2012 car comes with black ozide coated Steel Screws like previous kits. The stock hardware is fine. Use a reasonably fresh 2.0mm tool like hudy, mip or any of the majors and you will be fine. I had to add 30+ grams of ballast to get my car up to legal weight, no sense in buying aluminum, ti or stainless.

If you want some bling chuck the screws in a dremel, polish with scotch brite pad and then buff on towel. More bling add metal polish for last step.

Thought as much. I meant to say "cant see them changing"

I totally agree, the xray screws are very good!

Does anyone know where to get torx head 3mm countersunk screws? My used T3 came with a few, and I would like to get a set for all the bulkhead connections.

Yep, me! tried every oil thickness you can think of, none are thick enough, use cleaning putty to bog down the gears, its not got as much pull out of the corners as a spool but a little easier on the drive train and easier to drive, you need to try it for yourself to know if you like it or not.

So I already stripped out 3 screws and I thought it would be my allen wrench but that's not the case. I bought a new allen wrench and it happend with the other screw. I don't know if they changed out the screws in the 2012 kit to Alum? What would you recommend if you bought new screws, would you stick with the stock Xray screws or go with another brand?

Cant understand why you are having a problem, I had one screw so tight that I had to hold the 2mm allen key in a pair of 9" molegrips to get enough purchase to get it out but it did come out.

What driver are you using?

If you are stripping the kit screws...there is a possibility you are trying to overtighten. These aren't nitro cars, you don't have to donkey strong all the screws, just get them snug. Just saying...it might possibly be the problem. I've never had a problem with a single screw on any car. The kit screws are definitely steel.
