Question on securing tail piece

For you guys with track bikes, how do you prefer to secure the tail section? Or what has worked best?

I'm currently building my 07 and can't decide which way to go. I have tried with the stock clip nut style with a screw, but was wondering if any of you preferred the dzus style fasteners?

Any help/pictures are appreciated! Thanks

Re: Question on securing tail piece

The top part to the subframe is held in by screws. The bottom piece is held to the top piece with dzus. I am running Optimals by the way.

I can post up pictures when I get home if you need.

Yea, I guess I should have clarified. I have the top section secured to the subframe. It's securing the under tail to the top piece that I'm wondering about.
