    Back-up Tools Needed?

    What would be a good group of back-up tools to keep handy for this car?

    Sizes would be helpful. I've lost my old RC toolkit and need to get caught up.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I mean, anything outside of the included tools.

    Found this to be awesome. Comes with half a dozen swappable double-ended bits (which all fit into the end of the handle) with a removable finger-drive, all held together by magnets.

    One bit fits the tiny RPM knuckle screws, one nearly every screw on the chassis, and the big standard screwdriver is handy for prying off hex hubs. Only thing that doesn't fit 100% is the nearest bit to the metric size for the motor-mount screw.

    Very nice! That's perfect! What size are the motor-mount screws?

    The 5/64 hex in the tool is just a little small for the main motor-mount screw, which is 2mm IIRC... It'll work in a pinch, ish, but I'd worry much torquing on it would strip the hex.

    Correction... the one big silver motor-mount hex is 2.5mm (3/32 is a little too small)... All the other chassis screws are 2mm hex (5/64 is equivalent).

    If you buy the RPM plastice carriers you will need a SAE 0.05 allen since the screws are sooo small i got a whole set on ebay.
