If you are looking for complete sets I would go with EDS tools. They are great and at a good price. The only ones I like even better are MIP's. The tips are the best in the business PERIOD and I prefer the plastic handle. Great if you just need 1 or 2 wrenches. Also, the MIP is by far the strongest .050 tip.

My toolbox is an assortment of MIP's, EDS, Hudy, one Dynamite, an old Parma .050, Integy (really nice ball end 3mm), OFNA, Mugen and have used most of the others at one time or another so I have first hand experience. MIP and EDS are the top of the line.

A while ago I was just browsing around on eBay and came across these:

Since the price was really low, I decided to for it. I have been using them for a couple of months now and they are holding up really well.

I know this is not one of the famous brands or anything, but I thought I would share this information.

Integy has a Torque sensing set, that should just about eliminate that from happening, and it'll help you keep from overtightening screws going into plastic...Plus it comes with both SAE, and metric bits...Sweet set...

Here's a link to the set I'm refering to...


Hope this helps...
Have Fun...Burn Nitro...

If you can find them, I have the old Dynamite wrenches. They are red and have a big handle. Dynamite made newer small handled ones that are not as strong. I've had mine for over 15 years and have never needed to replace a tip. And they are used very regularly...

They are not cheap but the Mugen tool set will be the last tools you'll ever buy. Best bang for the buck are the Thunder Tiger wrenches.

Dynamite's red-handled anodized ones. I've had ONE driver I used on every single RC car I've EVER owned and the list is: Kyosho Ultima ST EP, Duratrax Evader(2), Losi XXX-S, AE TC3, RC18T, Trinity Itsy Bitsy Spider, and the 2 in my signature. The only part that is even STARTING to show wear is the handle and that's because it was in a bag of a bunch of junk for 2 years when I was not into RC any more.

Default tools

EDS for the money and the handle is awesome during prolong use. Pay top dollar for Hudy and they do not include the handle plug.

mip makes the best by far. I have hudy, losi, associated, havent tried eds yet thou. I have had a mip 3/32 since 1999. They also offer the most comfort and grip. Even thou the tips arent replaceable all you have to do is send them in for a very small fee. But I havent ever broke one. Actually I just bought a mip 2.5mm ball hex today. Hudy ones are nice but I have broke a few of them and I dont really like the grip of it. The mugen prospec tools look nice but the are like 23.00 a wrench.
