    T-maxx screws...

    I want to know if there are screw sets that I can buy for the T-maxx(2.5). Or do I have to specially order them one by one or what? Are there higher strength screws/allen wrenches that are available?

    If I am not careful it's easy for me to strip out a screw. Or the Allen wrench.

    i hear tonys screws (as 08kgraves said) are the best but your local hardware store should have good quality stainless steel screws in the right sizes. for allen drivers, i like losi drivers best.

    yeah but if he keeps stripping them which is easy enough to do on a stock screw even if it is a hex then he is gonna want tony's. plus there way stronger and only like $30

    I don't see the specs on those screws. I would make sure they are 12.9 heat treated..... That's what they use with Tony's screws. I've never had one strip, break, sheer off... Ever...

    Even when my TMAXX was hit by a Chevy S-10 with my lid off going 40+ mph (second gear and about 80% rpms) none of them stripped or sheared, a couple bent. The aluminum stripped, but not the screws.....

    It was only after that horrible day that I really learned how strong those buggers are....
