Thomas - Try this website and see if you can get stuff from them. They have complete sets for all of the cars. I used their screws when I ran a Losi XXXS and really needed to shave weight. Hope this helps.

Default Thanks Greg

Hi Greg,

Thanks for the info!

I haven't ran titanium screws on my Xray. I have had to add weight to get it legal. Hope this helps.
The titanium screws for use in my X-ray are not to save weight, but to get better screws.

I haven't used any locktite and still I cannot get the screws untitened.
I have heated the bulkheads, tried grip-ex, but nothing worked.

The only thing that happened was that I stripped some heads.
I want to replace my stock screws for titanium ones so this won't happen again.

Hey Greg,

What do you think about PRS pinions and spurs?

Do you run 48 or 64 pitch in your cars?

How do they compare to other gears on the market?

Tornado Racing - I am using the 64 pitch PRS spur gears and pinions. The quality is amazing. I have been using the same one for the last two months and it is just now starting to show wear. Best I have ever tried.

Greg,

I've been testing a lot down in Florida for the Worlds. I was wondering a few things.

1) you think you will stick with a spool? or use a one-way

2) what were your observations going from 40wt to 30 wt between the Reedy Race and the KO race? I know you used different tires so I don't know how much that affected your decision. I know that 40wt with 3 holes has the same static feel as 30wt with 2 holes, just wondering what you noticed on track.

3) standard chassis/topdeck or 3.5mm chassis?

Jeff

Are you like me, and think Ayrton Senna was the best driver ever?
