as for the bits, I would highly recommend the MIP bits, they have the slot to lock in place and I have done tear downs and rebuilds with the same 2.0 and 2.5 bits for over a year and the hex still looks like new, no signs of wear.

if the assoicated uses metric hardware then thats the one you want. i dont know, but you man want to look into a bigger set that has the 1.5mm bit. does the rc8 have any 1.5 screws?

IMO you dont need a Power driver for 1.5mm screw's....you'll only end up snapping the tip or stripping the part you screwing into......i cant say ive EVER used the 1.5 tip

Fatdaddy Almost every car will have 1.5 on them as thats the size of the linkage stopper set screw's...what Nitro powered rc doesn't have linkages right....but i still say you dont need a speed tip in 1.5mm

2lbs Vs .5lb

that's how i look at this debate.

if your spending 100$ the Hitachi is IMO the only way to go.

IF you want to be able to use the drill for more then Just RC...then go with a pistol style like the Milwaukee or Makita.....i personally use the Makita for lots of thing's around the house and the Impact gun i got in the kit is also handy to have for stubborn knurled wheel nuts that dont want to come off (Nascar style)

I've been using this Milwaukee cordless screwdriver for a long time. Gotta be getting close to 10 years old and only recently did one of the battery packs die. Very small and light.

Better not be fibbin' houston.

I picked this up yesterday:

Ti-Nitride QuickPit 11pcs Set, Metric Allen Hex + Socket + Screw Driver Tips


Beginner4Life:
The Quick Pit & V-Torque line seems to support the chuck that clamps on.
QP: http://integy.com/st_prod.html?p_pro...35&p_catid=161
VT: http://integy.com/st_prod.html?p_pro...38&p_catid=161

Whereas their 4-in-1 seems to just be a normal 1/4" hex end.
http://integy.com/st_prod.html?p_pro...46&p_catid=161

Also MIP speed bits have the accommodations for the chuck as well.

as far as the 1/16th and 1.5mm , the integy set comes with a handle so you can screw small stuff or finish off bolts/screws manually with the same tip .

been using the setup for about 3 yrs. now .

use common sense to make sure allen head is all the way in the screw head and do not overtorque .

i actually have the torque driver set , its sweet

my wife bought me this ryobi, I thought it was alot more expensive than what it was, well it preforms like an expensive mini driver. Best thing is it has a clutch, and it's made for the ofna style hex bits. it's made wrenching on my car a breeze!
I have had this one for awhile now and put at least two kits and a few crawlers together with it. I wouldn't buy a $100 one if this was sitting next to it. The best thing for my hands. Especially since each wheel on my crawler has 32 screws to install.

Hey awesome. That's good news man.

I'll hold you to it. Everyone saw it happen.

I got those on houston's unending relentless arm-twisting recommendation. If it doesn't work out, I'll be sure to let 'em know.


I'd really rather get the MIP/Thorp; but funding always plays too-big a part in this decision making process.

oh duh. i was thinking about my kit where i can use my bits in a drill or it has a handle adapter to make it a driver. yeah, you definately dont need a 1.5 for the drill, just a driver


as far as the 1.5 set screws, i can never tell what car is standard, metric, or both
