Default Hex Wrench Size for 8ight T 2.0?

I need to get some new wrenches for my 8-T 2.0, and I'm wondering what size I need.

Should I get 2.00mm or 5/64?

3/32 or some other size?

I know these general sizes are the most common ones on the truck, and I already have 1/16 and 0.50mm.

Thanks!

Mainly, I use: 5/64" and 3/32". For the smaller stuff, like where the carb is attached to the throttle servo, I use the 1.5mm. Also, for the nuts around the shock towers, I use a 1/4" driver.

Hope this helps.

The sizes needed are .050", 1/16", 5/64", and 3/32.

Get the losi set. They last forever and fit the screws just perfectly.

not to sure, i know one is just slightly bigger

you are better off getting a losi set that way you know your losi cars are not going to strip a screw with a losi tool set.

Get the new 8 in 1 Hex Wrench. It has all the sizes and they are 1/4 bits that you can use in a electric screwdriver too. I have one and I can tell you it feels good in your hand. In the bits that come in this kit, the 2mm and 5/64 are the same bit.
