OK, here is the ultimate set-up for weight reduction:
Aluminum screws(titanium where needed), Hollow magnesium shafts (filled with hydrogen), LiPo receiver pack attached to magnesium plate!

Yes, but alu screws can only be used on parts of the car that dont have load or what the word is :P the screws can break.

so titan screws is maybe my choice.. and titan pivot balls.. but they are expensive i dont think iam gonna install a lipocell not right now.
but it had been fun to test.

Screws in my car are aluminium, and yes the can break, but there is a solution for that... don't crash.....
Titanium screws will also be torn out of the plastic parts in case of a crash, result is the same, your out of the race........

Its best to only apply alu-screwsn above the chassis, if you do it below it will change your center of grafity (I hope this is typed correctly).

Regarding alu and Titan, if you apply alu and / or steel parts on a moving titanium surface it will wear quite hard. (bearings on a titan shaft).
These materials just do not mix on moving parts.

1) Put your steeringrods on top, now they will get disconnected after a collition.
2) Lower your rear shocks to the carbon connection position.

If your circuit has hairpins: install the new lower rear wishbones and make your stabi more flexable.

It looks to me like you switched the front upper steering arms, so left and right are switched.......
Difficult to see, but from this picture I get this idea.

Compare this picture with yours...

The steeringrod connection near your wheels, should be on top.......

Your car need some adjustments if your track has some sharp 180-degrees turns. The rear of your car must be softer than normal in order to prevent the rear end to break out.
