New from X Factory:
Brian Kinwald and X Factory are proud to announce the newest addition to the Dirtz Dialed Partz line, a torx screw kit to fit the X – 6 Squared, X – 60, and SCX – 60. Brian says, “I’ve used torx head screws on all my cars for over ten years now. They are really dialed on the flat heads under the chassis.”
Torx screws are much less likely to strip out and the drivers don’t wear as much either. In some situations, this allows more torque to be applied than with a regular hex head. In other applications, especially on flat-heads coming up from under the chassis, torx screws are easier to remove and rarely strip.
The new kit contains 50 total 4-40 torx head screws, the correct size for almost every screw used on the X – 6 Squared – a few sizes are not available from the supplier. They have been shipped already to X Factory dealers all over the world, and are available on the X Factory web site now.
Another great thing about torx screws is that cap head and flat head use the same driver, T-10. Therefore, you can do most work on the car with just one driver, a real convenience in a crowed pit space.
Dirtz Dialed Partz also sells packs of the individual torx screw sizes including several sizes not needed in the X – 6 Squared kit. D.D.P. also has the two drivers needed, T-8 and T-10. These drivers are a larger size to fit the hand and have vinyl grips for comfort. Individual screws and drivers are available at your X Factory dealer and through the X Factory web site.
