Cheap Tools & Equipment...

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Sooooo... I'm walking through Dollarama with my wife and kids, and POW! The light comes on!!!

There are a zillion bloody things in that store that you can (and do) use for rc racing!

zip ties (200 per bag)
precision screw driver set
hex tool set
small screw driver with rotating head (PERFECT for tuning)
digital timers
digital stop watch (lap timer)
Cleaning brush (tire cleaning)
Cleaning Solutions
Tackle Boxes (bits & peices)
and on...and on...and on...

Get everything above for $10.00!!! LOL...

Sure you all get my drift here! Those of us that are married, have to try and make our RC related purchases as 'under the radar' as possible!

Believe it or not, I have actually found Princess Auto items on hobby shop walls. Re-priced much higher of course. The Princess Auto bar code sticker was still on the item.
If you think you're in control, you're not going fast enough.:GRIN:

sorry to say but buying good tools is the best way to go they'll last a life-time and will not round off your screws. Nothing worse than a stripped screw in a not so easy to get place.
