I used BD7 titanium screw kit. Was a while ago since I did it but I'm 99% sure it covered the entire car.

I just bought individual packs of yokomo Ti screws. I don't like replacing the screws on the bottom of the chassis with ti nor the topdeck screws. So I just bought the screws I wanted to replace and that brought my car down to exactly 1380g

You guys will think I'm crazy, but when I first weighed my car at Reedy it was sitting at 1335g.

Orca TX 5.0
Orca VXX ESC
Orca 6200mah 90C battery
2.25mm chassis
Protorform LW LTC-R

That was all with steel screws, and an aluminum spool

What is the weight difference between the stock graphite chassis and new aluminum chassis?

I just bought the wildfire d06 for 419.00 when I could have gotten the Dynamics version for about $50 more? Lol

Chris, this is true, but I'll take care of you and what you need.

You don't need the Aluminium chassis- they tweak/bend in a hard knock.

Yes, this is racing. If you crash hard, things will bend and break.

At this year's Reedy, one of our team drivers was brake checked on the straightaway (For no reason) by a car in front of him and he crashed into a board at the end of the straight and bent the 2.5mm chassis.

Carbon fiber is no exception to damage, nor is any other part of a car in hard impacts.

Hi,

Shoot me a quick e-mail to let me know what you need so that I can check for you.

My 2.5 mm deck was broken also first weekend out.I brought a flex deck and have got in top 3 in every race since then.
What a great car.(New Zealand)

In addition to the kit blocks I've found I like to have the following on hand:

2 pairs of C05 blocks
1 pair C10 Block
1 E25 block
1 E20 block

This gives you the ability to do a lot with setup. More or less toe, Arm sweep, narrowing the rear end ect.
