how strong do they hold? i'm assuming somebody who has carbon fenders wouldn't go flimsy and cheap.

so i guess they're pretty good huh?

These toggle latches are what I used on the old car:




For the new car I'm using Camloc fasteners for a more secure connection. Slightly more difficult to install but the end result will be worth it.

Dzus fasteners from Pegasus Auto are great.
They have a new version out that locks better.

Yanos' car looks sick, I haven't seen those shots before.

Dzus latches like boost junkies. I like the self ejecting ones a lot. didnt see those when i was shopping around. but I have a second bumper and its so easy to make another strike plate to make them interchangable.

Will this become another track inspired car trend like tow hooks? I really hope those of you who have these quick releases actually track your car...

No install pics because they haven't been installed yet. But the assembly looks like this, only philips head. It sits flush against the bumper when locked down, nothing sticking out.

Or people might just like that fact that they can remove the bumper without jacking the car up and taking the wheel off...just a thought.

^another good idea..

again, its a taste like any other mod... omg you're doing a bigger turbo and you dont race? omg... you have wider wheels than 8s... and you dont use them...

word.... i guess it really only matters when you have extra bumpers that can be changed out.
