Thanks, Ian/Greg.

Good grief, doesn't it seem a little nuts where shipping is more than the screws? The screws are $6.60 for 4. Shipping is $6.95.

Yes, but if you order 60 screws, it is still $6.95. Remember your dealing with titanium. Very light stuff. $6.95 is the base, lowest shipping costs right now with the USPS.

I use Lunsford screws on all of my cars in all applications. Their "Fat Boy" motor screws and coned washers are the best!!

I don't need lightweight - I'm already adding weight to my car.

I just wanted to get that phillips head screw driver out of my pit box. LOL!

The titanium screws are heavier than the stock aluminum screws.

I don't think I'm adding more than 4 or 5 grams with the copper. Reminds me - OD i have a piece in my toolbox for you to wiegh.

I think it's the new style front end I'm running, also the kingpin and upper turnbuckle are steel and not Ti. I'll get around to that eventually.

You are absolutely correct about the reactive caster front end being heavier than the old school front end. At Vegas I ran the old school and I had to ad a bunch of lead to the car. Now that I have the reactive caster front end, it weighs in at 815 grams. Considerably more.

Of course, that solid copper wire still doesn't help.
