It'd be more cool to have screw kits like they have for the on road cars now. Titanium screws for all the load bearing spots and aluminum for all the spots that don't go through as much stress.

I would be depending on what screws we can get and of course the cost. I would want for both the B5 and the B5M.

It would use the aluminum acre kit from associate as I see no point in putting titanium in non load bearing spots, but I am open to other suggestions as I am still pricing it out for bulk

Are the AE alum blue screws worth the upgrade? And what screws are the AE kit missing?

And I think I'll give them a try too - I have a ton of them.
Tried the inline setup, with the battery in front of the ESC -- cutout all the bracing (front servo, front battery tray, rear battery tray support, put 1/4 of esc into waterfall) . Also went with the Losi 55 pistons all around, 35fr/30rr. I tried a bunch of spring combos -- black front/green rear felt the best (simliar to the spring combos the KYO guys run).

However, I don't think there was much of an advantage running inline w/battery in front of ESC vs. the stock battery layout. I was hoping for more...

Maybe others will find it more beneficial with a different shock package. Let us know.

Sorry about that you guys I was rushing because I was in the middle of something, it would replace the screws that the AE aluminum kit doesn't replace. I am also looking into titanium nuts for the wheels

How about some gearing for a mid, running an R1wurks motor on medium bite, packed clay. I was running 69/32 with that setup on my rear motor, will the gearing transfer over to the mid?

It's the same tranny.. the differences will be in how efficient you are on the track with the mid, in addition to the reduced air flow to the motor. You might want to back it off a little and work back up on it.

That's what I was thinking. Thanks.
