Default Titanium Ball Studs In Aluminum Parts

So I'm kinda new to RC and I hear people say not to put titanium ball studs into aluminum parts like hubs, spindles bulk heads ect. What is the reason for this? They say they will shear off? so will steel. They say they will be hard to get out? so will steel. If someone can give me better insight to this I would appreciate it, bought titanium ball studs and have aluminum hubs and spindles and want to get this thing together, thanks.

Whenever you join dissimilar metals together, there's always the chance that oxides and other compounds will be formed, which causes the screw to get stuck. Titanium just has a habit of doing it more than most metals. As a rule, I don't screw titanium into steel or aluminum and I don't screw aluminum into titanium or steel.
