Accord,

I would think that it is possible to switch screws, but I am just suprised to hear that your stripping screws so easily. You must have just got a bad batch.

I have one other thing to try, and it is a bit of a reach but here goes, is the tip of the wrench getting all the way in to the screw. I had a wrench before that had a small bur on the very tip and it kept the tip from snugging in the screw for proper fit. If this is not the problem then I would assume your screws are just weak for some reason. Mine work really well however.

Do you already have screws purchased? My local Hobby shop had some Take-off screws that work well and are very cheap in price. I believe they were 2.00 for 10.

Steve

Default 3mm countersunk screws

You can replace the chrome plated ones with black ones if you want.No problem.Like steve said though,check you driver and make sure you don't over torque those screws.

Schumacher USA imports the Take-off screw bags, and I found these to work well and be a fair price. They have lots of sizes and you use a 2.0mm wrench. I believe they have different materials like Alum., and different colors too. To find info check out their website.

Accord, I recommend rcscrewz.com: http://www.rcscrewz.com
They sell high quality stainless steel screws. The Xray uses metric screws. If you have a lot of cars, you can buy the racer quantity pack vs. buying the individual kit packs to save money.

If you're looking to save one some weight, but need something stronger than aluminum go to ww.titaniumracing.com for titanium products. Not cheap, but very ver good quality.

I just ordered ball ends, turnbuckles, and screws for my soon to arrive EVO2. Gotta get ready for the carpet season

RBLove, all I have to say is WOW! Thank you very much!

The ROAR legal weight limit is 53g I believe, my car weighed 52.1g when setup stock with everything, so I was actually forced to add aluminum parts to increase the weight, haha! If I replace every screw and part with a titanium one, i'll probably just have to add some lead weights to get it right at the legal limit.

I find it funny how they have the T1 listed under Hudy as the manufacturer .

Thanks again for hte link!

Accord,

I noticed that. I ordered all of my items. Went back to site to look around and 2 of the 3 were out of stock... Hmmmmmm...

Schumacher USA distributes in the USA. You could call Paul Wynn or Adrian Martinez tomorrow and check with them..... www.rcaing-cars.com is their website.

wannabee-Well-theres two other guys really interested at this point. The first will let me know his answer today as I just shot him the pics of it. I havent heard from him yet, but I am sure I will by this afternoon. Thanks for looking out for me!! BTW-the Tc3 bumpers arrived and they look SWEETTT!!! Thanks!!

A guy PM's me about the battery straps on the T1r being too tight for GP3300's and I thought I would share what I did as its really simple to do!!

I took my dremel and opened up the scalloping on the bottom ever so slighlty. Then I took the sanding drum and made a slight notch on the strap where the body clip hits so the battery strap could go up just a little bit. Theres plenty of plastic there-so its no biggie. This way you arent adding washers, etc that can lead to the straps twisting. Heres a pic.
