    I highly doubt there is a rc specific brand one get what u linked or Milwaukee or dewalt or makita or something and get a bit set and you will be good to go I would be careful stripping things with a electric driver though

    Hudy tools are boss, they remove screws i stripped with lower quality hex's no problem. Screwing into plastic you have to be careful and do it slowly.

    I'm pretty sure mip makes a set of hex drivers with a 1/4" shank that will fit in a electric driver but if you go that route you really need a clutch on the drill or else it will strip everything

    Yes I know about stripping things. I was just thinking start it by hand then tighten it and right before it gets snug I stop and use a hex wrench.

    That would be more work than just screwing it the whole way in, my man.

    I like impact drivers. I have ran self tapping 1/2 inch lag bolts through 1/2 inch of steel I beams no problem. (:
    Jk. I really have done that with a dewalt 20v. But I prefer my mip hand drivers for wrenching on my rc cars.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    No doubt I do all my rc wrenching by hand just passing info. I wouldn't recommend using an electric anything on these cars

    I have a cheapie, off brand hand held small electric gun (christmas gift) I use for my Mayhem Beadlocks wheels on my SCX-10 but that because there are 32 screws per tire. It is very weak and cant even tighten all the way. It will save on some arthritis pain meds in the future. I only use it for this. Everything else is done by hand...

    Even just disassembling with an electric can ruin the parts... the heat from extracting the screw can get high enough to deform the plastic. However, WalMart has a cheap-o electric driver for $8ish... that thing is as slow as molasses. Getting a high quality bit set for that (I would prefer ball nose) is what I have considered getting in the past.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Dynamite makes a set that has both metric and standard bits with it, runs in the $35-$40 range too.

    I've been using the dynamite set and it's been pretty good, but after 6mo I'm noticing that the two bits I use most are getting a little rounded. I expected better life for the price

    There's not enough room in most RC's to get around using an electric driver...

    Hudy,,, nice but,,, they like to roll off the pit table...

    Now Integy has a Ti Nitrate coated set of drivers, had them since 2004, broke one of the smaller drivers tip off, just replaced the shaft, and trust me I was cranking way too hard on it.

    One of the very few products Integy makes that I actually would recommend.

    Dynamite makes a decent set as well but I've broken 3 of them...
