teah, I have some Ti screws and they are maybe good for 2-3 times of removing, then they are done. Curious to see if these are better.

So I went and ran a few packs....I think I like my car a little heavier. Its very close but I think its better with the 4600 pack which puts it closer to 1590.....so if I knocked 20-30 grams off it would be perfect with the bigger shortie. I want to once again reaffirm that if your goal is to be lean don't bother with most of the fancy aluminum parts other than the screws.

If you are going to the aluminum C & D mounts to make the car more adjustable that's silly. Its pretty much the same amount of time to swap the plastic mounts as it is the inserts....once again my observation. I did buy a set of the fancy blue mounts for all of my b5s (3).

I know a couple guys that went super lean. 1500 with FT alum upgrades. And they didnt like their cars much at all. said they never hooked up right. My goal is 1550-1570. why? that is what my RM car is and I like it.

By the time one has tried this brand, and that brand, you could have probably bought some Lunsfords (and a good quality wrench) and call it a done deal. There are NO better Ti screws in the rc industry.

They are triple the cost, but i guaruntee you they will last more than triple of 2-3 times of removing. If a screw strips out after removing it twice with a quality wrench.. then really they are worthless

I just bought the kit this week from Tower. The front axle nuts are tight, but everything spins freely so I think I got the updated collars/tubes.

I have some titanium screws from overseas that look just like those. They are ok and I have removed some of them a few times, but they are no where near the quality of the Lundsfords.

If I could find a good deal on some Lundsfords, I would go that route.

I am about to install the aluminum steering rack, but not 100% sure where those little spacers go. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

I got the rest of my crap on. I added aluminum screws in a few spots, slipper eliminator, ti axles & tie rods' the aluminum rack and something else I can't remember....I'm just under 1570 with a 4600 shortie. If I wanted to be ultra light I could swap some stuff back and probably save money and 30g at the same time. I also swapped in kyosho ogld springs. I hate to say it but the ae springs worked better.
