Seriously...STFU!!

You don't run on the type of tracks they are talking about so how in the world could YOU possibly have any CLUE on how a MM car behaves on tracks you don't set foot on??!!! If YOU personally have NOT done it....then STFU and stop spreading USELESS BS on here!! If YOU have not personally done exactly what they are asking about....then DON'T speak on it! Only fools speak on things they have no experience with!!

lol, Several have tried the MM on my local outdoor track and although it can "work", it is a far cry from ideal or easy to drive. When the MM is good, they love it. When traction drops half way into the heat, they are hating their lives. We can litterally go from pulling wheelies to spinning out over a 6 minute heat if its windy. The wind pulls the water right out of the track. From my personal experience, you can make the MM work in more places IF you at least have fairly consistent traction. When you have drastic changes in traction during the race, MM is crap IMO. That has been my experience.

Stainless is the same weight as stock screws and more prone to breakage. Stainless is usually softer than regular steel used in screws. (I say "usually" because there are all sorts of hardness ratings for steel)

But it is shiny.

hate to tell you but I watched Mike Gay destroy everyone all summer long last year with a Centro outside on track that was low bite and sandy. M3 Holeshots front and rear type of track.

It is 100% driver preference. When he got his B5 a few months ago and had to run it here, he was significantly slower than he was with his Centro. As soon as he got his B5M, he was significantly faster than the Centro. And this was on a medium grip surface that is dominated by Rear Motor cars.

Like I said.... it's driver.

I agree. I'll never buy stainless again. They suck

DISCLAIMER: This is MY opinion and does not reflect the opinion of Team Associated or any of my "teammates".

When it comes screws/fasteners in R/C cars, I rate them in the following order:

#1 Titanium. Nearly as light as aluminum. As strong or stronger than steel. Won't rust like steel. Adds a bit of bling. One caveat: There are some cheap grades of Ti out there to be avoided. Con: Expensive.

#2 Stock fasteners or quality steel. There's a reason steel is still used to hold everything from iPhones to fighter jets together. Con : Heavy, prone to rust

#3 Aluminum. Lightweight. Ideal in low stress locations. Will not rust like steel. Can be anodized to give you some bling factor. Con: Not very strong. Can react to some cleaners. Anodizing fades over time.

#4 Stainless Steel. Shiny. USUALLY doesn't rust like steel. Some grades of stainless can rust. Con: As heavy or heavier than steel. Not as strong as steel.

IMO, anything other than stock hardware is bling. UNLESS you're an A main caliber driver at the stock Nats. Racing against the top factory drivers.

Hey Bob - What type of driver would prefer the MM? I had read a post suggesting that the MM cars (any of them) drive more like a 4wd car than a RM car. I run eBuggy and 4wd 1/10 Buggy too so I wonder if the MM would be a more consistent driving feel for me.

I think or believe if you have a smooth throttle finger,like to roll it through the corners,like a onroad driver mm would be the preferred choice,
