Default Replacement screws and nuts

Where would be a good place to order replacement screws including titanium?

Ummm...standard or metric?

What car as some manufactures offer Ti kits for their cars?

For instance, Corally offers a TI screw kit for their RDX. I don't have it but I am sure it's the same quality as the rest of the car...the best!

In the past for Metric Ti screws, I have always used Tamiya screws. They are o the highest quality, not terribly expensive and they come in all shaps and sizes. I bought the Tamiya Ti screws off of ebay for my RDX and it actually cost me round $60.00 to do the entire car and that includes several ectra of each size left over for spares.

I have tried misc. sets from several different RC stores (won't mention names as they are supporters of this site) and had bad experiences with all of them. The screw heads didn't sit flush with the chassis, the heads and allen keyed parts were off center and the Ti was a dull silver color...not at all even close to being acceptable...maybe I got a bad set who knows, but I've never had bad experiences with Tamiya or Lundsford.

fastener-express.com has the best prices and selection of screws and what not. They don't have titanium, but they're stainless steel screws are great.

www.tonysscrews.com has great screws, not titanium though. Much stronger than the RCScrewz.

If you need anything stronger than RCScrews, you really need a new hobby!

As jeffb said, Lunsford.com and racing-cars.com (titanium racing) both sell metric ti screws. I have ordered from lunsford for years and had no problem with them and usually get my order within 3 days or less.

Strong, yes. But they bend easily.

I ran an nitro on-road with that, I break the chassis (really break into 2 pieces) on the spot near the screw hole after hit , My Hexscrew hs no damage at all (no scratch, no bent, mush stronger then any screw I had tried) It is not some cheap alloy chassis, it is a 3mm 7075 t6
