solid material, same diameter top to bottom, not hollowed or drilled to soften the material.

b. The travel limiting chain including the compliance rubber must be installed so that when the car is jacked up from the rear the chain assembly is tight (no slack).The travel limiting chain is subject to inspection at any time during the event at the discretion of the officials. Cars will be jacked up on the under-slung frame rail between the center of the rear axle and the panhard bar mount. The left rear under-slung rail must be located between the left rear birdcage and the edge of the left rear axle housing bell. Cars will be jacked up until a forty-thousandths of an inch (.040”) shim will slide between the left rear tire and the ground. Once the car is jacked up as described a vertical measurement will be taken from the ground to the top trailing edge of the rear deck bar, six inches (6”) inboard of the left rear quarter panel outer edge. The measurement must not exceed fifty-one inches (51”).

c. All droop limiter assemblies must support the unsprung mass of the rear-end. The stretched value of the droop limiter assembly may be no more than three-quarters of an inch (3/4”) at 1,200 lbs. The procedure: preload 100 lbs. zero (0) distance, pull to a value of 1,200 lbs.
