thanks guys i know i have to cut the posts just havent got to it and the wheel openings too. My painter, Dean of Phat Skeemz Paint was nice enough to trim out the body for me and he love to make the body look good for the photo so he does minimal trim and then i tweak when i am ready to run the body, but thanks again

If you happen to get some weight comparisons that would be great. Ti vs Steel screws, and ti balls vs steel balls. if you happen to have a gram scale handy. If not you can ship me your bits and I can do it for you

I can tell you right now that the comparison between the XRay steel screw and the 3racing or any other ti screw is steel=.6 grams ti= .3 grams per screw

did you factor in the concept that a 6mm countersunk screw may weigh less than a button head? LMAO J/K. So how much total weight savings is there ?

seeing as the 50% form factor might not work considering all the screws are not in fact the same length....

geez dude, you're getting a bit too exact there. a dirty car might counteract that small difference anyway.

i'm also installing a lipo pack and a regulator. i want to use a brass battery tray but i'm trying to source a manufacturer locally first. the ybslow stuff is 60 us delivered which is just too much cash for a peice of brass IMO, although their spools and other stuff looks like good value
