Default screws

does anyone know of a maker who makes a set of titanium screws specifically for the rrr? and is there a bid difference between titanium and steel?

Default Camber

What does it mean 0G and 1G in the camber setting?
I red 0G refers to standard chassis height and 1G refers to lowered chassis height, but I do not understand what does it mean.
Could anyone help me? Thanks.

0G = Elevated camber ie, droop fully extended

1G = Camber when car is on the ground, the camber will be affected by the ride height

So if I want to set camber with 0G I have to put the car on blocks?

Default Caster

Another question regarding caster.
The out of the box version is very loose. I tried with another 1mm caster clip from my old V1R but then is binding. How did you manage to solve this problem?

Add a small 3mm washer to the hinge pin during construction.

Cheers

The titanium screws are lighter but not as strong as steel. The RRR is underweight as it is you really don't need titanium screws to lighten the car further.

titanium screws tend too round off fairly quickly also, if the car is under weight i wouldn't bother

but if you really want a set

Does any aftermarket company sell anything that could help in removing the bind?
Just flex the bulkheads until the hinge pins slide thru. They are quite flexible.

I tried that and it still binds. I finally just drilled them out with a drill bit that was barely slighty larger then the hingepins by only less then 0.2 mm. No more binding! The arms pivot nice and freely with just barely slight play that, in my estimate, wouldn't affect handling. I did this to the rear lower arms as well since they were binding more than the fronts. Now the suspension geometry will act as they were designed to.
