I have had great luck with the Irwin screw extractors. They are affordable too.

Yeah.... there's no reason you need snap-on tools to work on an r/c car

I just answered the title to his post with Snap-on because he was looking for the best tools. And I gave him a option..

Grab It Pro - You can get the 3 piece set at Home Depot for around $19 if you don't want to pay shipping. I keep this set in my RC tool box....has saved my butt, and many of my friends several times.

I use the craftman version, they are same though. Like already said, take 3 seconds to take out a striped bolt.

well I must have been doing something wrong with the craftsman extractors. I never could get them to work on like a 2.5 or 2mm screw

+1 I have used these and they go smaller than the grab it ones. This is a smaller set that I think fits rc needs best. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...&blockType=G16
