You can do all these, the screw kits from tonys and rc skrewz are stainless(lighter weight) screws but tend to be a lil softer/weak because the metal. Try Ebay you can normally find the people who part the kits out and sell the screws in bulk for cheap.

I think you are mistaken. Tonys stuff is not stainless.

Buy the tony's screw set, no comparion to the rc screws set.

I baught the Tonys screw kit and found they rust very quickly, I thought they were high grade alloy, what's the go there. Definitely are a lot harder than the oe screws though.

check trick-parts.com

So far I've had great luck with them, they are very high quality and stainless steal as well. I have yet to strip one out.
