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?

I've had mine for years, work great. The Ti. Nitride tips really last.

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
