    According to newest Lucas rules I can find, it isn't. Suspension section says no titanium fasteners.

    https://panchosracingproducts.com/ has them on the front page...... unbelievable. Rule book clearly states No titanium chassis or suspension components and No titanium fasteners. Cheatin s$$holes driving up the cost of the sport for no reason

    Yeah. It's around 55% the weight of equivalent steel. And, it's notch sensitive, so you won't get away with incorrectly putting threads in the shear plane, like you can with steel. It helps, but it's not cheap. It better imo to machine bolt heads to min height and to drill them, if you have the equipment.

    I do like titanium lug nuts because aluminum ones are trash.

    I have seen some hollow titanium bolts that are 40% the weight of steel, not sure of the strength though!

    Price was pretty economical without even getting into bulk buying!

    Ti6-4 is similar tensile strength to grade 5 steel. However, fatigue is reduced, especially if threads are cut vs rolled.

    I can't believe Titanium bolts are even making it into late model racing. We have a weight rue and most cars are bolting lead in anyways. I would skip the Titanium bolts and also skip that extra cheeseburger and fries from the food stand.

    Don't know about bolts but Gorsuch sells a set of 20 titanium lug nuts for $250. How much weight does that save? A couple of ounces? I'd rather buy a new tire and a nice steak and lobster dinner out...as long as it's not takeout.

    I run a set of TI lugs because they last forever, don't gall the lug holes on the wheel, and save a little weight.

    Or you can run aluminum, replace all the time, and damage a wheel a little with every time you torque it.
