Default 3 Racing Titanium Screws

Speedtech is selling a set of these for the TC3 for $32, and I'd pick up a set but I'm hesitant as the price is almost half that of other such kits.

Does anybody have any experience with these screws, as in are they of comparable quality to those that Titanium Racing and Lunsford make?

Does the kit include the motor screws?

I don't want to buy the Ti Racing screws because I hear they are anodized now, and I'd rather have them silver.

Thanks,
Josh

As of right now the Ti-Racing screws are still silver

Thanks for letting me know, I just saw on Ti Racing's website that their screws would be coming anodized "Team Colored" to match the car, so I assumed the TC3 screws would be blue.

Default Quality Ti Screws

Speedtech RC does sell high quality Ti screws. The price is definately better then what one would find elsewhere. Same high quality from a reknown Ti screw manufacturer who does OEM for a lot of Motorsports companies worldwide. Just thought I'd point that out.

SpeedTech sells the Titanium Racing screws, the 3 Racing screws, and their own line of screws.

I called SpeedTech's number and I assume I talked to Steve. He said the 3 Racing screws are as good in quality as the Titanium Racing screws, but they are out of the 3 Racing set currently.

I just ordered a set from Lunsford.

Why not just stick with the Factory Team screw kit for the TC3?
the aluminum screws are lighter than the TI screws. I cannot imagine that I would ever need the extra strength that TI screws offer. With racing the car for over three years, I have yet to break an aluminum screw on my TC3.

I've started to strip out several of the screws on the bottom of the chassis. Like you said there is definately nothing wrong with the screws that come with the car, but I think silver screws look better than blue, there's too much blue on the car as is.
