Default Hiro Seiko Screw Kit for VBC D07

I am looking to order a Hiro Seiko Ti/Aluminum screw kit for VBC D07. Does anyone on here have any experience with them and where do you suggest purchasing them online? I am also open to alternatives if anyone has any input on that. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Fantastic quality screws.

You need to treat the alloy ones with care (that's the case for all alloy screws, don't overtighten) but their titanium ones are definitely stronger (possibly heat treated better?) than other brands.

I bought mine from hiro seiko direct.

Thank you for the feedback! Because they are a foreign company, did it take long for shipping/customs, etc?

no. not at all.

I just went to their webpage to the "contact us" link and went from there.

they may direct you to a local reseller - they are not that easy to get where I am.

I would never put an aluminum screw on any rc car. Just begging for problems imo.

On a TC it's fine.

Off-road buggy, perhaps not so smart.

Certainly do sell both. The alloy ones are lighter. Everything is a compromise though.

And they don't advocate using aluminium on places like the lower deck either.

Top deck. Bulkheads. No dramas. Well, not for me anyway.

Thanks Eric! I think my buddy Ryan recently got some things from you. We actually work together. I will get together with him too because we are both looking for screw kits for our B5M factory lites as well.

Thank you for the input. I think I am going to stick with the factory steel screws on the lower decks of both of my vehicles but use the Ti and Aluminum screws everywhere else.

Will reply back to your email now. I also have the B5M kits in stock in all titanium which is all I would recommend for off road.
