ebay or speedtechrc.com or integy website. They are better than associated ones because they are stronger. The tip doesnt break (so far),more comfortable in your hand and cheaper. In the handle of associated, where you attach the screw in, it always lose its thread.
Tool box esentials? I have leatherman wave.

penggoy is right. i got them from my LHS for 29.95! great little drivers. the ti-Nitride tips are awesome. ive actually twisted the shaft almost half way around without breaking it!

they arent as badass as the hudy drivers, but they certainly arent junk! you just cant go wrong for the price.

i cant say i agree, ive had my associated ones for over a year now and use them for punches constantly, ive never broke a tip, the downside to integy's is if you have a xxx bk2 you would have to get lunsford front axles because there is no 5/64in one as far as i know, they may have added it but i dont think there is one. integys are great and you couldnt break one if you tried but as far as i know they werent good for me becuase i have a bk2. but the associateds are great besides the price 60 bucks for 7 wrenches

Default Clean up the language

hehe i thought the same thing..... at first. the RC10GT has a 5/64ths cap screw as the trust bolt in the diff. i thought i was screwed until i realized the 2.0mm driver is the same size im pretty sure its not PERFECT, but its close enough that ive put MAD torque on it and never stripped a screw head. im willing it bet the metric conversion is dead on.

yep, 5/64ths comes out to roughly .0781 inches. 2.0mm comes out to 0.0787. thats pretty edit close

you should have no probs using a 2.0mm wrench on a 5/64ths screw head.

oh, then the integy 2mm would be even worse, because the 6/54 is like 1/64 to big and its a pain in the nuts to tighten the axles

wha?

2mm is .007 smaller than 5/64th. 6/64 is .015 larger than 5/64. so i dont know what youre talking about, cuz 2mm will be a much better fit in a 5/64th cap than 3/32 (or 6/64)

trust me the 2.0mm will be a MUCH closer fit than your 3/32 driver.

if you check out the racers edge catalog the replacement shaft for their 2.0mm driver is '5/64"-2mm replacement tip"
