Transmission Shields and Scatter Shields
A transmission shield provides safety for the driver, track workers and spectators. SFI specification automatic transmission shields are required in many racing classes in order to pass technical inspection. These trans shields are also sometimes called transmission scatter shields which can be confusing. Blow proof bellhousings as used with manual transmissions were known as scatter shields for many years before protective shields for automatic transmissions arrived on the scene.
In an automatic transmission equipped competition vehicle, the transmission shield covers the main area of the transmission where the bands, clutches and gears are located. A flexplate shield is often also required. This covers the area of the flexplate and torque converter.

All of our transmission shields are certified as meeting SFI 4.1 specs and they meet or exceed the requirements of all major competition sanctioning bodies. We have models available to fit all popular automatic transmissions. All of our transmission shields are made from 6061-T6 aluminum. Each and every SFI rated part we sell has the most current possible date decal on them when shipped.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you sell the CSR transmission shield?
No, we do not sell the 1 piece Kevlar CSR brand. We suggest you contact CSR directly if that is the type you want to use.
What is a scatter shield?
Some people use the term for what is more properly called a "blow proof bellhousing" on manual transmission equipped vehicles. It is also sometimes used to refer to the solid aluminum type of safety items as listed on this page which are made to wok on automatics.
Which is better a transmission blanket or shield?
We feel that a solid aluminum type shield is the better choice. It is far easier to clean, allows the trans to run cooler, and does not hold grease, oil and dirt the way that a blanket does.
