Fastener Tech - a 13 page electronic version of the tech article BillaVista originally wrote for the second issue of Xtreme Offroad Magazine. In this monster article BillaVista covers all aspects of fastener tech, including answering the following questions:

  • Should I use Grade 5 or Grade 8 bolts?
  • Should I use a bolt or a stud? What's the difference?
  • Lock washer, castellated nut, or Nylock nut - which works better and why?
  • What's the proper method for setting and checking torque?
