    Your toolkit!

    Which toolkit do you use for your Slash/RC Gear??
    After some electric options but not sure what to go for, so was wondering what you guys use?

    I use MIP 1.3, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5mm drivers, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5mm ball end drivers as well as MIP 5.0, 5.5, 7.0mm nut drivers, and MIP 1.5, 2.0, 2.5mm speed bits for a $20 Black & Decker electric screwdriver. TLR turnbuckle wrench, and camber gauge. JConcepts ride height gauge. RPM TOE gauge. Dynamite hole reamer. Curved and straight lexan scissors ( don't know who makes them). Small needle-nose pliers. Tweezers. Exacto hobby knife. That's all I can think of off the top of my head without actually looking in my toolbox.

    MIP is a little more money than others, but it will be the last set of tools you'll ever buy

    ok I'm going to pick up a Ryobi 4V electric screwdriver - seems to be a common one for RC related stuff

    Which drivers do I need for the Slash 4X4?

    Will these cover it?

    Mip 1.5-3.0 hex drivers, black and decker electric driver, and a manual ratcheting driver are my most used specific tools.

    you need to be careful but you definitely need some sort of cordless bit driver. I use a Lowes branded one to get the screws down most of the way and snap-on drivers that I finish hand tightening with. I use the cordless bit driver for the wheel nuts and I have a set of very small snap-on wrenches but I mainly just use the 3mm one I think. Ball end drivers are helpful to have. I have a few ball end bits but I need a full/better set. I have a small pair of snap-on diagonal and needle nose pliers.

    They're ADI wrenches. Pretty nice, but a bit pricey IIRC.

    For little wrenches yes, in the grand scheme of things I'll get some. I forget the age gap of this hobby. 10 dollars for a good wrench seems like a good deal to me. 28 bucks for 3. Nice. Thanks btw
