My experience with them was not good. The screws are very soft, and the heads strip out like butter, even using good tools. I would hate to see what a cheap set of tools would do to them.

www.hexcrews.com

Those are the two I recommend. Grade 12.9 steel screws, that are very difficult to strip.

Same thing here almost every one I have taken out of my car either stripped the head or the screw was bent I would never use them again . The only good things about them is there shiny and don't rust .

RCscrews are very soft, in addition most of the screws did not fit the application properly. Upon contacting them about fitment issues I was basically told off and had about 5 screws that actually fit.

I have found the same with stainless steel and titanium screws. They are soft, bend and strip easy. I found RTL Fasteners that sells grade 8 screws in RC sizes for a good price in decent quantities.

i bought a full stainless set for a 1/8th truggy and cant say i've used more than about 20 of them.... atm they get used for emergency spares in anything appropriately sized but tend to get replaced afterwards..

but i liked the case they came in
