Default Are you willing to upgrade the car screws?

Hello!
I would like to do a survey! We are willing to upgrade titanium screws???
Titanium screws can make the car reducing weight, adjust the perfect balance and weight of the frame! Meet the minimum weight of the car!


I were compared for a number of different types of screws.
Ordinary steel screws/Pure titanium screws/Titanium alloy screws/Aluminum alloy screws(Mainly to 7075)


Hardness
Titanium alloy screws>Ordinary steel screws>Pure titanium screws>Aluminum alloy screws


Weight
Ordinary steel screws>Titanium alloy screws>Pure titanium screws>Aluminum alloy screws


Price
Titanium alloy screws>Aluminum alloy screws≥Pure titanium screws>
Ordinary steel screws

I have done the weight between the three kinds of screws!
Ordinary steel screws/Pure titanium screws/ Aluminum alloy screws

If the weight of an ordinary steel screws 10g, Pure titanium screws weight 45% only 5.5g, Aluminum alloy screws weight 55% only 4.5g


These are just my own point of view! Hope everyone exchanges exchange!
I come from China, and perhaps some language problem!
Please understanding!

Thank you!

I run steel screws because I don't sweat the difference in weight. I prefer ultimate durability with minimum price. Aluminum screws a PITA for stripping the hexes.

Your English is better then my Chinese, I have the same questions as you but my hang up price of titanium screws. I have considered using aluminum screws on the top tray. Every where else it would have to be titanium screws. I need some sources for screws for options but,RSD has titanium screws but they sell them in groups of 4 if they would sell replacement screw kits for popular models it would help! (hint hint)
Removing weight especially high weight is always good!

Default Screws

I think one other thing needs to be considered and that is how often the fastener will need to be removed. To go hand in hand with this is the type of tool required. If you have a screw that rarely needs to removed and/or replaced, then aluminum Philips heads are fine. If something like a motor screw which has to be loosened and tighten constantly, then a steel or titanium hex head is better. We all know that titanium is more expensive, but for some applications the expense is worth it. If you look at the old pan cars and even the original RC 10, they used a lot of Philips head aluminum screws through the chassis. Aluminum is not that expensive, but if it is a little rounded REPLACE IT! These are my thoughts about it.

I used to switch most of the screws in my cars out to aluminum. As long as you have a good wrench set and don't over tighten then you can remove them a lot and not have to worry about them. But that was all back in the nickle battery days as back then almost every car was over weight. These days with lithium batteries pretty much all cars are under weight so there is no longer a need for lighter screws. So if I were going to swap screws out now I would probably go with stainless steel because they don't rust like the normal steel ones do.

If you offered a full titanium screw set with allen heads for the f104v2 I would order it now.

Aluminium bolts strip too easily and titanium are too expensive and a poor value. The kit stock parts are just fine.
