Well, I have some Wiha drivers and I think they are excellent budget tools. In fact the tip quality is way beyond "budget".

The Hobbico and Duratrax seem to be identical (not surprising), couldn't comment on them though as I have never used them.

Don't forget Dynamite! They're cheap-about $7 each, if I remember correctly, and I have yet to damage one in 6 years.

I like the Integy drivers for the money... that's what I use for both my B4 and XRay T1.

Ill second the integy vote. Not only are they nicely balanced but their tip is awesome. And instead of paying 25-30 bucks for the whole set, you can usually pick up just the ones you want on ebay for about 5 bucks a piece including shipping. They are color coded too which is kinda cool. just a thought.

I have the Integy allen drivers, and they have been top notch! They get my vote. The price for Hudy is outrageous...

Hi,

I have the MIP/Thorpe wrenches. great wrenches/balldrivers. I got most of mine on sale for 7 bucks just as good if not better than my Hudy wrenches. I don't own any Intgey wrenches but they are nice. great motor post wrench too. racers edge wrenches ok if you have small hands (I don't) nice rubber grips are a option. duratrax.....never used them I have seen them break at our track.

Good Luck

I like Wiha myself. I have the master tech set and they are great. Only downside is they don't have replaceable tips. Check out Harbor Freight tools. Also I am hearing good things about Schumacher tools and they are only about $8 apiece. I have Duratrax nut drivers and screw drivers and they work great. Had the ball hex drivers and they were junk, only lasted me about a month. Hope this helped you out and good luck

I found allen drivers at Sears. Located around the Precesion screwdivers. They are black plastic with red end cap that spins.
Common sizes only
I bought the two common sizes for Associated.

2.99 each
