stainless steel is softer than regular steel

so your only other option would be titanium

I have the SS screw kit from RCScrewz. These guys are real professionals, they'll take good care of you! I think the SS screws are much better than the stock screws. I had to do some clutch work, and stripped all 4 engine mount screws. After upgrading to the SS, they don't strip at all. Also, the SS screws seem to thread MUCH better into the plastic than the stockers. Hope that helps!

Default NTC3 Screws

There is no need to waste your money and time with SS screws, they are no better. My advice is for you to purchase METRIC size screws, I know it might be difficult in the US.

The screws are called M3 screws (3mm shafts), the screws are for 2 mm heads. All you have to do it to get the right lenght, get a little longer ones for the diff cases (x4). They will help your screw stripping problem.

This however will not work for screws that are used into metal.
