    Funny how we all seem to have different "favorites". Guess it all depends on one's experience. Me, I found that phillips would strip out too easily. Unless you know you have a #2 phillips screw and you use a #2 phillips driver (which I think is very hard to eyeball) you're gonna strip the sucker. For that reason, I hate phillips, and I find that hex heads don't do that, providing that you have a good, un-rounded, hex driver. ANY fastener on the bottom of a car is gonna need dirt dug out of it before using the appropriate driver.

    Hate to resurrect an old thread, but I had to come back.....not two days after I posted here, I went out to work on my car, and the first hex screw I went to take out with my hex driver stripped out! D'OH! Had to go get the dremel and carve a slot in it to get it out. I need to get some better drivers I guess.....

    How's.... I forgot to mention, I use to have a HPI E10 and swapped all the screws I could with the HPI alloy purple screws....

    Now they are easy to strip... All it takes is a slightly worn hex driver

    Dot olive oil on them and wait a couple of minutes if they give you problems,my screws are titanium so I dont have to put up with that anymore.

    the things you have to do to have an E10 not break from normal running lol
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    Lol, I know right..... It's not that bad tho.... Not as bad as the B10 from what I've heard. But the e10 does use a different chassis, diff housings, etc etc.
