hey neas,
mcmaster carr has all kinds of bulk screws for our uses. i happen to live 20 min from the warehouse so i can just to a will call and pick them up. they have stainless and aluminum. metric and std thread socket cap screws in flat, button, and std heads. it's awesome. you'll drop a few bucks on the stainless, but it's way nice.

at least check it out at
www.mcmaster.com

all kinds of stuff. they are an industrial supplier. in fact they have lathe bits for like 3.50 in carbide. they also can provide raw materials like delrin, c/f, and fiberglass for machining your custom car parts. well, hope that helps. oh, and schumacher may have some too. what?

It's
www.titaniumracing.com
I've tried hard to get in contact with them but it seems pretty hard. All I've seen is their website that has loads of animation, but no information what so ever.
Oh, someone was asking about the benefits of the stiffer upper deck. The flexy one gives the most grip always, but when the traction comes really high the car doesn't carry the corner speed anymore. The stiffer deck loosens the car up, making it more aggressive, and... faster. It also helps on the traction rolling.

The site looks cool...but it looks like one of those things they dumped time into at first and now they just ignored it since.

What other options are there for to replace the stock pieces for the mission?

damn the site isnt even that cool, they tried to be all high-tech on it and ended up with a horrible product in the end. I guess I will forgive them if I can get a set of the Titanium CVD's

Not sure if they are available in the US, I wouldn't think so. In the UK they work out close to the list price on schumacher steels.

I would like to introduce them to my friend called the font . Thats right developers, they make fonts that look real nice nowadays. I see to many sites that spend time on interface and forget about the little stuff. Anyways, those bones look sweet.

Default Screws

Hey Paul...let me know when you get the new screws in...I have the big head original ones...wanna swap?

Simulatedwood...head to the rcfiles site and get Ron's carpet setup he used at the snowbirds...if you find yourself traction rolling, lay the shocks down one hole on the upper mount. Otherwise it should work for you on carpet with a one way...Later

Hey guys now that I have my mission on its way I am in the midst of a dilema. I use LRP speedos in all my offroad stuff(V7.1) and I love the smoothness of it. My question is, is the Zero Extreme a smooth speedo or a punchy one? I used to use the Cyclone and when I made the switch to the 7.1 I was so happy and my lap times went way down. So I am in the search for smoothness, I would prefer to get the smaller Zero Extreme but if it isnt smooth I will just get a 7.1 and try and get everything to fit. Thanx guys

You'd get a 7.1 in without too much hastle. I don't know the Zero V, but everything that i have read about it surgest that you can program it to do more or less anything that you want. I've got a Quantum in mine, fits nicely!!

I have a choice of useing a LRP SR or a Cyclone (original) for stock racing. Which is going to be better? I have the SR in there right now, but I haven't run it yet (I am taking my sweet ass time with this one). I got both of them used and the SR is just cleaner, that's the only reason it's in there right now. Also, has anyone had issues fitting their reciever and speed control while still having acces to the belt tensioning nut. The way I have it now, the crystal on my receiver is pointed out, like it might get hit if someone T-bones me. Let me see a pic or a snazzy diagram

Thanks
CS
