I'd buy a set, Phillips strips out much too easily.

There is no such plan at this moment. There are plenty of titanium hardware suppliers, please check with those.

Don't buy the ones from GPM. They use the stock philips head, and are made from a softer material and strip easily. The atomic/egr ones use a philips. :D

See my post in the wieght reduction thread at this forum.
I make a tubular carbon fiber drive shaft that weighs about 1/3 the weight of the original kit part. Hand fitted ends reduce throttle response time. Lower center of gravity. Looks killer. email drbanner@sysr.com for more information or photos.

I've tried the Atomic Titanium screw set and wasn't impressed...

The screws are not the same length as the XRAY originals they should replace. They were nearly all shorter and I definately wouldn't use them in my M18 race car.

Furthermore I had some problems finding suitable HEX wrenches in my collection of Hudy mm wrenches, so its probably Inch size. (Or very imprecise mm hex holes)

Well, there are now ten carbon-fiber tubular drive shafts in service on our local race track and one in sunny California. They are all in as made condition after a few weeks of racing and some heavy duty horse-play. All of the prostocks at our local track that have one are in great shape. Fully satisfied racers so far...
---
One local racer has run the shaft with a speed 300 and has not had a hint of trouble. The car has even been heavily walled and the shaft is keeping the wheels screaming!
We'll keep you all posted.
