Well, again.. I have one. And it is steel. Next time I dig it out I'll have to take a picture of a magnet hanging from it. Same geometry, same coating as well. Can't speak for all of them across racing, but this one is steel.
Don't see why it's shocking. Steel is great stuff, even on pro racecars.
Yes, aluminum fasteners and threads work in certain applications, particularly if it's a one-time installation. NOT the best call if there is high-torque, repeated on-and-off assembly. Having worked designing and fabricating spaceflight hardware previously, I will say that even then aluminum threads were hardly ever used.. in favor of stainless fasteners and steel thread inserts.
