    Hex wrench sizes?

    I know of and use three different sized hex screws. The small grub screw that goes in pinions, the medium sized used just about everywhere else (e.g. shock towers), and the larger size used in the motor mount screws.

    So, what sized (in mm) hex wrenches do these use? I'm tired of using the cheap "L'' wrenches and would like to get some with handles.

    for rustler/slash/stampede, you need 1.5mm for the really small ones, 2.0 for medium, and 2.5 for large. you only need that for larger trucks

    Get Integy quick-Pit bits. Will fir in any 1/4 drive tool. The handles are too small on the screwdriver type tools.

    I saw those. I may do something like that. I have a really great Ikea screw driver that takes 1/4 bits.

    a 1.5 2.0 2.5 will cover 99% of the traxxas vehicles. There is a screw on the e-revo/summit transmission that takes a 3.0. My RRP pinions take a 1/16 standard. I wrench alot and that is all I need. I reccomend sending the coin and buying a quailty kit like the losi or pro-line one.

    Integy does make some nice tools. However, Patriot makes the same drivers, same warehouse built and everything, the only difference is price. I have Patriots and I like them a lot.

    Unfortunately, Patriot RC only sells at HobbyTownUSA. Their website also isn't very "full".

    All I can say about them is that 6 cell nicd and antenna tubes of theirs I bought were great.

    I don't mean to sound rude here, but it's not that hard to do an ever so simple search all by yourself.

    The sizes were listed in the second post.

    A quick tower search for "Integy hex wrench" would bring up multiple sizes.

    These look like a good deal. I have Dynamite hex drivers. Only I scored my hex drivers, a bag of pinions, and a couple other things off my friend for $6.....

    If you become a member at Integy you get them for like 2.75 each. I thought it was a great deal since I already had the driver. Plenty of length on these also and the tips are removable.

    I just bought that dynamite one off ebay for $19.99 with $4 shipping. It looks pretty good. I wish I had a small electric screwdriver type thing. I only have access to a full size dewalt drill. Then again that also has its advantages, I have drilled alot with it for rc projects
