Yeah I will. Did someone say the floating mounts connect to the hubs or something? I'm searching for a picture.

I have a bunch of them on both my savage and my buggy.
I have the RC Screwz set on one of my R40s and was having the same problem. I called RC Screwz to ask them what was going on. What they told me was that the hex tools and screws manufactured outside of the US (far east) are made slightly smaller. This is because they coverted from imperial units to metric and wern't accurate enough. The tools and screws manufactured in the US are using the correct conversion and are the correct size. If you get a matching driver for the screws, the fit will be correct.

It's looking like most if not all of the stainless screws are being manufactured in the US since you are all having the same problems.

This conversion thing doesn't sound correct to me. Converting from imperial is a really backwards was to do it. Especially in the far east where they are already set up for metric. Whatever the reason, there is a problem. If you call RC screwz they can tell you which brands of drivers fit properly.

I've tried several different brands of hex drivers, duratrax, bondus, hudy, oem, klein.
the screws still strip way to easyly for my taste I'll stick with the hardened steel from now on. the few grams i'm adding onto the car I can live with. I'd prefer the titanium screws but I have no experiance with them yet and i'm still waiting for long term reviews.

looks good but will it fit on the R40?
I noticed that there is an empty hole near the top of each rear knuckle that looks like an attachment point for something similar to whats used on the proceed. my question is how would it attach to the rest of the rear end.
heres a better pic of the rear end of the proceed

I doubt that will fit on the R40 but I am trying to find a pic of the VONERR to see the body mount on that one.

Yeah, that mount will only support itselt on the hubs and nothing else. It may fit actually since the R40 hub has a hole for a floating rear mount.

It looks like the Procede floating mount can be made to fit. You might have to cut down the CF rear shock mount. Seems workable.
