what has changed compared to the original 5 hub ?
Do you gain directivity ?

I used them in 27t stock racing here, it made the car steer a little better.
Don't know about modified though.

johnbull: Thanks for the info on the Titanium Racing screw kits. However, do you (or anybody else) know where I could order one? I have heard nothing but terrible things about dealing with TiR directly, so I will avoid that at all costs.

futureal: try Schmacher USA. If your going to find anything TiR in this country, its probably passing through Schumacher USA at some point. So they would be a good place to start.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

FUTUREAL.

Like Darksied said Schumacher USA are supposed to be the US distributors for Tit Racing.

I import my stuff from them, and yes I agree, it does get a bit difficult at times. Actually I just sold my last MR4 screw set yesterday. I would have sent it to you gladly. I will be ordering more stuff from them, but I can't promise when I'll have it.

We had another good day Sunday. I won another round in Pro Stock, winning both my finals. And son Josh won mod with his TC3 so that made it the 4th JOHN BULL RACING double this season.

I finally received some of the silver graphite stuff yesterday. Although I don't think it will do much to the car's handling, it certainly looks trick. Apart from the top plate, which will give different flex, I can't see how the towers will improve the handling. The front tower is exactly the same, and the rear tower has more holes for the top arms but less for the shocks. A bit of a waste of money really.

I have put them on anyhow and hope to try it out this afternoon.

Will let you know results.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

yok king,

the ones on ebay are stainless steel, TiR sell titanium.

stainless steel is harder and will not strip anywhere near as easily as Ti but they weigh more, about the same as the standard screw set.

The screws to aim for are T6 Duralumin, this is a aluminium zinc alloy that is as hard as stainless steel, as tough as titanium but also lighter. If you can get hold of them, then these are "the bomb"

I checked Shumacher's site but it seems there is still no way to buy such a screw kit online anywhere. TiR's site itself is (more or less) down due a "factory fire" although if you look on their message board, it is 98% complaints about their service dating back many months.

I guess I am out of luck...

Hi Shane.

Sorry I can't be of help with Tit screws.

Try CML Distribution. I believe they stock Titanium Racing stuff in UK too.

Did you see my comments on the silver graphite stuff in my previous thread. What do you think.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta - where it's been pissing down for the last 3 days and i have an MR4 and a TC3 with lots of new mods that I need to test and can't.

I haven't had a chance to put together the SSG stuff just yet. I have about twelve different projects on my plate right now, plus I'm getting ready for three big races in the next 2 months. I hope to have the SSG together and ready to race a bit sometime in the next two weeks, but that is highly conditional.

I don't expect anything too crazy out of the new setup, but it should be a nice conversation piece at the track, if nothing else!

Does anyone know any hobby shops in Hong Kong or Japan where I can buy the SP V.2 mail order to the UK.

If you can post the link that would be great.

Thanks,
Yorkie
