You cannot say standard when those tools are not used by 204 of the 207 countries around the world

If three hex-wrenches and two nut-drivers are what puts your pitgear over the edge you are, quite simply, carrying around way too much useless stuff.

I don't burden myself with all the amenities necessary to go TC racing, and have always run 12th scale and WGT cars that utilized standard hardware, so for me there is no issue.

Default Two Haulers not enough

Soooo, what you are trying to say is if I can't fit all of my stuff in TWO rolling haulers, I may have a problem!?!

Well gentlemen let the healing begin.

Hello, my name is Mel, and I have an RC addiction.

As an owner of CRC 1/12 and 1/10 pan cars and currently waiting with bated breath for their wtf! I find that it isn't the tools that are the problem. It's the sorting out what size of balls I have in my hand when trying to rebuild my diff and the diff screws and what not that I have to tell apart. (You can tell I have rubbish eye sight and even worse inventory filing system here ) One system to bind them all would be nice.

Seriously? How hard is it to stay organized?



SAE on the left, metric on the right.

And all that hardware, how does he do it?! (4mm bullet for scale.)



There's all kinds of reasons to choose a car, but SAE vs. metric has got to be one of the most ridiculous

Wow, Two haulers? Mel, you do indeed have a hoarding issue.

You forgot to say that one is using the widely spread metric standard and the other one will be the only Formula 1 rc in the world using SAE standard
