When it comes to racing, every little bit of competitive advantage translates to a performance gain over your competitors on the track. It is a known fact that a lighter car is a faster car. STRC’s titanium screw kits will now help reduce the weight of your Tamiya onroad cars, especially those heavier tub chassis cars like the TB04 and the TA05-06 series cars. Double deck graphite cars can also benefit from the weight reduction to bring the vehicles closer to the new 1380g minimum weight now in Touring Car racing. Also included are light blue anodized lock-nuts to complete the kit.
