Default aftershock 8e cast alum steering link

how do the new cast steering links hold up...would i be better off grabbing one of the stainless steel ones instead? Or should i go cast so i get the other updated steering parts that come with it.

Im pretty sure they aren't stainless, they say stainless for some stupid reason, but i ordered some hop ups that said stainless, and they were aluminum (which i Prefer to stainless). But the metal steering parts hold up better than the plastic ones, but they still need to make some metal bell cranks for them, Ive been blasting them with emails about it and have never got a response

Just get some stainless or titanium screws for the aluminum stuff. The cheap black screws the cars come with bend and break, then your buying new parts 'cause you cant get the broken screw out.
