If anyone has a question ask stefan since he knows all. We would not have this thing called RC racing if it was not for him. All the company's that make product in this industry should thank him. So I will say thank you from Xray you have been such a big help. Thanks Stefan:lol ::lol ::lol ::lol :

Here are some facts for all of you:

1. I bought my first MIP wrench in 1985 (though it was a Thorpe "Dirt Burners" wrench back then) and you know what? I still have and use it.

2. Since 1985 I have had one MIP break on me (an .050 that I dropped on a concrete floor). I bought my first Hudy around 2001 or so and have had two break.

3. I have owned Hudy, EDS, Integy, OFNA, Dynamite and even a Parma. All were excellent but I will take an MIP over them all with EDS being a close second.

4. I have used Losi, Associated, Mugen, Exceed and who knows what when working on other people's cars with their tools and all of them were good too but none were better than MIP.

5. Knurled aluminum handles look nice but blister my palm something fierce when building a new car in an all day building bonanza. Nicely rounded plastic handles do not.

Despite these facts, few people mention MIP in these discussions. Everyone seems to think that because Hudy is so expensive, they must be the best. Well yes, they are very good but over the years I have slowly but surely switched all my drivers over to MIP. The only one I need now is a 1.5mm to replace my dynamite. I had to buy it at the trackside hobby store when my Hudy broke. Paid 8 bucks for it years ago and it is still going strong.

I agree. 100% Love my MIP / Thorpe

The only problem I have is that they don't make a 2mm ball which I so desperately need.

The MIP Thorpe blow hudy and EDS out of the water....They dont look as cool but they are much stronger and the handle is a lot more comfortable.

Today I saw the RB tools...
Looks quite fine... I didnt try any of them, but looks like they do their job just fine..
I use HUDY for car's maintenance, 2mm, 1,5mm, 2,50 ball etc, but i have also some vision tools from ebay cross and straight ones for anything else.
You can make your tool gear one by one, not all together!!
