Default Any info on this tool?

I am always on the lookout for new tools, I just can't get enough of them Anyways in the newest r/c car it made mention of this tool http://www.rc-ride.co.jp/eng/docs/rp600.html It looks pretty slick. Just curious if any of our over-seas friends have seen or used them. I can't seem to find any place that actually sells them.

No Worries Matt,
There are a few other Interesting goodies on there too.
I buy from Hobbymania a lot and highly recommend Andy Lam.
His service is excellent..

Usually 1.5mm for Tamiya and 1/16 (.060) for just about everything else.

its deffinately worth the cash i like it, gives much more even all round shock performance and it lets a little longer between nesecary rebuild of your shocks.

Thats an Interesting signiature you have there fasterdanu.. I take it you had trouble with your GT7....

Personally I have had several Novak ESC's with not one failing me. That included a 13 year old antique (410-HPc) that never missed a beat and was as smooth as.

Maybe I was just lucky...

That should read .050, (50 thou), which is not 1/16th, it's smaller.

No.... sorry to contradict........but my hex tool measures exactly .063 Thou and that is the one that fits all my robinson racing pinions grub screws perfectly. I just measured it with my digital calipers before writing this post...

Steevo: Actually Robinson pinions use a 5/40 set screw which requires a 1/16th wrench, most other American pinions use a 4/40 set screw which takes a .050 wrench. The 4/40screw and .050 wrench combo is the accepted Standard in this country.
