    17mm Nuts

    I found it hard to get my Xmaxx's, Emaxx'x, Summit's, and XO's 17mm nut off using the Traxxas tool. I've been using a 17mm socket and a 3/8's driver. Now, though, I made this and it works very well. You can get the two parts from Amazon. Then I machined the two parts together. It works really good, so I thought I'd tell you guys just in case anyone wants to make them one.

    What is the diameter? Is it big enough to let you get a good grip on it. That's what was happening to me with my Traxxas one. It was hurting my hands when I was trying to get my Xmaxx nuts on and off. With this one I made; I get plenty of grip and it doesn't hurt when I need to torque down on it.
