Default Strongest screws on the market

Hello,

what screws do you recomend for the XB808 2010 that are tougher to cause stripped heads and corrode?

Thanks

One problem, the stronger the screw, the more likely it is to corrode. Stainless steels tend to be softer.

I always say that but everyone keeps telling me they break easy. I figure Titanium is almost near impossible to break on an rc car. I know its all we used for scale cars.

No, and the Tonys screws did not impress me with their quality. American made grade 12.9 screws are the best. They can be found at McMaster-Carr.

Stainless is too soft for smaller sizes and the hard plastic most of the kits are made with now. They would probably be fine for the large 4mm screws, but thats all I would use them for.

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.
