Not necessarily TiR, but they're Ti screws for a pretty decent price. No kit for the car specifically, but you can order packs of the screws you need.

Hey Jon, do you know if these screws are machined or forged? If they are forged then I would recommend treating them like alloy screws; don't put them in high stress areas as they are much softer than machined Ti-screws.

They are like the Mugen screws. Forged I think. They are soft but are one of the best quality Ti screw other than TIR and Lundsford. Mugens suck!! LOL

I was looking at the Ti screws, but then I realized that eventually I'll be running this in our local BL/Lipo spec class, which has a weight minimum, so I'd be saving weight, just so I can add weight later on. Meh....not worth the trouble, especially when you think about sticking those hidious lead weights all around the car.

What he said.

I personally don't like Ti screws. But that's just me.

Forgot to Thank Randy for his Help last week at SoCal. Taking the 2mm spacers out of the rear roll center really hooked up the rear end. And Sparks was thankful for helping him as well, he doesn't always take my advice. We taking this week off to save money for the new car. Hopefully we'll see you next week. Probably last week before the new cars arrive.

No problem.. Wish I had more time to work on your car, it was too hard to drive for me to really be able to figure it out. Sparks was easy, just gave it a little steering and it made a ton of difference.

right i think that you can get a repair pack for the driveshafts that consist of pins ect
as for the knuckles lol i run them but i know that most ppl wouldnt as the can bend and it is difficult to see wenever they are or not lol
with the plastic ones they bend and bend back if you know what i mean ir just break lol
id stick with the plastic as for one thing they are cheaper

just making sure im clear it isthe pin that the blades clip onto not the pin that the cvd pivots on. they seem to be a press fit but i thought if i heat the aluminium up the pin appears to be stainless which wont expnd as much therefor i could tap the pin out.
any one know?
thanks mattb ill pick up some plastic fantastic lol
