Default RC Screwz Stainless Steels

I would like to know if these stailess steel screws are worth or better to stick with the OEM set. do they strip easily? or hold their shape?
Im looking for the JAMMIN CR1 screw set.

Thanks for your help

OEM are better than they are, if you want a good set go to http://www.tonysscrews.com

Imaxx is spot on. I can tell you the tonys screw kits are definately worth it. That is the route I would go.

I HAVE NEVER HAD PROBS WITH RC SCREWZ IN MY LOSI 8IGHT. BUT MY DAD JUST PUT A KYOSHO ST-RR TOGETHER AND PUT ALL TONYS SCREWS IN AND THEY WERE PRETTY DECENT. BUT SOME OF THE HEADS WERE F*C*ED UP AFTER A FEW TIMES BUT EVERY SCREW HAS IT WEEKNESSES

I have tried several different screws out there...As said above, They all have problems at one time or another. I have been using Rc Screwz for a long time and they hold up just as well as the others. Most important thing is to make sure your tools are kept in good condition. Havin a rounded hex tip will strip a screw quicker than anything.

One more thing to add, make sure you clean all the dirt out of the head before hand. You will be less likley to strip the head out. And also high quality tips are a must have!!!

RC Screwz heads strip easier that Tony screws. Also , they will bend on stressed or crashed areas. I have slowly removed them from my cars that I purchased used when I tear them down for service. The only thing is that the RC Headz screws don't rust.

I would avoid RC Screwz like the plague. They are just not a reputable company. They also used to, and maybe still do, run a hobby shop. A couple of years ago they tried to sell me a used Xray as new. I also ordered a few other items from them, and one of the spur gears they tried to re-package as new, but was used.
