Default Losi 5ive t screw size full kit

I'm wondering if any one know the size and type of every screw used in a losi 5ive t kit. if some one has checked this can you post size head type and number need of each size needed to replace every screw.

One could certainly spend a fortune to save a few ounces buying some ti screws

Dont waste your cash bro. Look up the list that I posted. Its gonna run you about 90 bucks for 100 count of each size bolt. The cost is gonna outweigh the weight savings.

When every gram counts you gotta do what you gotta do.

A couple ounces in screws is meaningless.

The biggest, cheapest, and best place to remove weight is the roll cage and body areas. High on the truck, and you can hack off more than 180 grams for free ;)

Personally, i like just bolting in more power ;)

200$ and a giant hassle. Ti screws strip out so easy it isn't even funny. The way some of these screws in the 5ive need tightened, the heads would be one and done.

I agree. The main thing is the bolts stripping out. When he gets tired of drilling out stripped bolts, the 12.9 black steel will go back in. We can only make suggestions. Its his cash. Ive been using different hardware in automobiles for 25 years, but I cant make him do anything, hes a big boy.
