Default I need some wrenches..

Looking at the following:

Team Integy Ti-Nitride 7-Piece Hex Allen Wrench Set 32.94 Shipped
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=200256958538

Team Integy 6-Piece TiNi Hex Allen Driver Wrench Set 24.28 Shipped
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=310082481572

Extra 8$ for the 3.0mm seems a bit excessive....isn't it? Would be nice to have the matching set however.....

3mm is useful if you think you'll ever run 1/8 scale.

The only need I see for a 3mm is 1/8th scale buggies for the screws on the bottom of the chassis. And perhaps some knuckles on the suspension depending on the buggy\truck.

Also...what is the difference between the spring steel and the Ti-Nitride shafts?

Found another thread, but still a bit inconclusive for me:

I do run 1/8 scale, no need for a 3mm with a 8ight or XB8

4mm screws (the ones you guys are talking about on buggies) are 2.5mm wrench

I picked upa set of Axial wrenches last week and they're nice..... they have alot bigger handles than Hudy... more like Losi sized but plastic. I hate a small wrench

Nothing wrong with the Integy drivers, just plan on replacing the tips used most often about once a year. .050" and the 1/16" wear out pretty quickly.
