Either GSRACING.COM or FASTENER-EXPRESS.COM for blue screws...they match the Tamiya blue great!

To my knowledge Tamiya doesn't make blue screws.

I went with Lunsford turnbuckles.

My TI screws are... errr... titanium colored.

I'm sure you'll all be very happy to know that I -did- in fact get my diffs built and installed last night, before passing out...

Tamiya makes aluminum blue screws.

I have a dumb questions.

On a TA05 the motor mount is metal and it is positioned in the middle of the car. When the batteries rest against the motor mount, won't they short out when you put power to the motor?

I'd stick to the GS Racing or Fastener-express screws. I think Fastener- express has packs of 100 blue screws for 16 bux.
