I never subscribed to this zip-tied head theory as I mostly run on-road TC's
( and an NMT of course), but nitro buggies usually have their head exposed
outside the body and are left unprotected in the event of a flip/rollover.
Now obviously zip-ties aren't going to really reduce scratching the head up
on any type of HARD surface (ie:asphalt) BUT on a dirt track they seem to do
the trick. Interestingly enough Mugen makes little head protector (dots)
which are pressed into the 4 holes that the head screws use. They come in
about 5 diff flavors and probably are more useful as eye candy than for any
real practical use. Just my opinion.
