that torque arm shown above (http://www.ebike.ca/store/photos/TorqueArm14.jpg
), is not meant for rear wheel, and this i know for two reasons:
1. i tried it, horrible horrible
2. ebikes.ca sold it to me and informed me it's not for rear wheel but for front wheel.
What you need to do is get a solid one piece torque arm.
You can either buy it OR you can make it yourself if you're handy with tools: I fashioned one using heavy gauge metal bar from canadian trie, i used a hand held grinder and cutting plate to cut the exact square i needed. It did the job perfectly I have it on my 72 volt 408 cyrstalite system. Careful when using hand held power tools, such as a grinder, you need proper gloves, eye gear, clothes, clamp etc.
