So you are looking to spend a lot of money to save, what?, about 5 maybe 10 grams in a vehicle that weighs over 3kilos!

I'm not sure what car he is talking about but in an MBX5 you can save a lot more than 10grams with ty screws but it will cost you about 60 to 70 bucks to get the screws.

I'd say more like 30g or so would be saved with ti screws.

Just today I tried out a lipo/vr, standard XB8 arms instead of the TQ arms, and a polished Maxpower pipe over a JP2 and saved 90g total.

A few grams here and there adds up quick.

Best place for the screws:
- On the differentials to lighten up the drive lines. The best place to save weight is on the rotating parts.

- On the upper area of the car. To create a lower CG
