that's crazy , check also the bearings probably those are also in pieces inside...

after every crash you should thoroughly inspect the suspension for bent or cracked or broken parts...

The weight of the 007 is already pretty light, but it is up to the individual, me personally I don't like aluminum screws, they are too weak. I would go with Titanium if you want to lighten up your ride

Just to let you know, I nailed down a pretty good setup for SIR. I just posted it a few min ago on Xray's setup sheet database.

I heard you were kicking ass today @ SIR, thanks for posting the setup.

What rear springs were you using? it seems like that info is missing.

B, I'm interested in titanium, too. The problem is, they seem hard to find. I think Speedtech had the only set I could find, and I'm not seeing anyone selling loose screws.

They have magnesium screws as well http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/product_i...oducts_id=6020
those are pretty light as well: steel 7800 kg/m3 titan is 4300 magnesium is 1740 I don't know how strong they are though...

On the stainless steel screws: those are the same as normal steel weightwise but significantly weaker so they bend easy. Add to that stainless steel is non-magnetic so it won't stick to the screwdriver which is a pain. For titanium at least you get the advantage of the lighter weight. So I don't see any reason using stainless other than the bling-bling effect because they LOOK LIKE titanium...

Just to let you guys know, I went back and edited the sheet. I realized I posted the setup that WASNT the fastest one on the track, but it was one of my variations I used. So the new setup has no sways and white/yellow srping combo. It was a tick faster for me and a little easier to drive in some of the bumps SIR has.

Don't order from Titanium Racing. The company sits on my money and does not deliver!

Well, when you buy the whole shock plastic parts set they usually give you some ends in there that are a little longer than the actual short "T2" type shock ends. I personally use the longer ones that aren't the t2 type on the back of my cars to allow for more droop adjustment range without the shocks bottoming out. They should also give you a little more ride height range as well!
