These guys make screw kits in grade 12.9 and plated. I have not used them, but this would be the best way to get some corrosion resistance and have strong fasteners! They are still almost $60.00 without shipping, not cheap.

If strength is what you are after, listen to this guy. They don't get any better than that.

ive been using tonys screws for years without any issues, i also use mugen titaniums screws for non stressed areas. best combo for strength and weight reduction.

Ti isn't actually very strong in regards to our small hardware.....they actually Snap under load where as 12.9g will take the beating and come back for some more.

Hex screws with the plating are the best I have used but they don't come in button head,only counter sunk and cap head.

Tony's srews are great.Great quality and a complete kit.

I have used a few other and I was breaking screws on the track and stripping heads out with one use in the shop.Screws hold the car together so quality is a must.

So I guess I will go with Tony's as I can see there are many positive responses.

Thanks!

Default The Armor-Plated difference

[QUOTE=Jaap;8044144]Whats the difference between this two set of screws:

hexcrews.com/xrayxb8hexheadsconversionkit.aspx
hexcrews.com/xrayxb8hexheadsapconversionkit.aspx


Hey Jaap, the difference between those two kits is the AP. That's the Armor Plating. It's a nickel coating they do on their 12.9 grade screws so it gives them added grip and corrosion resistance. They're the best screws on the market in my opinion.

I use either stock or Tony screws. It's kinda likethe guys that were saying my wrapped bodies add soooo much weight to the car. That's funny stuff. I doubt even one of the 3 ryans can tell the difference. I do like to use titanium in the diffs to free up the rotating mass as much as possible. Can I tell a difference... Nope its all between my ears.
