I have tried st about every brand of tools and hudy wins. Nothing else even comes close. Proline was junk, team magic hard to find and short tips bit descent, h.a.r.d way cool carbon fiber handles but useless on 1/8 scale, vp pro the 2mm tip spun on the 1st use, eds not a bad second to hudy, dynamite descent but not for everyday use, Mugen descent bit pricy, mip good tools but I personally don't like the handle. I havent tried any Losi or AE tools but in my book it goes:
1. Hudy
2. EDS
3. All the rest that I will never buy again.

I mean you bought a hudy car why not go with hudy tools?

I use and abuse the VP Pro driver set. Havent had a problem with any of them yet. Trust me. I'm hard on tools. I'm "that guy" that ends up breaking a craftsman wrench and actually uses the lifetime warranty.

Also, pick up an MIP ball-end 2.5mm for your motor mounts. I have two, thinking a ball-end wouldnt last me very long. Believe me when I say that motor mount screws give way before the tip does. By far the best ball end driver I've ever used.

Losi has a new Slick All in one driver, All the tips you could need along with a magnetic driver handle, If you have a Quick drill these will come in REAL handy.

I use the Ofna 4 set hexes and they are awesome. I also say +1 on the MIP 2.5 ball driver it is very nice. I've got alot of ED'S tools but going to give VP Pro a try on some now that we are with them.

I've got VP-Pro screw drivers, (flat) for tuning, and they are as good a quality as Hudy or EDS, I am sure their Hex drivers are too. As for Integy, as long as you get the TiN coated drivers you will not be dissappointed, I promise.. Beware they make 2 versions of hex drivers, one kind has little bitty handles on them, and the price it like $22, make sure to spend the extra $10, and get the bigger handled version..

I use the Losi drivers, they seem like good quality to me.
