Default Need help deciding how to spend 250.00

Guys,

I have about 275.00 in paypal that is burning a whole in my pocket. So I have a few questions.

#1. Are the MIP wrenches still the best?

#2. Are the OFNA electric 1/4 hexs the same as the MIP?

#3. Who makes a good deep socketnut driver?

#4. I have all the parts, kits, engines, batteries, electronics I need for 10 years so what would you buy? I am thinking tools because as a man you can never have enough!

You can buy me a new engine J/k.

You can't go wrong with EDS tools. Very good tools. I've been using the same set for almost 2 years now. Only thing I've broken was the tip of my body reamer, and that's cause I dropped it.

I do like the MIP wrenches. The material is very hard and stiff(ha), and I never strip anything out with them.

I have had many different brand of wrenches but for me the best I have ever owned and used are Losi both hex and box, the tip never lets me down and the wrenches have a nice weight to them.

The EDS tool kit is GREAT. But no matter what tool you get make sure it has the 120mm tips they make wrenching a whole world easier. I will never buy those short losi or dynamite ones again. Personaly my thunder tiger set was also very good. The tips lasted 2 years and have a compartment in the handle so you conveniently always have a spare piece of hardware the size of the handle you are using. (plus at 28 bucks a set of 4 hex drivers they are a quality over what you pay for)

Buy a good cheap club racing engine. For the price, the Losi 350 engine at $160.00 is a steal.

The EDS are awesome, however the shorter Losi wrenches fit in my hand perfectly and they don't twist when I'm tightening or trying to get a stuck screw out like the longer eds wrenches....
