Actually, somewhat anti-functional. If you bend the screw it becomes pretty difficult to replace because you can't back it out through the aluminum. You have to cut the bent screw off with a dremel to remove it. But if you never crash and bend stuff...

You have much less of the screw protruding, unsupported, past the threaded end of the FT bushing than with the thin nut and plastic bushing there; I'd think you're less likely to bend screws with the FT bushings.

Maybe less likely, but not impossible. I ended up with a bent screw on the outside of the bushing that Racer's Edge made for Losi shocks that are the equivalent to these for associated shocks.

Nothing wrong with using um , they perform just find and will out last the plastic ones by three to one.

They are cheaper to use, not more ...
