Which should I get and why etc?

Hudy or MIP have the best fit from my experience.

Mike Smith isn't the designer of the RC Lab. It's some fella in Hong Kong.

Wrenches - I honestly think RPM are the best - they may not look very sexy, but they're well built and comfortable and give plenty of torque if required.

Horatio.

I don't know if you're in England. If so I recommend RW Racing tools. They are well made, comparatively cheap and bullit proof, and available at most model shops.

I have Hudy and MIP wrenches but I find myself using the MIP Thorps more especially the 2mm for the SD Ti screws. The fit of the tip to the screw if very nice and snug.

Thanks guys for your answers regarding hex drivers!

Sosidge:

You mean Mike Smith from Modeltech tricked me into believing him about being a designer of the RC Lab car?!!

You wait till I need to order another set of blades - I'll have 'im!!

Horatio,

Both Sosidge and Mike are partially right.

The original car was designed and built in Hong Kong, but Mike has had alot of influence on it's recent developement and success.

I have just irdered a stock of both the Corally Assassin and the old C4 blades but I will get in touch with Mike about the RC Lab ones.

Are you in UK?

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Well I wouldn't want to accuse Mike of lying.

I also wouldn't want to accuse him of failing to put postage on two packages he sent me, causing them to be delayed by a couple of weeks each.

Default blades

haaaa I know I was up onto something.

Thanks for the info, Joe and Horatio.

Can somebody please recommend a online shop that sells RCLab's blades? If it could stock some Yoke parts (and not be out of stock on the usual stuff like most shops), and sell overseas, that'd be perfect...

Thanks much!

Later
Paul

Ah, so Mike wasn't telling porkies then He seemed very confident that the RC Lab ones will be as easy to fit as the assasin ones, but just have a better shape. He was also willing for me to exchange them for Corally ones if I wasn't entirely happy with them.

I assume Mike distributes to your shop in Malta then?

I am based in the UK, more precisely Wales (nr England ) & trying to keep the sport alive. Things are looking up actually.

Sosidge:

Sorry to hear that. I've had things go 'missing' in the past - most memorably a TTech P8 (worth about £350+) and it was far from funny. Fortunately a little man in the factory 'hand-chiselled' me another one

Lonestar:

Nice one - everyone's better off as a result. No more wear!!!
