Tony's by far, better quality and won't strip easily like rcscrewz.....

If money isn't a issue, I'd go lunsford screws. My tki2 has luns tit screws throughout and have been awesome. They will last a very very looonnng time. Also, no matter what set of screws you get, I highly suggest you investing in MIP/Thorp hex drivers. Best I've had so far. Just my 2cents

I like steel screws. I never bought Tony's, but I go to A Main and order all the srews from their protech brand. You get like 10 screws fro 2 dollars or whatever. I just load up with all the sizes I use the most and bam. It ends up being cheaper than 45 dollars for a screw kit and you have 20 of each not only a few.

If Trick-Parts makes a kit I would go with them. I have them in my scte and caster buggy and haven't had a stripped out screw yet.

Stainless screws tend to strip out much easier. I'd avoid the RCScrewz set -- they look cool, but WILL strip out. I had a bad experience years ago when I first got started back in RC.

10.9 or 12.9 steel is the way to go. Tony's offers a nice pre-packaged set.

Titanium is nice, but mainly on the top plate where there is lower stress. I wouldn't use them on the high stress areas, especially engine screws and lower chassis screws. Have seen them bend/break on many occasions.

Tony's NO question's asked, He's got Kits for 98% of the cars out there and his hardware is the BEST in the Bizz.
