Let me know what you think of those because I've been thinking of trying these out.

Stlnlst...so far so good. Only about 10 packs on the 21 tooth. I do wish that they would not undercut the pinion (leave it full - a heavy pinion is not a bad thing).....but..the lack of "heavy metal" qualities of titanium is minimal.

Size is 1/16"....I believe.

1/16 works for the taller pinions like 24 and up? but does not work for the smaller pinions>

acloco do you have the TIR pinions? Also do the TIR pinions last as long as the losi pinions?

I only purchased two...a 20 & 21. So far so good.

The only drawback that titanium pinions may cause....because they are super hard.....you might experience rapid spur gear wear..as the spur gear will wear out quicker....especially if the mesh is not perfect or near perfect.

Yes....64 pitch they have as well.

white ball cups are RPM

my friend has done one and it looks exactly like BK's and the flex in the chassis was really nice

would it not be better to have a chassis that does not flex... that way the suspension will do the work? That way you have one less variable to worry with if you have a car that isn't handling correctly.

This is of course just my opinion...

are you sure they rpm?? they dont look all big and bulky like rpm.

-flex is good if: you are used to it, and helps smooth out driving on asphalt. (my opion).

RandyB-They are some clear/white ball cups that were made up to test different materials. So some of the top team drivers got them. BK likes them a lot so you see his cars with them, they seem to be slop free so they work great. Losi has never sold them so unless you have a team hookup you are SOL.
