huh? how could that be? isn't titanium much much stronger than steel? how have you come to this conculsion?

Because titanium is 4 times lighter than stock steel yet retains the strength of steel...

i'll eat my hat if i'm wrong but I think you'll find titanuim is stronger than steel. i am pretty sure its even stronger than stainless steel(but not %100 on that).
take mountain bikes for instance, the frames they make out of Titanuim use tubes about half the diameter of the tubes on steel frames, why? because titanuim is about twice as strong(if not stronger).
my friend is a machinist and they won't do Titanaim at his shop because its to hard for the cutting bits, yet they will do steel.
this is all just based on what i've been told and not hard facts, maybe someone who knows for a fact could jump in here and clear it up for me?

TA03 Drive Hard - those cvds are better than you thought man!
i've done a seach and heres some facts i've found

"Titanium is three times stronger than steel, while weighing only 42% as much, making it an ideal strong, lightweight metal for structures such as airplanes and rockets. It is also chemically inert under normal conditions, enabling its use in medical implants such as pacemakers."

The square CVD's so called titanium is not as strong as you would tought. The joint end will still be runs out first and it will bent with normal crash. I do not recal they call it titanium, it is 64max which I think a base material for titanium. I might be wrong

I would prefer to stick with aluminum and throw away after the race since the squeare one is 3 times more expensive and it definately wont last for three races. Or just stick with the steel for front for much cheaper price

I think either Racy or Mirage made a 2-speed for 04/414 series cars, you can order them from Japan. I'm not 100% sure though

The 04 king pins you refer to will work on the bottom of the steering knuckle. They easily replace the 3mm screw,bushing combo. On the top side of the knuckle you still have to use the silver threaded ball to connect the ball cup to it. The 04 is exactly the same way so there is nothing else you could use on the top as far as I know.
