And we would love to see TH there to give MF a run for the gold. Although I gotta root for the local guy...MF.

There is also a full day of practice at Stockton on Friday, March 12.

Because it's called the "ROAR California State On Road Carpet Championships", don't you just HAVE to come to stake your claim?

i usually always use the low roll centers. your manual tells you the details.
So, the low roll centers give less initial reaction and more mid corner traction and the high roll centers give better initial reaction and transition but less mid corner traction...???

Is this right...

That's how I see it Andrew. Every time I run a higher roll center in the front the car initially reacts quicker.

Does anyone know the best place to put together a kit of aluminum screws for the XXX-S? I have put one together by hand with the minimum quantities at Fastener Express, but its around $70.

Anyone beat that?

They don't have a kit on line for the car, but I am going to ask about one.

I think if you ask for one they will do it as long as you tell them what is in the kit.

It's basically an end of the season carpet race. It will be my last carpet race as I'll be getting ready for the out door season and testing set up's with the new car. Hopefully you can make it if not I'll see you at the Reedy or the Roar nats.

Does anyone happen to have a list of the screws that are used in the XXX-S?

Otherwise, I will dig through the manual.

Default Ti screws

Hey guys, If you want ti screws try ebay, I just picked up a set for $35 for the xxx-s. It replaced all my screws even the small ones for the belt cover with this kit. Looks sweet! The guys user id is: rkressa2002. He's calling these Titan.racing screw sets but I cannot find a web sight using that name. He states in his auctions to contact him for complete sets if there's none on right now. Thought I'd pass this along.

Richo, just go to lunsfords site, I believe it lists the screws included with their titanium screw kit, but it doesn't include motor screws or the small 2-56 for the belt tunnel.

Trinity sells an aluminum screw kit for the xxx-s for around $15 but they are all blue as they are sold under the signature series of Kinwald. Check with your hobbyshop to order a set or if you have no hobbyshop you can order straight off the trinity shopatron.

Check the www.rcscrewz.com site.

Oops! Just checked. The list isn't there anymore; but, it is a nice site.
