    Where to buy screws in bulk?

    Hello,

    Does anybody know of a place where I can buy the screws for part No. 4914R in bulk? They are 2.5x18MM

    This is for my electric stampede.

    Thanks!!

    Best bet would be to go to a place like Fasenal or a local fastener place, much cheaper to buy bolts from.

    Per the exploded views, the pins are included in part number 4914R.

    You can buy full-vehicle screw kits on ebay all day for cheap. Most times they are listed for less than the shipping costs (or near). I just ordered 2 complete Pede hex-screw kits for $10.

    I like the RPM on my 2wd


    as for bolts, I would not buy then @ fastenal... they are really overpriced there

    I would buy factory take off sets from ebay, otehrwise --- you end up spending a fortune trying to get factory new in parts package screws

    my local ACE hardware store also has the little metric screws b the piece... I go there a lot when I need a certain screw

    This might be the most used screw size in the traxxas factory. It is a metric 3mm x 12mm screw. 8$ for 100. If ya want to change the length, thickness, or shape of the screw head, go to the left side of the page and click on what you want to change.
    Pick head type, metric, M3(3mm thickness),12mm(length). Alloy/steel are cheaper, but plenty strong for our use with these cars. Hope that helps. Once I figured out the left side of the order screen, ive spent hours looking at all the cool stuff on the site...
