Default Screws

Anyone ever purchase screw kits from rcscrews?

.rcscrewz.com

I am looking to get a kit or two for my cars. Anyone got some comments on the quality.

I have also purchased screw kits from hexcrews.com There products arent bad, but the heads will strip after awhile. I havent tried the armour plated ones, just the regular ones.

I have had a lot of kits & end up with a lot of screws & my local true value hardware has a lot of screws in stock but I have found out the hard way to use tonys screws on the car & stock screws & hardware store screws go in a seperate emergency only bin.Seems many companys kit screws are acceptable to build the kit with(except hpi,never use those)but strip the hex easily & when they wear(like chassis screws) they are replaced with tonys unless I put those in to begin with depending on my stock.

Galeieo I will not use stainless screws anymore & I cant help you with a rcscrews comment.

I only use them in low-stress areas, don't want to strip a crew half-way into a race.
