Hmmmmm......... I don't know what the deal is but I can say one thing for sure I use a 1.5mm Hex Driver for my Tamiya Pinions and a .063thou (which is 1/16 or there abouts) Hex Driver for everything else. I have never had the need for a .050 Thou Hex driver which according to my digital calipers is only 1.25mm (smaller than the Tamiya one)

Perhaps things are a little different down under

Don't know about the Tamiya pinions, but I know for a fact that HPI pinions use 3mm set screws which require the 1.5mm wrench as stated in the manuals and provided in the kits. The X-Ray uses a 1/16 wrench. The set screws used with the MIP CVDs for instance use the .050 wrench. This is a very small set screw and I seriously doubt it is used in pinions.

Hey doesn't Tamiya make a similar air-remover tool? As for the Losi shock tool, "SWEEET"

I have not seen a similar air removal tool from Tamiya. The Losi shock tool does look sweet but I will stick to my digital calipers for now

The Tamiya version is exactly the same as the Ride...it just has a Tamiya sticker! A bit like the Tamiya camber gauge being the same as the Serpent gauge (it even still has the Serpent molding!)

I've been using the Ride version for a few years. You have to do it a few times before all the air is expelled. It is not bad!
