Cutting ever other tooth off the belt is suppose to free up the drivetrain on and off power.

TiR(Titanium Racing) makes a ti screw set for the xxxs, expect to pay approximately $60US dollars retail.

You can buy some aluminum screws, but they can only be used in certain areas.........the stainless steel screws are nice....

No differance pro3racer. The only benefit of stainless screws over the regular carbon black steel screws is they won't oxidize not to mention they look cool. I would choose aluminum over stainless except for areas that have high stress ie; spindles, front bumper, etc.

What tool should you use to cut off the teeth? I tried using some body scissors, or some flush cutters, but they dont work too well.

Use a new Exacto knife blade. Pinch the belt but not to the point where you crease the belt and carefully slide the blade stragiht down at the base of the tooth so it is flush with the rest of the belt.

just go buy the new hd black belt conversion and cut the teeth on that one. It is freer than the yellow belt.

i would go to aluminum screws, but where i need them, i screw in and out alot, so that would probably lean toward SS, because aluminum stripps easier than steel, right, right. I think i will go with rcscrewz, just because i can get a full set for 20 bucks.

pro3racer- Lunsford's Ti Screwz are the best...and they are available in sets for the most popular on and off road kits.

Wow! $88.60 for only the 4-40 ti screws from Lunsford. My car is already at min weight; so, I did the RCscrewz on two cars.
