That's what I was thinking next. As I started looking, I found rcscrewz sells a full stainless steel screw kit. I think Imma go that route. Found it on amazon for $69

SS screws are no good.

Correction... SS screws are good for 'some' applications. More so in the Losi than the Baja. I used to be a stainless freak until I started having issues with some fastening areas which see more forces than others and some areas where you're unscrewing them more than others. If you start with stainless screws everywhere, you develop a sense for where SS makes more sense than elsewhere. For the most part, wherever you screw into plastic or a lock-nut, you can use stainless. Areas where this is an exception are the fastening points of the camber turnbuckles where they attach to the shock towers and some of the longer diff housing bolts. Frequently used screws, such as the motor mount screws, a better non-stainless. Play around with different screw types in different applications and you'll find where you can get away with stainless. Another thing to keep in mind when using SS screws is to have high-quality tools with tight tolerances. Cheap tools typically have loose tolerances and are of inferior steel. This will lead to trouble when using softer SS screws.

Don't use the stainless. Get the black oil finish.

Corrosion resistance. Screw it and forget it. Use Korrosion Killer on only the spots that need it--only a few spots on the entire truck.

Get yourself a set of tools from EDS Racing. Its gonna run you about 300 bucks for the set with a pouch. You can pick any 25 tools you want for the set.
