TRIED • TESTED • TORTURED
& NUT DRIVER SETS
Pro-level tools at an affordable price
Kits and RTRs generally include a few essential tools required for assem- bly or maintenance, but they’re not usually keepers you’d want to use for
serious wrenching. ;at’s why a set of high-quality drivers is usually an early purchase for
all but the most casual RC’ers. Dynamite is on
the case with new hex- and nut-driver sets,
which make it easy to upgrade your tool arsenal
and do it a;ordably.
Each set of four tools comes packaged in a
reusable latched case with a foam insert to hold
the drivers. ;e hollow handles are machined
from aluminum and have rotating, color-coded
plastic endcaps to identify driver type and size.
Tool size is also printed on the side of the driver
shaft, but it’s not easy to read at a glance. ;e
nut drivers are more clearly labeled, simply
because there’s more space for larger printing
on the nut sockets. ;e hardened-steel tips are
secured by a setscrew, and replacement tips
In use, the Dynamite tools feel lightweight
but substantial, with nice balance and precise
fit in the fasteners they’re designed for. ;e
handles are fluted for grip and stayed comfortable during extended bench sessions. One
thing I would like to see is a larger-diameter
handle for the larger tip sizes. All the drivers get
the same 18mm handle, which is fine for the
hex-driver and smaller nut-driver sizes, but a
fatter handle for the 7mm, 5/8, and 5/16 nut
drivers would allow more torque to be applied
more easily when tightening and loosening.

represent a good value for high-quality tools. If you’re currently slog-
ging through car maintenance with kit-supplied L wrenches and a tiny
box wrench for wheel nuts, you absolutely will not regret investing in
Dynamite hex and nut drivers to suit your vehicle. ;ey also
compare favorably with higher-priced drivers, some of
which have non-replaceable tips. Nice tools.
