I'm a big proponent of the, you buy quality you cry once. You don't, you cry twice.

Dynamite has higher quality tools than that set. I bought the singles 1 at a time for about 7$ a piece and have been using them for years. That tool set will not last too long mine was garbage.
That kit is good for beginners and it does an okay job, I've had mine for around 6 months and a few of the hex drivers are starting to round out. The nut drivers and handle have been working fairly well. I think the one I have is the Duratrax one, it's the same kit just different name on it. I've seen that tool kit with a couple other brand names on it as well. I've always wondered who the oem is for it.

that's the thing though. i've had my MIP hex drivers for like 3 years and they are no where near getting dull, let alone rounded. i should've gotten the type that are removable from the handle, but hey, live and learn.

Like I said it's more for beginners and people who are just getting into the hobby. It's hard to tell someone who buys a sub $200 rc that they need $70 in tools.

i learned the hard way also though, and wish i would've just listened to the advice i got on here and from friends in the beginning. i ended up buying 3 total sets, because the first 2 royally sucked after a few times having to tear apart and rebuild trucks. i could've saved 40 bucks or more had i just bought good ones from the gate. you're going to need them for other stuff too at some point, so you might as well get good ones.

Hear ya. Think of your tools as an investment. There is nothing more frustrating than doing a "simple" repair then rounding out a tiny recessed hex screw head.

Everyone is a fan-boy of their own stuff. I would google hex driver reviews and decide for yourself how much you want to spend

I've spent about 25$ on my singles...
Please don't buy that kit. They really are low grade.

My LHS actually uses those drivers. They seem to be pretty decent. Although I don't have a lot of wrench time with them, I could be wrong. I've only used them to perhaps loosen or tighten this or that screw. Although a good friend of mine that works at the LHS and is one of the hot shoe Racers here locally told me to get MIP if I was going to get a set of my own. He said that the store probably only uses those Dynamite drivers because they didn't want to spend the money on MIP
