For $20 you can't beat it. I'm new to R/C cars and just purchased the Slash 4x4 Ultimate. Gets the job done for when I need to fix and/or replace a part(s). It's not Snap-On but works well. I'd recommend it for new R/C owners. I'm not giving it a full five stars because it is an inexpensive tool quality.
Availing this tool set for six months to service slash 4x4, it is not broke, I'm happy with the set. Sorry for my English, Google translator such a hellion)
The ratchet slips, so that I cannot unscrew tightly screwed nuts and screws. This is unfortunate because the rest of the kit seems good.
While is is full of useful bits, the rachet hadle completely fell apart after about a month, which pretty much makes the rest of the tools wortless. Don't buy it.
HORRIBLE!!! I actually really liked this set at first an was excited by the length and interchangeable ends. But after not much use it got impossible to get the ends in the handle. I am sure it is something defective with mine because at first it worked but i dont think it should fail so easily. This set is designed to be interchangeable many times through a build. Also since it has special ends and not universal quick connect ends the set is useless with out the handle. Would not suggest to buy. I purchased the OFNA set that has quick connect ends that fits in almost any handle you could buy at Lowes.

would not buy it again. The Driver didnt last long
As in Sam's review, yes I also stripped my ratchet handle. Overall this set is great value, but I just wish the manufacturer would pay more attention to this ratchet. It could use a little more juice. I hope they upgrade it.
awsome fits everything i rebuilt my entire car with it. i used to strip everythin now nothin is stripped.
Overall not a bad set, 1.5mm hex driver is quite soft and does seem to strip pinion grub screws however.
Great arrangement of hexes and sockets to work on your Traxxas RC, but unfortunately the quality just isn't there and the handle stripped out on day 2 of extremely light use. I figured "I'm not running a hobby shop so I'm not going to use these tools all the time, so why invest a ton on money?" This set ended up being a complete waste because the bits aren't standard sized so without the handle theyre useless. Good concept, poorly executed.
Great start up tool kit. It has all the right sizes you need plus more. Great for price but I can see how people say that it strips out. You just have to be easy on it and if you are it's a great kit.
It's cheap for a set of tools, but you get what you pay for. The ratchet started slipping the first time I used it. Returned it immediately. Forget the ratchet with interchangable bits and buy a set of individual tools.
My wife gave me a Traxxas Stampede 4x4 VXL for my birthday this year, and I immediately started looking for hop-ups for it! It truly is an addiction! I read some sage advice on the Traxxas forums about purchasing a good toolkit before anything else. After receiving my Dynamite Traxxas Startup Tool Set, and performing a couple of upgrades with it - I could not agree more! It's made working on the truck a joy, simply because I do not have to root around in my toolbox hoping to find the right hex head drivers and wrenches to get the job done. I may look at upgrading to a HUDY set at some point, but for now I am more than happy with this toolkit!

This is a great starter set...sure why pay more, when this set will work fine... the price is right... I've had mine going into my second year now... haven't broken anything...long reach too... for those hard to get at bolts...on crawlers and such... some issues with the handle at times... yet not enough to not buy these...
Very pleased with the set, great value for the price. The night I received it I tore apart my slash and had every tool I needed. The only complaint is the driver feels weak like others have mentioned or even stripped theirs out. Any screw that I felt I was pushing the driver too hard I used either an allen wrench or screwdriver to loosen it. But eventually all the screws on the truck will be tightened with the driver so it should never be too tight for the driver to loosen. Great little kit for the price, I'd recommend this to someone who is looking for a good cheap starter set of R/C tools for a Traxxas. If you're tired of using tiny little allen wrenches and other random tools definitely pick up this set!
I love the nut drivers for taking wheels on and off. Some of the bits work wonders. But the bits do wear down pretty quick. I use once size the most while i was doing a restoration on my slash and it rounded off half way through my project. It also has ruined some of my screws. The larger and the smallest tools, and the nut drivers work perfectly. i give it a 3 star. Why? Since some of the tools don't last very long. If you dont use them for heavy work i use them for. Since i maintane 5 rc vehicles at the same tim i wear out allens veryquick. If you use them for very little it is a very nice tool et.
While probably not the absolute best tool set you could have, it IS one of the best for the money in my opinion. You really do get what you pay for here, and what you pay for is a huge upgrade from the included tools (which suck). The only thing I don't really like is how you have to constantly switch heads, but, not really anything wrong that, so it's just an annoyance. If you like to wrench on your rig, this thing is worth every penny!
This set not everything possible but everthing normally needed I think good value for money. We just made a lot of upgrades to my slash and it was perfect for the job. Glad I included it on the order. My son says he has to have one.
Overall an excellent set of tools. definitely a great value for the price. Only complaint I have is ratchet handle stripped out, could have possibly been user error but I am not for sure. Is there anyway to buy the ratchet separately?
My boyfriend bought this kit and I like it .. I'm finishing a further appeal and ordered two more parts .... Karen / Fernando .. Sao Paulo / Brazil
