What are the best drivers to use? I need to invest in some, especially 2mm.
Are RPM any good? e.g. RPM (#80640)
My mate has the ones you are looking at for over a year and they are awesome for the money and show no wear and tear at all so they must be sweet......peace
Famous last words...watch this!!!!
I have this to carry around if I need a set.
They work good. No problems. I use my t-handles when i'm not on the go.

Have not heard any feedback on the RPM hex drivers, but my Hudy set has stood the test of time.
If you do a search, you will find tons more info on this topic.

Proline makes some very decent ones. Have lasted 4 years with much use.
Lots of options for good hex drivers, but the absolute best I've ever used are Thorpe/MIP drivers. They're a little pricey, so I just buy the ones I really need and have a full set of Integy drivers for general use. Any drivers that are known to see a lot of use or torque, I buy MIP.
my friend started playing with my aluminum handle dynamite 0.050 hex wrench one time and just started stabbing my table furiously, I was totally ready to call him out for breaking an $8 hex driver but it was just fine. The integys are nice but the steel will break if you are abusive, I used my integy driver as a lever to tighten my slipper clutch and broke the tip.
I like turtles.
^^ I have a feeling any hex driver would break of you use it as a lever.
You should give your buddy 2 things. First, a bit of a "hello, how are ya?" Right up side the head for abusing your tools like that. Then get him some Ritalin cause it sounds like he has some issues. My friends are ultra impressed with my collection of tools. They don't even want to touch them becaus they look so fancy.
One aspect of an increasing R/C addiction is the increasing need for quality tools.
My buddy knows he is risking his fingers when he uses my tools the wrong way.
After replacing the worn cheapo wrenches with Hudy, I am a happy camper. I still prefer driving over working on my cars, but if there is work to be done after all, better do that with quality tools.

The dynamite sets are ok, but after a while the tips start to round off. I recently bought an RD Logics 2mm driver and so far have been very impressed with its fit and quality. I would prefer a hudy, but the rd was at the lhs. Spend money on the driver sizes that will get used the most, with traxxas that is the 2mm and 2.5 mm. Personally I don't see buying a whole set of them, unless you have other uses for them as well as your trucks. I plan on getting a few more but when I need them, the 2mm to me was the size I kept having issues with. For now I am cautiously optimistic about the rd logics driver.

I personally own a set of RD Logics and the HobbyTown I work for has a set of the Dynamite wrenches for some time now and both have been very reliable. I have yet to hurt the RD Logics even though I've used them in my cordless drill and the only problem we've had with the Dynamite wrenches was when somebody decided to use the 1.5mm hex as a prybar.................
One of the VERY FEW Integy products I would EVER use... Their hex drivers I've had since 2005, busted 1 shaft from forcing it too much and replaced the shaft...
Being in the racing game and having 4 RC's they get used A LOT... Plus I love the fact they don't roll off the pit table like my Hudy set likes to (Hudy is great but expensive).... http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXKTP2

I spent What??
Snap-On makes a good set, but then again, it's all I ever used. So far I have yet to even scratch them, even with a good bit of use. If they start to round, the Snap-On truck comes on thursday, and they are guaranteed for life.
