Those are a bit too heavy for my tastes. I like to keep the ends of my suspension as light as possible.

I picked-up a box of 100 8-32 serrated flange nuts at www.mcmaster.com (for NTC3) for around 7 bucks delivered. P/N 94831A005.

I use the Kyosho ones. If a wheele comes off now, the axle will still be attached to it!

Most steel ones weigh over 1 gram to 1.5 grams. Where mine weigh as much or less than one.

Im all about weight savings as well the area its saving weight to me seems more crucial.
