The blue Ti screw kit you speak of is actually a combination of blue aluminium screws for the top, and silver titanium screws for underneath. However, I will say there are of good qulaity. I'm personally using them at the moment, and a full screw kit from RC champ worked out at about 25
Apart from that, try putting some light grease on the screws, diff lube is quite good for this.

What type of carpet racing are you doing? Foam or Rubbers?

TBH, I've found my MSX with the LWT suspension to be well suited to racing on carpet, it just needs a fair bit more tuning compared to the std/orignal 415 suspension.

My current carpet setup isn't too far off one I got from David Spashett, but tuned more towards my driving style, and running stock.
I've been meaning to put the setups up on my site, but have been too busy recently to do anything about it.
I'll post it on here if you want to try it out, bear in mind it is for rubber tyres.

HiH
Ed

is there any tips how hard we can tighten our screws? i'm affraid if we did not tigthen them properly, the chassis can be tweak or something.

I never used the stock black TAMIYA screws since the 414M. They strip to easy so I used all stainless. On my TRF415 was all titanium throughout. You can still strip the heads if you do not have a good hex drive. On my MSX, I am using the hop-up screw kit, titanium & aluminum. What I am going to do though, I am going to use stainless just only on the bottom.

Never use any type of locktite. I srew it in all the way and then give it a quick little turn to make it tight. I never any break or strip since the first 415 series. (knock on wood)

Hard to say but I usually tighten screws by holding the driver using the ends my fingers only, rather than grabbing the driver in my hand.

i see so you can control your power just with your finger right so you not overtighten the screw. ok i'll remember it thanks....
