Hi guys, bit of a wierd one. as far as im aware TRF 416 cars have 4.5m turnbuckles??

Well I ordered up a TRF turnbuckle wrench from RC MART and its arrived and its 3.5mm so dosnt fit TRF cars??? When ive asked RC MART they said thats the way they are and if i want to order another one then get the yeah racing one????

Suerly this cant be right?

I believe the 3.5mm wrench is for those new, over-priced titanium turnbuckles they sell. The aluminum turnbuckles use a 4mm wrench.

So let's do this again.

This is the good old wrench fitting the turnbuckles that comes with all the 416 versions (and other kits from Tamiya) http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53602

This is the wrench for the new hop up titanium turnbuckles http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=42122
