Default 3 racing titanium screws

Has anyone tried 3 racing titanium screws? They are very cheap, I was wondering if they are good quality?

Yes and if they are the Eagle brand there even worse. I have used both and would have been better off with a quality aluminum screw. I have other experiences with other ti 3Racing parts and all I can say is stay away from there ti. There aluminum stuff has been VERY GOOD.
If you want Ti screws and I'm NOT trying to pimp...Mugens are the best I have found bar-none.

I tried some and they seemed softer than my steel tamiya screws.

Ive used them ...
They are ok and do the job but...
1. The driver aperture was a little oversized.
2. There was no significant weight saving.

The ti screw kit should be half the weight of the stock steel screw kit.

If they are soft, then they aren't actually titanium

I find the Tamiya ones to be rather soft as well. Haven't yet tried the 3Racing ones.

the 3racing works quite well, i havent stripped one head yet, and they are lighter than steel screws.


im using hudy tools, and they fit the screws very well. if you are stripping the heads it mught be because of the tools, there are some differences in one from another.

The ones I got the hex holes were all over the place and not central to the head of the screw. I think its a case of you get what you pay for with them.

One word: Lunsford
Sure, high price but they last. Got a few that are five years old, no stripping or breakage.

Yup, exactly what I was trying to infer.
