Default Factory Team blue screws...

Alright, i bought these to replace the black ones on my tc3, i go to replace them, and they are smaller then the stock screws! certain holes need the stock screw instead of the factory team. Is this normal?

was it a full screw kit, check what you are threading the screws into, check your manual

That is not the case with mine. The screws with a tapered head replace the like screws, and the round head screws the same, they should all be 4-40 screws I think. They should all be the same size.

Are you sure they are physically smaller, or are you over tightening them and stripping the threads? If yours are actually smaller you may have gotten the wrong screws for some reason, maybe Nitro TC3? I dunno.

they are the right screws, they are a direct replacement for all the regular screws. And its not that the holes are really stripped, because if they were my original screws wouldnt still thread. O well. these screws are the ones that attach the diff case to the chassis. I might as well just change the casing itself to maybe graphite or something of that nature.

Also, be careful not to over-tighten your new blue screws. The aluminum heads will snap off easily compared to the regular steel screws

If you are using alloy screws I'd suggest running a steel screw in first or tapping the hole with a good 4-40 tap.

I like Stainless Steel screws myself....They don't strip/break as easy, don't chip and look all ghetto and I get them for free
