Thanks! I've contacted Preston from Flatirons tuning (where they were purchased), and addressed the issue, about the brackets, with him. I'll check to see if he got with Kartboy about the brackets. If not, I'll send an email to KB.
It was so weird, the issue we had with the brackets. It was as if a millimeter had mysteriously disappeared from the center of each bracket. I probably could have super heated each bracket, and they would have fit...or melted.
