in your manual it states what the basic tools you'll need to keep the car up to date... each car varies slightly. but the basic american sizes are:

the basic sae tools are (i have a tc4, t4, b4):

hex wrenches
.50"
1/16"
5/64"
3/32"
2.0mm
2.5mm

normal phillips and slot screwdrivers

socket nut drivers
3/16"
1/4"
11/32"

I might be missing something. There are also scissors, pliers, calipers, etc.. but build as you go. Take a look at your local racers box.. and ask what you should get.


That should get you started. Look at a variety of toolsets from the LOSI, ASSOCIATED, INTEGY, HUDY and even Dynamite (cheaper but good).

good luck...

or to tape my competitors car to the ceiling beams before the main heat...



or to tape my competitor to his chair...









duct tape is sooooooo useful!
