Default Screw sizes for TC3 and XXX-S

What are the main screw sizes for the XXX-S and the TC3? I am trying to get quotes for Titanium, and probably will only be able to get the most common sizes due to price. I don't think anyone wants to pay $2.00 per screw for the special sizes.

I have the 4-40 in 1/4, 3/8 lengths for the TC3 in Button and Flat head styles listed. Any other main ones? How about the XXX-S?

4-40 Button Head 3/8 = 6
Steering Bellcrank(2)
Shock Bottoms to Arms(4)

4-40 Cap Head 3/8 = 14
Front Bumber To Chassis(2)
Front Body Mount Holder(2)
Batter Holders(2)
Front Shock Tower to Chassis(4)
Rear Shock Tower to Chassis(4)

4-40 Button Head 3/4 = 4
Front Upper Shock Mount(2)
Rear Upper Shock Mount(2)

4-40 Flat Head 1/2 = 4
Front and Rear Piviot mounts(4)

4-40 Flat Head 3/8 =18
To many places to list

All the rest of the stuff I would do in Aluminum

See what you can do

Mike,
For the upper f/r shock mounts you can always use Lunsfurd quick tunes, they are Titanium and make it easier and faster to change shock locations. Just buy the ones for an ACS composite tower.

Default Screw updates

Well, I've got a little bit of information back so far. It looks as though the button heads in Ti are going to be non-existant. They will have to be standard cap heads. Prices so far would be over $3.00 each. They are really outrageous. They are only going to give me like a .15 discount per 100 also. I am pushing to see the different types of alloys, and aluminum alloys I can get. I might be able to come up with something exotic that is light weight and cheaper than the Ti, but still stronger than aluminum.

I don't mind going with cap head screws, the button heads are nice but I'd rather have cap head Ti screws than button head aluminum screws.

In fact, right now I have already replaced all of the button heads on my XXX-S with aluminum cap screws.

Default Ti

Well, we've done some changes to the website to reflect the TI situation. Flat heads and Cap heads only, 4-40 and 3mm diameters. Other sizes are available.
