Can't believe the quality and service, the screws are a really nice matt black finish, and are one of the highest tenstile stregths possible, he has separated the kit into induvidual zip bags with the thread size and length printed on the front of the back, this is the most important thing as it so easy when refering back to the manual for srew length, no measuring....and all for only $26 and $6 P&P to UK.

The last screw kit i got was a stainless hex screw kit, and they were all jumbled in a pill box, and the screws weren't that strong, head were really soft.

Just wanted to share with you guys, and pass on this recomendation, and however posted the link in response to my question for these screws, thank you, very pleased.

I guess these screws are an alternative to titanium as they are all hex screws and less chance of stripping them.

Are they lighter than the standard screw set?

Standard Kyosho screws use phillips head as opposed to hex.

Do you mean to apply a 5.5mm lock nut?
I thought you were talking about adjusting the rear camber.

Which brand is better (price is similar):

- From Pro Shop Futaba (Square @ 4500yen)
- RCMart (Atomic @ $40USD http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=10378)

Also, I could not find any info on the Kyosho K.R.F Multi Tyre Setter from Pro Shop Futaba for 15120yen. Anyone know where I can get info on this? What other tyre truer's are available?
I would only recommend using titanium screws in locations where they do not get used often and where they fasten into plastic.

I was thinking the opposite. As the engine mount gets removed more than other parts I didnt want to strip the screws because you do them up quite tight. I guess its better to remove the motor from the engine mount rather than the engine mount from the chassis??

I also got titanium hex screws to bolt the engine to the engine mount as stripping them will be a massive headache.

Doesnt titanium hold well with metal part?

I agree with you. I had a bad experience with using titanium screws on aluminum parts before. The titanium screws tend to snap when over tightened on aluminum parts Just sharing my experience

most of the titanium (atomic and kyosho) is fairly poor quality compared to the high strength titanium that most of you are thinking of but very light and well suited to low stress items.

titanium also has some kind of reaction with other metals and heat causing it to seize easily as well making it a poor choice for the motor mount.

lunsford has some high quality stuff

OK, Ill take out the titanium screws from the engine mount and used stock ones and make sure not the strip it!!

Do Kyosho sell standard screw set for RRR?

What about 3racing titanium screws? Has anybody tried them out?
I 've been using them for a long time, having replaced all other screws (except the motor mount ones) and the car is a lot lighter (1680 grams, all but fuel included).
Of course I have changed many parts to the 3racing hopups (titanium or carbon) and this has an effect to the over all weight as well.
Never had any stripping issues. I must say that instead they fit perfectly, especially with the other 3racing parts.

Haven't really tried using the 3racing screws. My friend had a bad experience using 3racing parts especially on the drivetrain areas and the engine mount... So, I ended up buying the Kawahara and Kfactory Option parts for my kit
