I'm not sure it is worth bothering with titanium screws, as the car is already way underweight (my local rules minimum 1500g). I had to add 70 grams of lead to mine to get it there (car has no modifications yet), put it all down the radio gear side of the chassis and it is now very nicely balanced as a good bonus, and weighs in at about 1505g.

Don't waste money on the BLING BLING, it does'nt need it.
Buy yourself some spare diff gears, diff cups, arms, ball cups, screws.
Get some stiffer springs to experiment with, thats about it for this car.

Tamiya evo3 suspension blocks work in place of the f/r blocks. You can get some toe out of the rear that way, but it may widen the car. Also, you may be limited to a 2mm minimum block height. I have to check but the b block looks like its around 2*, so the c or d tamiya blocks should be like 1* and 0*. Will post more tomorrow.

shortyzz - The gear bath ( rather not call it "boiling" ) is to give the gears a little more "give." A couple guys on here who have not given the gears the bath treatement have stripped gears / lost teeth off the gears, Im assuming this is with contact with cars / walls though.

How: Get some water and bring it to boiling temp. Once it is boiling, pour it into a different container, and I let it sit for a couple minutes ( per instructions off HPI-Europe's forum ) and them dropped the gears into the hot water. Let them sit in the water for about 25-30 minutes, and then take them out, and let them air dry. Don't help them dry, because you want them to absorb the moisture, you don't want to dry them back out.
