Default How come nobody makes a ebuggy 17mm nut driver

I see Duratraxs makes a bulky looking one and Integy makes a T handle 17mm but how come no one makes a regular size 17mm. I figured Dynamite would have one but it dosent look like it. Anybody know of anything.

cause it would be big and bulky. Also you probably couldnt get enough torque with a driver on such a large nut.

T wrench or 4 way wrench. Some even use a socket and ratchet/impact.

How have you been into r/c for at least 8 years, yet you couldn't figure this out?
