Default Team AE (hex driver)

Is there a special AE tool to get these little chassis screws out? It seems like they're close to 1/16th, but not really close enough and they strip out super easily. Is there a trick or just an exact tool that needs to be purchased? It's getting pretty frustrating.

Just guessing here. Are you referring to a tc5? The tc5 uses metric m3 screws as opposed to older models that used standard hardware. You can use either a 2.0mm wrench or standard 5/64 should work as they are very close to each other.

oops, no it's a TC4 and it's more like 1.5mm but that is too small. I think the PO just stripped most of them. Oh well.

Is it the Factory Team TC4? The carbon fiber one?

Yes, it does. They included the most pathetic excuse for a screw the world has ever seen in that kit. I found it to be an insult to their customers, and sold my AE stuff and went Xray.
