Can't give you an exact figure, but Titanium is about half the weight of steel.

Hope that helps.

If your considering running them in a off road car/truck I wouldn't use them on the underneath side of the chassis or your asking for trouble.

Thanks for the info guys, Have you ran lunsfords titanium on the bottom side of the chasis? Just talked to Saxton a little while ago and he has yet to break a lunsford titanium screw, he says they are the best of the best, he runs all of them on the bottom and only wears throught the rear chasis screws.... they are 99 grams including the stickers and bag they come in, if they are about half the weight, you are saving roughly a 5 cell reciever hump pack...That alot of weight in screws if you ask me.

It all adds up! I used a bunch of titanium screws from Mugen and aluminum locknuts from Team VTX for my O'Donnell. I saved all the screws/nuts I replaced and put em in a bag and was amazed how much weight that little bag was!
