Hey, so i plan on purchasing one of these beautiful machines when they are released, but ive never run an imperial car so have no tools, aside from the regular 3 drivers do i need anything else, like nut drivers or wheel nut spanner etc etc or will all my metric stuff work except the drivers.

Thanks all

1/4" and 5/16" nut drivers,
3/32" and 1/16" allen drivers,
The standard 2.0mm allen is used for the 5/64" sizes.
Wheel nuts are still the normal 17mms...

Have not come across any other tool "required to have" for a Losi that did not work on any other vehicles...

Are there any metric conversions for the car? and would it be worth the money?

There were a couple kits that were metric heads with standard threads but that was back in the 2.0 days ( marketed for the EU mainly) that may still be out there. I think it was Tony's or RCScrews.... But for the $40-45 in screws plus shipping to down under, you could get the 4 tools you need, soooooo......6 in one hand, half dozen in the other

Yeah, I have tried to find them in the past, but it was definitely easier to order the tools that I needed.

Got all my 4.0t parts today. Time to update my weight forward conversion

It looks like losi are going to offer a 52t spur as well. The center diff mount says 52t on top
