On my short course truck I had problems with the wheels not running true because the wheel center hole didn't fit the axle. I took some 1/8 striping tape and wrapped the axle just outside the hex until the wheel fit snug. Easy fix and the wheel fits better

Has anyone compared the AE FT Ti Screw Kit, Schelle Ti Upper Screw kit, and Lundsford Ti Screw kit?

I know the Schelle kit only replaces the upper screws, but which one would be better in the long run as far as durability?

The Schelle kit says they are higher grade than the "other" screws available (not sure if they are referencing AE, Lunsford, or someone else.)

For anything Ti I would only use Lunsford. Made right here in US and is guaranteed grade 5.

I can think of more than one person that has. You also should buy two kits, so you have backups.

The AE/protek kit aren't bad, but the lunsford is world class.

The Schelle kit is made from the same grade of Ti as Lunsford (grade 5) and are extremely good quality and they're only $64. The AE is supposedly pretty good but the screws are not shiny at all (which is one reason why I like Ti is the bling ) Lunsford is deff amazing quality but you pay for it bc they are like $120 for the kit.

I went with the Schelle and love them!

Does running the aluminum C and D plates (front/rear rear arm mounts) get rid of the nearly 1mm of slop that the stock ones have at the arm?
