If its a kit with aluminum screws (Team or Factory Team Kits) its' advisable to get a 4-40 tap and tap all the screw holes to avoid breaking or stripping the screw heads. Makes it easier to change things later too.

I agree with slots there. I hav a TC3 and i had to replace alot of things from stripped parts. Costy. Here's a tip. When u get the kit, clean the bearings with either WD-40 or,if u can, use motor spray. It will clean the bearings for better performance. And take out the silicon seals on the bearings so it will hav much more less drg, yet it will need more cleaning. it's actually worth it. If u don't do that, it's alright, but i say that's a sign of lazyness. If u hav anymore questions about any of this, go ahead and PM me. I don't mind, i lik to help ppl with there car choices.

Default tc3

The tc3 goes together with very few problems. I would make sure the set screws holding the hinge-pins in are against the pin -I noticed with the graphite hubs the set screw bottomed out on the plastic and the pins were still loose. Make sure to just snug down all the screws-do not over tighten, especially the drive bearing cap screws and the diff screws. One more thing I would do is toss the stock bumper and get a RPM bumper-much stronger.

SO it sounds like you guys are stripping all of your screws.
Should i spend some mony and get titanium or be really carefull?

Here is a cool picture that has nothing to do with the conversation.
