just use the blue spur 128 I think its the best one mosst of the time. 128/37 for stock 128/28 for mod (8x2) there is nothing more you need maybe pinions 39-27. Those adabters are really bad I had one and from hearing other people, the normal spurs are just fine.

I say if you're going to get a screw set, you might as well go titanium, especially if you are prone to stripping screws out. Sounds like a wise investment.

I put a 128 spur on and it's very true. I've had bad spurs from several companies before though.

I haven't stripped any screws yet, but one thing I want to get for the car in the future is the TiR titanium screw set and ball stud set. I'm not sure what their website is, but I've seen their screws and ballstuds and they're awsome! MUCH lighter than stock!

Default save your money

replace the screws with stock steel ones not alum. they break and if you had trouble with the stock ones you'll really not like alum ones but get the tap first

microfasteners.com or fastenersexpress.com I think they Industrial supply houses not r/c companies you have to go thru your manual and give them the sizes you need with type example 4-40x3/8 socket head or 4-40x1/2countersink head and tell them what size wrench they should require 1/16" or 3/32" or 5/64"

Aren't the stock screws steel?

If you just get more steel screws, then what's the point? You will still be stripping them.

Just spend the extra on ti screws, and you won't have to deal with stripping.

Default Get a set...

from Ti Racing. They are very nice and lighter than the stock steel screws. Great finish to boot.

as stated above the problem was not taping the holes not the screws ......if you want ti....go for it and yes they are more durable but if you don't tap the holes in losi graphite parts all screws will strip or break

Even with tapped holes, if you aren't careful with steel, and especially aluminum screws, they are prone to stripping. If you try and tighten a screw faster/harder than the material it is being screwed into, you risk it stripping.

All of my cars are done up in stainless screws. I have used stainless for 2 years now without any problems. Never strip, don't rust, lighter then steel, stronger then aluminum, and aren't $100 a set.

Like they said, if you don't pre-tap graphite holes anything will strip. Titanium screws sound great because of the fact they are titanium, but I know a few people who have stripped them. They are a low strength titanium to be able to make them.
