They arent actually stronger under torque but are still rated well over what the car can produce. They are simply better at higher speeds due to the material used, they are lighter which reduces the amount of "flex" causing imbalance.

the tail shaft loops that we are running in the race cars that I work on are simply a couple of bits of box tubing welded to the bellypan of the cars, however you can get nicer looking units from places like Rocket IND, but Im unsure of where you would mount them from
