Mmm... almost forget MIP and Losi tools! I have my MIP set for more than 10 years and they are great but now I prefer the aluminum handles. Time to upgrade! Anyone uses Yokomo ones?

I'm still using allen keys with sore thumbs and want real hex tools for my TC4! Should I get The RD Logics or Associated set?

The new Schumacher tools are great. I like the Hudy tools as well.

The AE tools are a great choice, IMO, for the money. The tips are made well, and the smaller ones have held up longer than my Dynamite or Integy tools. AE also offers the ball hex sets, which are great for getting into odd spots on a chassis.

The MIP tools are another great choice. The only downside is the tips are non-replaceable. You can send you entire tool back to MIP, and they will regrind the tip onto the shaft.

If you can afford them, get a Hudy set. You may also want to look at Hard Tools - http://www.phenixdist.com/index.asp?...ATS&Category=7

i've been using 3racing for almost 2 years now and they are good,but i recently purchased a 2mm and 0.05 speedmind after a tip off and must say that these are the most exact fitting i've used so far
i had a screw that was partially stripped and tried various drivers without success as my 2mm 3racing driver is worn out. a friend had a sm 2mm that removed it like he was taking out a new screw

I know this thread is ancient but just in case anyone else comes reading this for tool info.... Ive been using Team EDS for over a decade now and they are by far my favorite. I started buying Hudy originally way back when but someone told me that the Team EDS's were the made in the same way the Hudys were (Rolled spring steel) and for all intents and purposes were the same tools for half the Hudy price tag. Well they were right. I bought a set to try out and now I own probably 80+% of their catalog. The sell replacement tips too although in over 10-12 years that Ive been using EDS Ive never had to replace a tip. They also sell a lot of other tools besides just hex wrenches and ball hex wrenches.

I have Hudy, Axial, MR33 and Mip sets... as well as Dynamite and Associated. MIP hands down are the best "tool"

To me in terms of price/quality ratio, it's Wera Kraftform Plus for the drivers hands down...

A single one is about 5~8 bucks and will last you a lifetime, the handles feel amazing, and I like the fact that it's not as flashy.

The best thing to keep doing is finger tighten instead of hulking things down...

This. Mip hex wears less than any other tool.
