integy makes a nice wrench set for $27.99 use the right tools is key. dont over tighten things, losi stuff can strip out if ur not careful. and if u can afford it, buy the graphite kit for 75-80$ it's worth it if you'ff be racing the car.

Shrekair, those Integy hex wrenches might look nice but a friend of mine broke the tip of his 1/16" Integy hex wrench, he only had the set for about 5 months. Personally I use the AE hex set and I'm very happy with their quality. MIP, Bolink and Racer's Edge make nice sets too.

Default Integy Tools

Hey shrek,

I say you get what you pay for, that has always been my motto. Im the friend proudwinner is talking about. Actually I have broken 2 tips in less than 5 months. I find their tips to be brittle at best. The AE set for $50 is AWESOME. The two I have broken I have replaced with AE wrenches and these are much better. Thats the way I would go if I had to do it all over again.

i like my set, and i have yet to have a problem. the AE tools are probably really nice then again u could buy two integy sets for $60. i dunno they may suck in the end. i was short on cash and they were shiny. no problems yet. i did snap my MIP 1/16 so i guess any wrench is human??

I use the Dynamite wrenches, but Losi has some sweet wrenches coming out.

Default Parma Combo Wrenches!!!

I use the Parma Combo Wrenches (big suprise-I know). They are so well thought out. For example, you grab the green handle and take off the wheel nuts on your XXXs or TC3 off. Flip it over and its the 1/16th allen. Tighten all of the button and flat head screws on chassis. Grab the gold handle and take off the mini lock-nuts on the shocks. Flip it over and loosen all of the 4-40 socket heads on chassis, loosen the motor clamp, etc.!!! So with just two wrenches you can do almost every maintenenace job on the car!!! The guy at Parma PSE who designed them spent weeks taking aprt and rebuilding cars so that he got the right allen with the right socket!!!

Default Tough too!!

Also-and this is the honest truth!! I have been using them every day on my XXXS, TC3, Rev.3 and my NTC3 for 6-months and have yet to round a tip or break a tip!!! They ALL still fit tight into every allen screw. And there are replacement tips readily avaiilable on line if you did.

got a quick question concerning the Speedtech carbon fiber front and rear shock towers. I had just bought them and noticed two important things. First, the holes for the ball cups are too big.
Next, I noticed that the rear body post wholes are too big and too small. The top one is too big, and the bottom one is too small.

What should I do about it?
