Does anyone know if they offer another screw kit for the FK'05. I think I heard something about black screws that were stronger? Anyone...

titanium is lighter and strong. I use them and haven't had a problem with them.

Hey guys I dont like the fact that the old silver screws kinda bonded to the carbon fiber in the chassis. Thats why alot are stripped out.

Would the titanium or stainless steels screws not do this?

Also the prices are $47 for the titanium and like $18 for the stainless steel. Is the titanium worth it?

What I do to minimize the screw locking issue is put some ca on a Qtip and put a light coat of glue in the countersunk holes in the bottom of the chassis. I haven't had any problems since I started doing that to my cars. As far as the prices go, that's your call. If you go to santioned events which have a weight requirement, you'd probably have to add weight. The steel screws would probably be better because the extra weight is about as low as you can get it. For club racing, I like the weight savings that the Ti screws give me

Default New to Onroad set-up

I am about to dip into the onroad scene and bring my T1R out to a parking lot race. I am in the process of setting it up using my HUDY set-up board..however I am having trouble lowering my rear ride height to 4.5mm. I have all the preload off the shocks and it won't go below 7.5mm. I have the shocks mounted on the middle of the rear tower and outside on the arms...what am I over looking?

Thanks in advance.

sounds like the lowwer spring purches are sitting to high on the lowwer shock mount (eyelet) I would get some FK ones and try that. why are you trying to get 4.5 ride hight for the rear ??? Thats to low for outside parking lots.

The spring retainers even in the Factory Kits, for some reason, still don't allow you to go much lower than 6-7mm. You have two options: a) if you want your car to look trick, pick up some Team Tamale spring retainers b) pick up a set of Associated spring retainers.

Either option will allow you to lower your ride height to where you want it.
