Default Drive Cup grub screws

Does anyone know the size of the drive cup grub screws for my monsoon.

The manual doesn't have a part number for the screws, and searching the redcat site, I found M4*4 grub screws (02099) and M3*3 (86081) grub screws.

I think its the M4*4, but I want to make sure.

thanks

You know, I was thinking about taking all the hardware from my project Hurricane to my local fastener supply store to be identified and I never got around to it. I was going to make up a list and go with stainless fasteners.

I even thought about putting together a little kits in case anyone else wanted one.

I guess it will have to wait.

Thanks ehroof !


I tried going down to my local hardware store, but the only grub screws they had were not metric. Pretty strange if you ask me though since I am in Canada

ANyways, I'll order the M3*3 to replace mine.

Just curious, but what are the M4*4 used for? I don't see any larger grub screws on both my 1/8 (earthquake, monsoon) or 1/10 (tornado) redcats. I do however see a smaller where the pipe is secured to the wire hanger.

errr....so now I'm confused.

The one you replaced, was it on a 1/8? or should I try to find a 5mm since the monsoon is a 1/8th?

Thanks

hmmm so it is 5mm.

I don't see any on the redcat site.
I guess they don't have those?

I may have to go to another hardware store and try out their grub screws.

LOL....I was getting so confused when I was reading this, but now it all makes sense since you missed the part where I put MONSOON

Since redcat doesn't carry these, I guess I will try to find it somewhere else.
Thanks for the help!

Try this... saw them advertising when I was reading this post!




Edit:

Cool... I think I'll change out all the countersunk phillips-head screws on the bottom of the chassis with [link=http://rtlfasteners.com/RC/z.html]Hex's[/link]
