Do any of you use 3 Racing's titanium screws in your cars? How do they compare to Titanium Racings kit? Just wondering, because if they're good quality, for $32 I'd go for it.

Thanks,
Josh

Speaking of screws, do any of you have extra button head screws? I need some long ones for motor and servo mounting in my car

You want someone to send you 4-5 screws instead of you going to your local hobby shop and just shelling out $1 to buy them?

Those Ti Screws are OK. I know a guy that has them and he has not complained.

I am putting the Steel screws on my car in all the places on the bottom side of the chassis. I need to gain 4oz of weight somehow to make legal weight and right now my car is perfectly balanced. I guess when I paint my Body for Snowbirds I will put 10 coats on the body

OK as in not as good as the Ti Racing ones?

Heh, I was traction rolling in every corner once, and eventually I discovered it was the body - way too much paint, and I'd backed it with some laquer.

He never said about the Ti ones

Where there blows that idea about adding weight to my car.

Sorry, I just thought Id ask

Oh well, Gonna order the screw set and hopefully get my TC3 in service as soon as my radio comes back from service. BTW, what do you guys think of the new Losi Skoda body. Kinda reminds me of the WRCs Skoda Octavia car

WYD: Thanks for the vote of luck at the Birds... i hope all that go have a great week of competition!

MikeWebb: I just signed up for 19T this year. Didnt have cash for batteries and tires for 19T AND modified. I split my racing fundage on a B4 a few months ago... and loving every minute of it! I may be selling my TC if this fun in the dirt keeps up!!

Speaking of legal weight, is TC weight at the Birds 50 oz again this year? I just realized by reading yalls discussion that i was building my car unconcerned about weight limit. I had to add almost two ounces last year to be legal!

- Dave
