the AE titanium screw kit has all the screws except for the small screws that hold in the hingepins.

Directs are really only beneficial on high bite surfaces. Any track where you have the power to break the wheels loose under acceleration out of a corner, the direct can really bite you in the aft by helping you spin out. In that situation, a slipper would provide a little forgiveness. Slippers also put your tranny under less stress when landing a jump. But the direct significantly lowers your rotating mass which is pretty important in spec'd racing

I was going to ask the same question. I wonder what the big difference is.

I do know a lot of the fast stock guys at OCRC are running it. I just don't want to buy a new body and paint it, just because of a new transmission.
