Default Metric or Inch?

Hi guys,

First post on this site,

Just ordered a HoBao RTR Pro st and i was wondering if the nuts and allen head bolts are metric or inch?

Welcome to RCtech forum, Taiwanese manufactured cars are using Metric.

All of my screw sets for the Ofna (Hoboa) cars use metric screws. They are Grade 12.9 black oxide alloy steel socket hex head machine screws.

Best regards,

If I recall the kit covers all of the screws except for those really long bulk head screws. There may also be a cap head or two in the kit that replaces a button head since cap heads are stronger and use a larger hex wrench.

Best regards,

Tony has the best screws on the market....I've been using Tony's screws for a few years now and can't see me changing anytime soon.

+5 for tony.

the only thing he needs is little labels on the baggies that say the screw type and size, I like to leave my screws in the little bags and have about fifteen bags, kinda hard to find the ones I need sometimes, but Tony is easily THE BEST out there.

Thanks for the kind words

On the screw kits I actually put labels on the bags that have the size, type, quantity and kit it came from.

If you buy my individual packs, fold the header tag and slip it into the bag sideways so you can quickly identify the type and size.

Like this (it's an old picture):
