Questions?? go for titanium screw set or Stainless steel?

some of my screws have been corroded and i am thinking about to upgrade my screw sets, should i go for titanium or stainless steel.
titanium is lighter in contrast to Steel, but does it has the best strength?
i know Stainless steel has the best strength compared to steel. but im not sure about its heaviness.

I like aluminum and titanium screws in the top parts of the car but stick with steel for the under chassis screws.

mugan make and sell there own titanium set of screws for both cars check with mario at speed shop but just stay with the originals they last the longest any way. and to be trurthful you would want to keep the heavier screws in the bottom for any big races the lower the weight in he car the better the car. and replacing it higher in the car it illbe higher any way

Stainless steel can not be heat treated there by makeing it very soft.
Aluminum is also very soft.
Good quality black oxide coated carbon steel is by far the best in critical areas.

I agree and disagree. Yes aluminum is soft and very easy to strip but if used with care and in low stress areas they work perfectly and are very light. All screws that could see any real stress or crash damage are ti or steel.
