Here's the official count from my Ti Screw set. Champ RC was kind enough to provide an itemized list!

Countersunk:
19 3x8mm
12 3x10mm
6 3x12mm
1 3x23mm

Button Head:
28 3x8mm
8 3x10mm
1 3x12

If you want the CF Damper Stays, you will need 4 more 3x12 button screws for the ball connectors.

There are 4 2.6x8mm button screws that are used to screw down the spur cover, obviously they won't come in aluminum.

There's also a 3x15mm button screw to fasten the servo, but the head is very low profile to not stick out the bottom of the chassis. I just left that one alone. Not sure if you could use a countersunk instead, I haven't tried..

I guess you guys aren't talking about the "Macross Zero" version ?

Car package came with a one-way and swaybar set so I used those too.

Car felt good in stock, although I can literally see your car (BD?) and BRuff's RDX exit out of the corner slightly faster. Might be the weight difference. Hoping to run mine in 19t this Sunday.

Mike... just make sure to show up at TCS then. It should be fun.
Thanks Ian, but I thought you had the new shock towers too?

Hey, I read that on this thread. You posted it

I'm still building mine but I think it will be done for Sunday. I don't having any hopups for it yet. Steve still hasn't received any from Tamiya so my car will be bone stock.

Quite good plot, Nice love story and SOLID CGI graphics ! quite different from your old school "Kill all zentraidi" Macross ...just "Bird pple" and "Fish pple" and 1 nasty Birdman

Okay, back to the TA05, anyone won any major competition with it yet ?

Geez eeyan, you must be getting old. That was the first thing I noticed. But then again, you're married with a youngster now.
