I would guess Ti would weigh less and that may be the key interest for some over the durability being less or more.

Weight vs. cost, easily decided by tracks enforcing a weight rule. (1499g min.)

Hey, are people gluing in the rear hub inserts (0/0.5/1 deg), or just the front trailing inserts?

I had plenty of help bending the 2 fronts I bent by way of a shortcourse truck ramming my buggy into the outside wall at full song.

I don't glue my rears, and have zero slop there. I recommend gluing in your trailing inserts though...

Cool, thanks! Going to glue the front in now that I've decided the 4mm works for me.

TRIPPLE check they are in right first... once that glue touches, they aren't coming out.

On my B5R, I just put a bead around the insert rim and snapped them in, lol. But I guess I should really be putting them in, test-fitting the axle, and then putting a small seal around the seam?

put in place, seal with glue

OTHERWISE, they just might not snap in just right and your axles will not spin smoothly again.

ask me how I know...

Thanks. Just did my 3rd day on the car and 7th battery. Holy crap, Reedy 17.5 short stack, HW v3.1 stock spec, and Pro-match shorty and this thing rips pretty good. I know it's not as fast as what you guys are running, but it's more than enough to be club level competitive.

Or at least it would if we can get the driver up to club-level competitive...

So the purpose of gluing the front trailing inserts is to prevent slop?

Right. I also used the "hard" parts as they made the front end feel more precise.

Correct, if the slop doesn't bother you I wouldn't mess with it. It bothered me so I put a little dab of CA on the edge and bam no more slop.
