This is where I bought the blue screws:

http://www.fastener-express.com/

IMHO, stay with the Ti screws! If you race, stick with Titanium. I already stripped a few aluminum screws!

Not to mention that the Alloy screws on the bulkheads and upper deck on the EVO4 is just asking for a headache

Ceramic bearings for a start.

I know!
I have two bearings in the rearhubs that are really bad.
I might pick up a new set from Acer.

I got the 950zz ceramics from bocabearings. The rest came from R10 and are Yokomo ceramics. At least doing this on the indoor car released a whole spare set for the outdoor one.

As soon as i got the car i shimmed the diffs and bevel gears differently, there was far to much side to side play in the diff and the bevel gears had a load of play in. First i shimmed the diff so it only have a very tiny amount of side to side play in it so it did not bind up the bearings, then i did the same on the bevel gears. Then i put it all together in a gear case and altered the shimming side to side untill i had a very smooth drivetrain with no binding or back lash in the gears.

The drive train is so free now and shud get even better when the ceramics turn up from Bruce at www.RC4Less.com I ordered them earlier and they have been shipped already, you cannot beat that for service. Even ordered a set for my 415 at the same time as well.

How much is a full set of cheramic bearings at RC4Less? Does it include bearings for the whole car, and are they rubber-sealed?
