You want the soft low quality items everybody is using go whatever manufacturer you like. Square make some TB03 sets. You want high quality TiAl64V grade titanium you may want to look at Litemodz, Lunsford or Acer.

Lunsford are the best Titanium screws you are going to get for RC cars. They are basically awesome. And you will pay for their awesomeness.

Yeah, Lunsford is the one to get and as long as CRC uses standard screws, I will have a use for them.

I would avoid the Acer ones. I've found the hexes to be an inconsistent depth; some are so shallow they're almost useless as you can't put any force into tightening them.

You go want grade 5 though (TiAl64V) which just leaves Lunsford (expensive) or Litemodz (vaporware).

I am a big Tamiya RC fan, except when it comes to their titanium screws, too soft, the hex heads strip easily.

Tamiya is not the end of the world, they are just soft. As you tighten down the hex screws repeatedly, the hex's in the screws will deform and eventually have a tendency to strip.

Just be certain to seat the hex driver completely into the screw, and if the hex in the screw starts to deform, replace the screw sooner than later.
