Actually stainlessis soft and prone to galling also. We build full size street rods and would never even think of placing s.s. in any area that strength and saftey is required such as suspensions,etc.

Hey, Guys...this has worked for me everytime I've had a screw that didn't want to come out (even Ti screwed into aluminum). This is easier if you haven't stripped the head away yet, but I place a soldering iron on the head of the screw for about five seconds to get it hot. After I do that once or twice, the screw comes right out.

You are all using metric allen drivers aren't you? Don't forget that Xray being a European company all the measurements are in mm, not fractions of an inch.

Hey guys I have an Xray front one-way diff for sale in the for sale forum. I took a gamble and got one to use with my C4 but it doesn't fit. It's built, in *mint condition* and unused.

$40 shipped to 48 states.

Pm me for details.

pucho-that peanut butter song is pretty funny (Followed your link).

Anyways-I am seriousely considering converting my second evo2 C-hub car to be a evo2/T1R hybrid. All I need to order are the chassis plate and battery straps-correct? I bought a second evo2 C-hub car recently and the cars in great shape except the chassis and aluminum battery stand-offs. Its for sale in the Swap and Sells-but I dont think anyones going to buy it with the chassis thats on it.

Ray

hi Ray, is that the one with alu c-hub being sold by theisgroup?
if so would you be willing to sell the alu c-hub conversion only?

Stay away from aluminum screws..they strip easily.

Ti are good going into plastics parts...but if you put Ti screws into aluminum parts... you're looking for dissaster...
both materials are not compatible...they will permenantly bond themselves together.
Good info, thanks. SS screws are heavier than Alum right? I have found that the alum screws have stripped the heads easily, mostly chassis bulkhead screws. What weight differenence do you think a alum screw xray will weight in compared to a Stainless steel xray?

Alum..vs SS..

SS screws will probably be only a few grams heavier.
It may be heavier...but you'll have peace of mind that it will not strip or break.

You'll probably want the extra weight if you intend to race at a sanctioned race, or a race that uses a sanctioning body's rule and regulation. I have to add the additional weight of a motor to my car to bring it up to weight!

We have been using roar rules which states 50.5 oz with personal transponder. I'm just over that so I didn't want to add a whole lot of weight...but I bet it would be worth the piece of mind. Thanks.

Ya that is pretty funny HUH! Anyways as fas as converting to the cokmposit chassis I believe that is it othen that the small mod you have to do in the fron side of the chassis. Or you could get the t1R lower suspention holders and avoid that, it willalso make it easier to adjust the tow in the rear as you place the spacers on the rear of the bulkheads instead of in the front like on the EVO2. Ive still yet to weight the car with foams ill get that to you guys soon. Also as far as titanum screws goes I used the on my Shumaker with out any problems at all.
