I wouldn't waste the extra money on the Fioroni pieces. I have the King Headz braces front and rear which are very similar to the FT braces. I have seen no ill effect in the rear with the single mount point.

I do have the FT alumnium top plate. I would get that with the cash you save if you don't have it already.

Unless you're running a super high bite track that's super smooth, don't waste your money on the aluminum braces. Go to the RTR from the torque rod style. And get the aluminum top plate.

I beilve the fioroni braces have a pivot point such as the ball end built into to increase tortional flex but I can say for sure.

Scott what are you running for setup, Its hard to get an idea when theres mabey one guy besides us running the rc8 in alberta.

They appear to have a hinge, not a pivot ball. If you want more torsional, run the stock link braces.

I'll get you the set up I'm running soon. Diffs are 5,5,5 and oils are 45 front 40 rear. That's a start.
