Default Xray T2's With The Blue Screws ?

Hey,
Ive Seen a fair few Xray t2's with the blue alloy/ titanium ? Screws in photos, Just wondering where i could get these, Or are they screws from the tamiya evo5 ? i have found the evo5 screw kit availiable for 50 usd, but i dont wanna spend that much if only 5-10 screws are gonna work...

Any Help as to what screw kit they are/ or are from, Aswell as links if possible would be great.

Cheers, John

I would guess they are alum screws. Try Fastener Express for all your screwing needs.

dont want to use aluminum screws in the bulkheads!!!!! stay titanium screws. The aluminum ones are to soft they will break off or strip when you try to remove them. Plus 50 bucks for aluminum screws is just stupid

I'm sure the screws he is referring to are alum, casue in 15 years of rc I have never seen blue screws that werent alum. So maybe they are, plus all xray cars before the T2 came with aluminum screws.

i used tamiya screws. i purhased them per pack as needed. aluminium screws are fine. just use 333 loctitie threadlock and always upgrade your 2mm hex driver so it is new. once there is play in the driver/hex head fit i buy a new one. i've never stripped a screw and i have used the same screws in two kits, my fk04 and now my t2.

Square makes screws in blue, purple, and pink.
I'm going to make a pink Xray.

Scroll down a bit. RC-Model HK carries Square parts, but I can't say anything about their service.

Honestly, just go with fastener-express. Unless you like paying more money for the same thing. 25 screws are 5 bucks, compared to something like $4 for 4-6
"hobby brand" screws.
