Default Ti screws..

the weight savings is minimal.... but if you do decide to put ti screws... keep the steel screws on the toe-blocks.. doesn't take much of a hit for ti screws to bend and your toe-blocks will develope slop.

Apex are probably the biggest mail-order modelshop in the UK and probably the most used too. They are very good here in the UK getting parts out to you, they normally arrive next day.

I'm sure it won't only be Apex with the outdrives so call round if you are not sure about them. I wouldn't have any problems ordering stuff from them.

I used an Alex Racing R2 kit that i had lying around. It's not a complete kit for the pro4 as i need to order a few longer alex screws but it does the job.

There are holes that are pre-drilled that fits the stock antenna holder..... the set in front of the center-post holes...
