here im lazy so only this pic:



idk about you but those look like steel screws to me! even on the top!

check out any pics you can find of factory hpi/hot bodies guys, more than likely they are running steel.

anyway no matter, the theory is still sound, all weight you would add will be above the top surface of the chassis, while the screw head resides below

On an aluminium bulkhead car, there aren't many metal to plastic screw housings. Most are screws into aluminium. Notice the top decks and the bulkheads.

Also, when a car is 100 grams underweight, why not run steel screws to keep from snapping an aluminium screw during a race? I bet Aluminium screws save a max of 5-10 grams over SS or Ti. screws.

I'm using the PRP chassis kit on carpet with foams and I love it!

The springs I'm running are quite stiff, I'm using the old range of HPI linear 25mm springs, green on the front and red on the back. I'm also running a black rear sway bar, and both front and rear shocks are fully stood up on the towers. I'm running 32 shore HPI foams all round without additive.

Everything else is pretty much stock setup, but hope this helps

pretty much my point. but you can run al/al, just use anti-sieze....actually you dont even have to do that! in oval we run al/al ALL the time! i think because both parts are annodized and the screws get removed every once in awhile you end up with no problem.
