Anybody know of one that I can buy....I don't want to build.

I just picked up a titanium screw kit and am wondering if there is anywhere I should avoid using the screw?

Not really. ----, I put a AE FT Ti kit in my car and I'm thinking about if there is a single screw that isn't titanium besides the diff screw. Pretty much everything besides the hinge pin screws will be replaced.

Thank you so much for the link!

All the parts came to build my 3 gear trannys. Anybody have an opinion that has tried one? A few guys at the track are running them and say they're great but it seems like, based on what I know, it would cause a loss of forward grip. I'm going to try one out I guess.

I was wondering if someone had a top shaft lying around and could count the teeth and measure how wide the gear is.

I have a car running each. Its hard to say.....when traction is up the MM front arms might even give you too much steering but on the other hand the RM rear arms don't feel as good when there's lots of traction. I think its a personal preference thing. That being said, pretty much every set up sheet you see from the team guys uses the RM arms.

I would use the stock hardened steel screws for the top mounts of your shocks. Ti or Alu screws will tend to bend there. Everywhere else, go for it.

The manual tells you what the gearing should start at.

I bounce between 21-23/81 with a 7.5.

Cut the inner rib off a standard front wheel.

Even if the hole for the axle is too big, the hex will hold it in place.
