    OK, I'll take another quess. They can't be seat belt anchors... so from your clue, they must be energy absorption / deflectors for keeping the trans-axle from intruding into the passenger compartment in a crash.

    Basically your last statement is correct. They're actually blocks that are mounted to the transmission to keep it and the engine from sliding forward and breaching the cockpit after a severe front collision.... and now you know the rest of the story. Good day

    You must take the compromise to win, or else nothing.
    That means: you race or you do not.
