is this true??? then what comes standard screw with the MSXX???

I know Losi is thinking ..... outside "the box"
(my type R is killing my MRe on carpet)

could we expect Tamiya to try somthing radical ??? I know Xray would follow on the footsteps ... if you know what i mean :P....lol
Release a predecessor to the 415? Do you mean a successor? Cos there are plenty of 414s about second hand.

The black screws are steel. They aren't titanium screws painted black. You can always get titanium screw sets for the MSXX if you aren't satisfied with the steel screws.

Hey guys,
Ran my TA05R today at my club race and a just clipped a wall and bent one of my DJ pro module rear arms, out one degree.
Does anyone have a bent module they'd like to sell?
PM me if so.....
Thanks

No one said that titanium screws were necessary to run the car. Steel screws are cheaper to replace if you strip them, and that happens a lot unless you use good tools (hudy). The performance gain that you get from using titanium screws isn't going to change the car much...at all.

Honestly I wouldn't waste my money on them, in screws, titanium is not that much lighter than steel(its weight is between steel & aluminum), & the strength gain isn't enough to really warrant spending that much cash on them, imo. I've stuck with steel & I see no need to go any other way, strong, reliable, & most importantly, affordable.....

No point in a complete ti kit anyway, you want to stick with steel on the screws that go through the bottom of the chassis. This way you will not raise the Center of Gravity. Use ti on the 'top' of car.

I would like to add to this conversation by saying if your going to use steel screws, use the stainless steel screws. The kit screws, I believe are a little softer than stainless and the weight is about the same. There are many aftermarket companies that make them.

I also would add if your going to do races that there are weight limits then stick with stainless steel but if you run where there is no minimum weight requirements then getting the car as light as you can is like free horsepower.
I would take advantage of any performance gains, since the screws have to be in the chassis anyway, why not spend a few more dollars to make the car lighter and quicker coming in and out of the corners? The average racer probably can't feel the difference but you'll have the potential of saving a few tenths on the lap times for sure!
Just my 2$
