Much More Racing has a really trick blue one that is really tiny, and has a thin wall as well. I like it because it matches my brush alignment tool as well.

I sell the same unit as the much more unit for much cheaper....

It's on the site www.teambrood.com 4.5mm wrench......you kinda need a RC one, as most have to thick of walls, so they do not fit on our motors...

the size is 4.5mm but if you get a standard 4.5mm, you need to grind the out side wall to fit it.

Actually, the true size is 4.3mm. However since there are no known 4.3mm wrenches, we have to settle for the 4.5mm wrenches.
