Axial have given RC Car Action the scoop on their new set of tools, and we havent been given much more information than that, except that they are available in a wide range of tips, and those tips are replaceable, and from the picture we can see that the larger sizes are available also with ball tips. The handles use some beefy screw driver handles that look grippy and comfortable and sport a colour coded tip mount, although i personally still prefer the Hudy method of tool size recognition.
Yeh i know, even more stuff from Upgrade RC, but this time ill keep it short and just inform you that the masters of customization have released this Joker themed decal kit thats suitable for truggies.
