Anyway, for the chassis, I used normal M3 countersunk screws. Not self tapping ones. Not many though. I used on the mid bearing block and the battery mount tabs.
Yep, all M3s were replaced, I went through the manual and replaced all I could find.
I think that as the M3s are so small, even the steel screws carry very little weight, therefore replacing 40 screws, or so, can only bring small advantages

Ok, first things first... Are you sure they were titanium screws you replaced in the first place?

As excuses go, pretty damn lame I must admit
Actually there are some very good english beers, but there isn't one which is so unique like the wheat beer (Weizen or Weissbier) If you find a good beer shop in your area, try one!! The most popular mark is from the Erdinger brewery - but is one more for the tourists

When I get back to good old Germany, I'll install my engine and servos and let you know what the final weight is - then we can compare and see how the weights correspond
