Hi,
that is incorrect, I have a 8ight 2.0 RTR, and it is imperial, same as the race roller.

you 1.5mm and 2.0mm might come in handy...but for the most part you'll need a set of SAE wrenches.

I use SAE drivers, Hudy or Duratrax depending on amount that size is used, on all cars. The only metric driver that escapes my pit bag is a 1.5mm for the ring collars on the throttle/brake linkage and set screws.

Maybe I'm weird or something? (Hicup) But AE, Mugen, Xray......I allways seem to do better with SAE tools.

its either sae or metric.
SAE (or some call it standard) are sizes measured in inches
metric are measured in millimeters

RBSkrewz offers a stainless steel screw kit that is metric; is this kit worth picking up? I'd like to have one said of wrenches that work on most vehicles.

X2...stainless is By far the worst material for screw's....they are Uber soft and Will strip out in no time....Tony's Screw's are By far the best and aren't any more expensive.

Stainless is uber soft? Perhaps that is just an RCScrewz issue?

Is the Tony's kit metric?

Tony's kit match what the stock hardware is.

ALL stainless steel screw kits are JUNK....too soft for repeated use.

Integra, what hardware did you use to mount your servos? Looks like a clean setup.
