Necessary tools: 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3 mm hex drivers, 5.5 and 7mm nut drivers. 3mm or 4mm turnbuckle wrench.

Buy quality tools once, or cheap tools multiple times. You can't go wrong with Hudy tools. I've had mine since 2006 with no issues.

I must admit, I really like the dynamite metal handled tools for the price. I have their hex drivers, other buddies have complete sets they've had for years and we race every weekend throughout the year.

Hudy are nice too, but too $$$ for me

Team integy here. Though i prefered the older style to the new knurled ones. Whatever you buy get tools with replacable ends. Personally dont like hudy as they dont specify their size. Just the stripes.

I'll admit, I own a set of the Integy spring steel hex wrenches. I didn't believe it till I tried it, Dynamite hands down to integy. They work and can last awhile, but I've had issues with mine and seen them with others. Was convinced I had gotten a good deal, looking back and comparing, I thought wrong.

Amain has the Hudy 8pc set for $124. I bought it and they are great. Nice and light but strong as anything. The tips are replaceable and not really too expensive.
