5.5mm and 7mm the only nut drivers you will need?
 
I have a SCX10 OG RTR and noticed that I only need 5.5mm and 7mm nut drivers for maintenance.

I just got a Capra kit and haven't even touched it yet due to life. :)

Does the same apply? Basically all I need is 5.5mm and 7mm for nut drivers? I already have a set of MIP hex drivers from my RC helicopter days.

Trying to minimize my tools or should I just get the Dynamite metric nut driver set and be done with it? If just the two sizes I was going to go Wiha.

Sizes , yes but remember there are always a few nuts that the drivers are too long for. , then it’s needle scaring nose pliers or a set of flat wrench’s, WIHA tools are top notch for me


Hang up and Drive

Thanks! I already have a set of Sears mini open ended and box wrenches in mm sizes. A very nice set and I don't think they make them any more. They were Made in USA. Those were the days! :D

I was going to suggest getting a 5.5mm open ended wrench instead of a 5.5mm nut driver because I use the open ended wrench about 10 times more than a driver on M3 nuts.

Actually looking at my Capra, it has almost no (and it may be zero) M3 nuts so a 5.5mm wrench isn't really needed to build one.

Oh? Let me take a look at the online manual then. Haven't open the box yet. :D

EDIT: you're right! Looking on the PDF I found zero M3 nuts. Saved me some $$$. :)
