The other nicer thing about the TiR screws is that they are more counter sunk than the orginals.

Im sure they are great but I can't see spending $50+ on some screws. That could be a new battery for me.

As was mentioned WAY earlier in this thread (yes I read all the way though it) you can get hex stainless screws from mcmaster-carr (www.mcmaster.com) or anodized hex aluminum screws from Fastener Express (www.fastener-express.com).

You can do well with mostly M3x8 with a few M3x10.

Both are cheaper than the Ti screws, and WAY, WAY easier to work with if you don't have a pozi driver.

Yeah, they are pretty pricy. But they are also cool because they add a cool look to the car. If your cars gonna be fast, it 'otta look good too.

TI Racing screws are the bes screws I have ever bought. There tolarances are the best. And they dont strip out. Aluminum screws strip too easy and have a tendency to snap.

Still wondering on the Shuie springs are they progressive or not?

Actually, I stripped one when I was installing my kit. It was on the battery posts, those things are a bur. But luckily, the TiR kit comes with a bunch of spare screws. They thread the best and probably are the most durable over alum.

I looked into mcmaster-carr but I didnt see any self tapping metric countersunk screws. All I saw were the machine screws. Will they thread into the plastic bulkheads with no problem??

Make sure you use a good hex driver like, MIP or Parma. I like the MIP 5/64 best its a little over sized so it fits snuger.

Actually guys, the Schumacher springs are slightly more progressive than say AE or Xray. We seem to like the Schumacher springs outdoors and the others for indoors.

Harley- I spoke to Adrian today. He said that Victor has been so busy with the popular Warpspeed Demon that he hasn't given much time to the Mission chassis and there's no set date for release.

I wonder how hard it would be to get Schumacher to make a 3mm version of the stock chassis and carpet upper deck??

Keep in mind that Paul from Dirt Trixx is still working on his Mission chassis for production.

I haven't seen (nobody has that I know of) the new Warpspeed version of the Mission chassis and I haven't run the Dirt Trix one so I have no bias either way. However, I did get to try out the Dirt Trixx aluminum servo saver tightening nut, and it works soooo much better than the stock plastic one!
