just thought id mention, those fioroni braces dont have a grub screw that fastens directly to the hinge pin. with my king headz braces they do and it helps from pushing the pins through the inner braces(which are plastic on all stock losi 8/t factory kits/rr)

I have used king headz in the past and they work great. Just wanted to try an adjustable type. I know the losi ones have been known to break and let the hinge pin escape.

I have used the CL-1 version of this Fioroni mount (same design, different car) with no problems.

Rear toe plate is great but the front one blew out an insert on the first day of practice. The rear inserts are alum. the front are plastic. Bottom line I think I will stick with King Headz they are cheaper and less moving parts to fail. The inner retainers from Fioroni are beautiful. I am very pleased with these.
