or for the cheap skates, pre-thread with your steel screws first.

That is good news! Just take the doc's suggestion on recovery time serious no matter how anxious Tom gets.

When re-inserting aluminum screws into plastic I always turn the screw the wrong direction until I feel the screw drop. This tells me that I now have the threads aligned and I will not be cutting new threads when I screw it in. You have to try it once or twice to feel what I mean by dropping into the threads. It is hard to explain that feeling.

Great tip! I wouldn't have thought of that.
Which places are you guys using the alum screws, and what ones would you keep steel or Ti?

When I had my B5M I believe I only used the aluminum screws where they recommended them.

I've owned a car with alloy screws before. Never again, Ti is just so much stronger though slightly heavier.

Count the gears. Shot from the B5m lite manual. To each his own. I always run it towards the spur to remember which side the head is on.... all adjustments (slipper, gear mesh, diff) on the same side.

Yes..and the Lite has the 3 gear which would put thrust bolt head on passenger side of car.

Is there any reason I should get the b5M lite if I will just run mod?

I think we are going to see this over and over. Nothing about the lite car makes it stock only. If you need weight you can add it.

Trailing axle inserts--Can the insert be moved back and forth without wrecking the setup? Like how critical is it to move the front wheelbase at the same time?
