If that was really D.E. Jr. you got to come up to CRC sometime. K.B. and S.S. are there during the week racing on the indoor track. You will get a chance to smoke them there too!!!!!

Hey Jeff,
If you start using titanium screws, I would highly recommend a quality set of tools to keep them from stripping out. I've been using Hudy hex drivers for years and love them, I'm sure there are other brands that are good too.

Also keep in mind that some of the latest generation of cars are just about underweight from the factory. So, if your running gear is on the lightweight side you might already be hitting the minimum wieght anyway. I'm assuming your talking about 1/8th buggies here, or are you using these on your dirtbike?

Don't know what buggy you have but Mugen makes ti screw kits for the MBX'x. I've been using them for years. Just have good tips on your drivers & don't use ti on the ends of the chassis braces or on the shock mounting screws. The rest of the places are fine. You will pull a few oz's out of the car. For turn buckles, tie rods & hinge pins, Lunsford. I have bent a few of the lunsford ti hinge pins (warning).

how does everyone find it so hard to belive that he is who he says he is, its not like hes saying "hi im brad pitt".
Allot of MX guys are into RC, and allot of rc guys used to be into MX.

Jeff you might find Rc has a few very childish people, but generally we dont care who you are as long as running one puts a smile from ear to ear.

I've been using them for chassis braces and the shocks without an issue. Why don't you use them in those places?
