Default What tools do you guys use or need?

Hey all

So I have been working to bring in more needed tools for large scale use. You can see some of our newer tools and our favorite ones in a new LSN post here: http://largescalenews.com/2012/02/ne...-and-hpi-baja/

We want to know what your using or what you would like to see at tgn. Ideas? Thoughts?

Thanks for any feedback y'all.

bondhus ball drivers in a full metric set. Super cheap and pretty good quality. They come with tiny sized metrics which are good for rod collars. +1000 on the Metric power bits in extended length if possible.

Good screw guns with clutches like this would be good.
Picks for cleaning out your screw heads before removing them are good.
Metric taps from 2-6 would be good.
6mm 8mm 10mm hex drivers.
Inexpensive digital scales for car setup.
I hope some of these ideas help.

I need some graphite powder to service my pullstarter. I don't want those tiny tubes like from home depot or lowes. I would like a large bottle that will last a long time. Where is the best place to get some? Preferably with free shipping. Amy ideas?

I also use the dry graphite spray.
Works good on your drive pins and cups.

Careful when you spray. It's messy stuff.

I need a 'FIX IT' button in my tool kit. Something breaks, I press it and wait a few minutes enjoying a cold beer while my RC is magically repaired.
