Lunsford has gotten out of the titanium screw business.

They are out of the screw business. Additionally, they never released a set of the XXXs.

Your best bet is to check your hobby shop and see what sets of Lundsford they may have and put a set together by pulling from different packs.

There is no other company at the moment that makes Ti screws for the RC Industry.

There is another company that makes Ti allen head screws. Niftech makes them but they are more expensive than the Lunsford ones. Integy makes Ti screws too but they have the phillips screwdriver heads, they are the cheapest that I know of!

Addict sa RC, I answered your question in my post???!!!!

Integy Ti-screws are metric.

As for Niftech, havent seen their stuff.

Wailin, check out http://www.teamlosi.com/setups/XXXS/index.htm , there are a few Spashett setups there. You can also try leaving a message on the Trinity board.

Mark, sorry about that. Well I guess I'd have to look elsewhere. Are aluminum screws up to the task or should I just leave the steel screws and lighten the chassis some other way?

Default Aluminum screws

If you pre-thread the holes with either the tapping screw on one of the steel screws first, aluminum screws are just fine. Just don't use aluminum screws for the top or bottom shock mounts. You also probably shouldn't use them for the front bumper mounting either. I have replace all the screws with aluminum with no problems. With the aluminum screws, you can run the Matt Francis aluminum parts and your car will still be close to 53ozs.

64 pitch gearing recommendations

I am ordering the 64 pitch spur gears from Horizon Hobby. I have many pinions from my Pro2 and TC3. Do you guys have any recommendations on where to start for Stock (running rubber tires and Green Machine 3 motor). Also...for those who have the new spur gears....do I need all 3 or should I start with the 118 tooth?
Thanks,
Ken

FinalBlade: I bought mine at Dockters here in Madison and it was missing a few things from the kit as well. Losi was very responsive, however, and sent me the parts (with a few extras) right away. This was back in late July when the car had just been released.

Default 64 pitch gears

Horizon has the 64p gears now? I didn't think Losi put them out yet. The Matt Francis Red Spur adapter is a joke....It wobbles and is out of round...stick to the Losi gears and don't bother with the MF one.

Mr Losi - what are you running for setup these days?
