thats kind of a contradiction there, there are plenty of places to buy good tools, but quality costs money. Cheap tools are never cheap in the long run either, you end up wearing them out and having to buy twice. Any decent model shop will have a range of good tools from makers like HUDY or Integy. Speedtech stocks Integy tools and I like the 2.5mm hex driver I got from them, nice and precise fitting and strong too, plus it's blue so matches my cuda

I will never buy cheap tools again, they use soft, crappy materials to make them, and dont hold up for more than a day. Buy nice the first time and dont worry about it again.

You'll need a 1.5mm, 2.5mm, and #2 allen head screwdriver from what I remember. I switched out all of the screws to hex head though, so someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Some of these CUDA fanboys like to play with all the different parts & colours, its a hobby, they play it like they want...my CUDA is rediculously close to stock. It hauls the mail just fine without all the wizz-bang stuff

you'll need a philips head screw driver for a lot of the standard screws, the average size for most kits and home screws, not sure what it is exactly. I hate the things so most of mine are now 2mm hex titanium screws, along side the kit 2.5mm ones, just a few to change over.

What exactly do you have on your Cuda RBFixx?

As far as hop-ups go...
I have the aluminum shaft holders (a must, the kit should come with them)

Ti Shock mounts

and I just put on the ti rod kit last week

There are some cool things out there for it, but I've tried to keep it simple so far

When I start to run Mod I may have to pick up some aluminum bits for the suspension, but for stock & spec I just don't think its neccessary.

HEHE, that could be considered more hopped up than mine
I have...
Alloy shaft holders
alloy battery strap- not really a hop up, I didn't have a battery strap with my kit
most of the bottom chassis screws are now titanium, not all though.
yokomo bladder type shock caps

So RedBull....your telling me I didn't need to replace every single part that came with the kit with aftermarket hop-ups?

RedBullFiXX,

Yeah, those are some grand results! 8 out of 10 in the overall...not too bad for USPS!

It's good to be Lance, & pretty good to be Pena on his B-day no less

So I'm back to the whole Needs vs. Wants thing again...oh well, guess it's about time to enter that 12 step RC program over at Betty Ford!
