Hudy are by far the nicest tools I've ever seen or used in the world of RC. They're not cheap by any means, but with Hudy its only a one time investment.

For the cheapo alternative Craftsman has some really nice plastic handled hext drivers that are right at $1.90 each. They seem much nicer than the other cheapo tools out there, and they are even covered by Craftsman's lifetime warranty....hard to beat for the price IMO.

I really like the integy tools, good quality, very durable. The only problem I've had with them is I've gone through a handful of the 0.05" (silver handle) hex wrench tips putting on pinions. I've never used the nut wrenches but i've heard others say they're nice.

i used to use Yokomo tools, because they were ok quality and ok price. but the hex tips wore out quickly (about 6 months of usage) so then i purchased the HUDY inserts to replace the worn out hexes. the difference was like night and day! HOO-DEE hex tools are the best!

I still like my Yokomo handles, i even had them annodized gold to match my all gold 415MS....so the black shafts and gold handles really look good.

I use the dynamite allen drivers and craftsman nut drivers and the work great and no where near 200 dollars. Just find out what sizes your car uses and get them. They are available in standard and metric. Check out www.horizonhobby.com and look for the dynamite tools

I have Schumacher in 1.3, 1.5, 2.0 & 2.5 and Hudy in 2.0 and 3.0.

Schumacher nice and cheap and can by indivualy.
Hudy a lot better quality and fit but exspensive.

I use the RPM hex drivers. Last year I finally wore my 1.5mm one out, sent to RPM and they sent me a new one no charge. I like the ball end ones for getting into tight spaces.

I use the Integy nut drivers, my only complaint is the labels wore off pretty fast.

Default Hudy wrenches for Xray T2?

I bought the Hudy wrenches, but now I'm in the process of switching from TC4 to Xray T2. I will have some non-metric sized allen drivers and nut drivers available if you still need them.
