I should elaborate on this, Pure stainless steel is so hard you could never make a screw out of it, so they blend in additives to make the alloy softer but to get the alloy to flow in the molds it becomes to soft to apply torque to the edge of the screw.

The only silver screws worth buying are zinc coated steel and titanium screws but they are not really cost effective.

Myself i run a mix of amuminum, steel and titanium screws(but not on a losi)

just run stock screws and change them when needed - all screws will need to be changed at some point just keep it simple

My reason for changing screws was simply to go metric in the event I purchase a non Losi truggy. I'd only have to buy 1 set of tools that way.

I thought it looked like you were running a counter sunk screw and washer in a picture I had seen and liked the way it looked.
