Stainless steel screws are the second worst choice next to aluminum for RC applications. They are way too soft. Stick with black oxide steel screws, preferably grade 10.9, like those that Tony's Screws sells. Second choice would be something like the Lunsford Fat Boy titanium motor screws.

I feel that you are able to get more torque on the screw itself because its not digging into the aluminum mount, the ruff side of the washer is.
I don't want to spoil my orange! If u look at the link posted above this is what I mean. I'm not 100% it will fit but it has a nice load spread capability and button head to really torque it down!
The issue with a washer unless for instance a 1mm, any thinner it will bent and attempt to go into the slot for the screw to move in, the product above ill not collapse because of the design of the sides.
This is a lee Martin product obviously off road legend, if the buggys can be thrown or go mid air to a complete stop of nose diving the triple! And the motor stays put surely this can only work for the ones having issues?

No u need to chop heat sink in half or run sp mmm motors with wires on the back. There are better options out there.

If they work its cheaper than 1 spur gear! Replace from wear not motor moving!

I am happy to purchase before advising u guys in the states to ship over as its just adding cost for something that might not work!

But if they don't at least u can sell to ur offroads buddys

The only way the washer is going to try to pull into the slot is if you are using a screw that has a head thats too small. I have .5mm washers under my stock screws, torqued to the moon, been thru 20+ minutes of running and they are still the same as when I installed them. They aren't "digging" into the aluminum, just gripping onto it. I just backed one of them off and there is no marks what so ever in the mount.

I am just throwing an idea his way that worked for me. I had a pro XRay sponsored driver check my car and he said to have washers under the screws.

That's a lot more reasonable price to experiment with. So You don't have any clearance problems ?

Yeah I'm sure it's more the washer really than the screw, the bigger the surface area the better with weight loading.

It was an alternative to try, if he has done so many spurs if this product fits and works it will save him money.

Sorry incorrect if the screw is soft (steel can be soft different grades etc) then the head can bend just as easily, I assume ur .5 washer is not steel. Then on the flip side of this, u can have a real tough screw a soft mount... A do the screw up enough the screw will either a pull the thread on the motor or B sink in the mount! If it sinks it won't move!!

Believe it or not, its a 3x5x0.5 aluminum shim. As I said its the factory kit screws. I have all the proof I need sitting here on the table and in the performance on the track yesterday, and there is nothing incorrect that I'm seeing.
