There was a picture a while back in one of the UK mags.

Nope. Only the rings to make them flat.

If I mount my suspension as per the manual, but use Billet Titanium screws on the pivot blocks etc, will these be too weak or should anything other than aluminium be OK?

Thanks

I prefer running steel screws throughout my car, titanium stuff is fine for low stress areas though, but I wouldnt put them on the suspension blocks.

It might just be a high spot on the diff rings, did you sand both sides? I'll be at the carpet track all day tomorrow building IIC cars and finding the setup to put on them.

The only steel screws in my car are motor mount screws and the 2 3x3 screws (layshaft end and steering column), the rest are either Al or Ti, all the long ones being Ti. Have only ran couple of races this way, but no problems so far. I _do_ crash sometimes, so I have tested the strength
