Default Kyosho ST-R Turnbuckles

Is it just me, or are the ST-R turnbuckles a weird size? Most 1/8 scale buckles are 5.0 mm, but my ST-R buckles are 5.33 mm. Which no one makes a wrench for, including Kyosho.

I plan on going to Lunsfords to remedy this, but what a pain.

Never had a problem by using a 5.5mm open end wrench. Works great. Cost a lot less than replacing all the turnbuckles too.

BTW not all are 5.0mm, OFNA's are 7mm.
