Default Stainless screw set?

Awhile back i picked up one of those rc screwz kits and their garabage,just stripped one on my motor mount(thats gonna be fun)it takes all of about 10lbs of pressure to strip the heads out on these.Does anybody know of a different manufacture,with a little more nickle in there?Thanks

I have the SS screws (the hex ones) from RC Raven, and I really dont like them. Every screw is machined with very thin thread, and most of the ones except for TVP use on our trucks arent, that just means more twisting and wasting away of my joints. I paid $27 for a box of them too. Now the whole thing sits in my tool box[&:].

I don't Recommend Going With RC Ravens, they are cheap soft mettle and strip really easy.
The Best screw sets are Tonys Screws, as azzman Mention above.
And RC Nuts are also good.

Phillips head screws suck worse than stainless cap screws

If you have quality tools, and you use the proper size, a good quality steel screw won't strip out.
