Questions?? rc screws?

Hey I know that there are a couple of companys that make screw kits for each buggy but I think that they are very pricey for what they are really. Does anybody know where you can pick up some screws for way less money? Or have any good ideas?

Rc Screws are stainless steel which is really soft material

A big X2, Stainless is the Last thing you want as they WILL strip at the worst possible time forcing you to bust out the dremel and get to work.

Yeah you forsure can't compare stainless to 12.9 .. what's the market on some strong light titanium sets? I was thinking about starting something ..I work for a fastener company and have the resources to do any kits anyone else is selling.

Big in onroad, less in offroad.

Onroad, every screw in the top of my car is Ti or Al.
