I use aluminum screws in aluminum parts all the time. The trick is not to overtighten them and don't use 10 gallons of threadlock. If you do regular maintanence on your cars you shouldn't have any problems using aluminum screws in aluminum parts. You can't just screw everything together and then forget about them.

I got a set of those housings a while ago. I didn't like them. The bearing slots were sloppy. I had to cut on one side of the housing and build up CA to fix the side that was to large. They are also heavy compared to the stockers. The only thing I liked was they looked pimp on my BMI chassis.

THEY ARE HEAVY WHICH DOES NOT ADD ANYTHING BUT MORE DRAG AND MORE WORK FOR YOUR MOTOR TO PUSH ALONG THE TRACK........
When I had my TC3.....seems like ages ago now...
I did the hole blue up everything...all it did was slow my lap times down...
If you are more interested in the Bling Bling factor...Kool those are right up your ally but if you race...You are better off with the grafite ones and some Titanium screws...Those aluminum ones just like to strip too much for my liking..

I was thinking of them just for the bottom half in the front and then use the graphite setup in rear and graphite top case with the alum bottom in front. Mainly because no more stripped screws. Not sure what a stock FT TC4 weighs in at nowadays since I have not weighed the car.

Were they the exact same as those ones ?
If so, Are you saying I would be better off not getting them ?
