are the stainless steel screws lighter and stronger than the titanium ones with socket heads?

The stainless are just as strong - more resistant to stripping then aluminum or titanium and alltogether as a kit weights 1oz or less more then titanium. Stainless is also more cost effiecient - you would be paying at least double for titanium

Hey Jeff,

Bone stock with a Cyclone and Personal Transponder-car weighed 3.4. Not too bad. GT7 speed control, aluminum and Ti screws and maybe alum. driveshafts and I am sure I can get it underweight with Panasonics!!! GP3300's I think its gonna be a tad overweight.

I'll know a lot more about the car after Sat. practice day. IT is really, really smooth and easy to drive and nearly silent!!!

Default Evo3 Race Results and Weight

My Evo3 weighs in at 1289g race ready but not including transponder. The lightweight hopups I used include ti screws, aluminum ball studs, universal shafts, and just about every light weight thing you can trow at the car. Servo is the Futaba 9550 and the esc is a Quantum Comp. As you can imagine, the electronics don't add too much extra weight.

As for racing: I raced it for the first time last night at Socal. I was thinking of entering prostock but since this was the first outting with the car, I entered sportsman. I ended up winning both of my qualifiers (lapped the field twice in the 2nd qual) to get a TQ that was a few seconds faster than the prostock TQ (good job rbf) In the mains, lapped the entire field in my main (sorry for the hack corey, I was getting egged on to lap you). And this was done with what I consider not my best driving The car is smooth and has a ton of acceleration and good top speed. And with any car of this caliber, it can be dialed to suit your track.

so any word on the ball diff for the front? I dont like the idea of going through diff gears on the oneways... I haven't even built it.
I think I'll wait until I have that ball diff and lighter screws.

Well the 414M2 is setup to run at the Tamiya Track so it isn't fair to judge the two based on how they are currently set up. I believe that for a tighter track like SoCal, a shaft driven car would be ideal and that's why I'll use the Evo3 there. However, I'm sure I can get the M2 just as good but it's gonna keep its TA settings so I can prepare for some upcoming events.

TeamAE: Yes the stock setup is pretty close for most tracks and it only takes a couple of things to get it dialed

Default SET-UP?

RTYPEC,

In your set-up, what do you mean by down travel of 1mm for the front? Thanks.
