xfactory has a set of shoulder screws that screw into the front castor blocks making the front end much stronger. the stock setup has the castor blocks floating on the pins, which can easily separate in a crash.

FYI - BJ4 front castor blocks do not fit without modifications

but now that mine are modified, i can run actual hinge pins through them and the a-arms.

also have some a-mainraceway castor blocks coming in soon.
