I drop it.

We're getting there. I must say I like the DE wheels for something different.

I'm going back to white wheels because 85% of the B5s at my track are running the green DE wheels. Too bad my Tamiya wheels aren't hex, mmmm Pink.

Anybody know if there is a titanium thrust screw made? Snapped one this weekend, first time but thought would be cool to have titanium. The only screw in the kit that is not metric too, 2mm would be nice. Also the front hinge pin holder screws and hinge pin retaining screws, these little screws in titanium; I know it's excess but thought somebody might have an outlet. 2mm would be nice here too, those 1.5mm are touchy.

Anybody know how long ceramic bearings should last in diff and wheels?

Im not aware of a titanium one but the MIP ones are alot better than the stock ones and i have never had one break. I broke a couple stock ones before i started using the MIP stuff. Are you referring to the diff balls or the bearings that fit in the case? The SCHELLE ceramic bearings are money, I have had mine since april and no issues. I run all SCHELLE bearings in my car and they are awesome.

Yes thats what most all use. There is one location that you need to use a 6mm and that is the forward inside location. If you use a BS that is too long it will damage the bearing sleeve and bearing.
