There are four holes on the top surface of the Create that are the only way (as far as our team is aware) to secure metal pieces onto the Create. Does anyone know what is the color, length, etc. of the screw that fits into those holes? None of the screws given in this year's kit listed on the parts list seem to be an obvious fit, and we're concerned about stripping the threads off the screws if we try to fit in an incorrect one. If someone could help us out with this, we'd greatly appreciate it.

Well I know in the past we've used the silver colored screws, I'll ask one of my builders for specifics...

My best guess is the "Screw M3 x 14 mm (silver)" found on the fourth page of the "2012 Electronics Kit" PDF... tell me if that doesn't work

Yes I can confirm that the silver screws are correct.
