Scatter Shield & Blanket

Somebody explain why a Scatter Transmission Blanket is only for Automatic Trannies? Will, or can they work for a Standard Trans? I run a 3spd Saginaw.

The reason I ask is a Scatter Sheild or blow proof bellhousing's cost big time Cake$$$, and a trans blanket can be had for under a $100.

The new rules for my race car say I must run a scatter shield of some kind. I've honestly thought about a real thick piece of belted rubber.... But I'm not so sure it would pass, it would with demo cars, or some other tracks. But I'm not sure about ours.

If I ran a high revving mill (this car doesn't 5500 RPM) I would have no problem spending some cash for safety, but I just don't believe this thing is gonna come apart on me. I put it in 3rd gear, and go, no shifting.



So, will a blanket suit my Standard? If not who makes cheap Blow-Proof bellhousings?
