I tried one and didn't care for it, when looking at the design, how is the bottom of the shoe suppose to release or slide away from clutch bell, the bottom of the shoes and flywheel is flat.

I'll have to check but you may be able to just use a 4mm Button Head in the arms for droop screws. I know guys did this on the HotBodies Truggy and it worked well.

I'm asssuming you mean putting the button bit down to protect the chassis? I'm not at home so I cant check my buggy but wouldn't that make it difficult to change the droop?

I thought I'd try replacing the droop screws with the button head ones. I found some 4mm screws in my toolbox that tried.





I've only done the front so far. First, I measured my shock length at full extension so I could easily check the new droop.

I then disconnected the shock at the shock tower as you need to get full suspension compression to put the new screw in. I then removed the old screw and put the new screw in from the bottom up. I found that with the screws I used, I needed to screw them all the way in to get back to my original amount of droop. So they will protect the chassis and they are set to my droop, but I cannot add more droop now. So it's not without it's disadvantages.
