Soon LSN will be doing a video review of some of our commonly used tools for our large scale cars and trucks. For the moment I will list some of the newest items that just came in at TGN Distributing as well as some of our favorites.
Check out ALL the tools TGN offers by browsing the tool section HERE.
New Large Billet Wheel Wrenches
Comes in two lenghts, one compact that fits in a small tool box and the big kahuna for maximum torque. It also has the conveient feature of a plug wrench on the end. Priceless item to have around any large scale. Prices range from $12.99 – $19.99.
HPI Baja sizes: long HERE or short HERE
Losi 5IVE-T size: long HERE or short HERE
Pocket Electric Screw Driver
I am not sure how anyone EVER went without these tools. Gone are the days of lugging around a full size power drill. These are a MUST HAVE for any large scale car or truck owner. Especially great for the 4 cage screws on the Losi 5IVE-T, makes removal QUICK! Check them out HERE.
Hex Power Bits
These are the best. Inser these into smaller hand tools with interchangeable tips or use them in your drill or power screw drivers.
2″ long HERE or short 1″ long HERE
Need that extra reach? The 6″ and 12″ extension by Milwaukee will come in very handy at times. Especially on the HPI Baja were sometimes you have to get the tool between a cage or chassis part. The 12″ version is HERE and the 6″ is HERE.
Keyless chuck for your Compact Hex Driver
This is a useful item that is often difficult to find at your local hardware store. It turns your compact power hex driver/screw driver into a drill. Allowing you to insert standard drill bits to drill out stubborn screws or drill your new shock pistons. Very useful and simple tool. Find those HERE.
Small Hole Drilling Adapter
Can’t get your small drill bits inside your monster hand drill or drill press chuck? Check out this little life saver. Works great for drilling small holes in shock pistons. It securely holds a #99 (0.0051″) to #60 (0.040″) wire gauge drill bit. Get yours HERE.
Thin head open end 13mm wrench
These little guys are strong and very useful on those pesky front and rear shock mounts on the Losi 5IVE-T. They allow you to hold the mount down while using a second wrench or socket driver to remove the nut holding onto the shock end. Available HERE.
Metric Cushion T-Handled Hex Wrenches
These have been one of our most popular items for some time now. One of my favorite things about these that we have never really promoted is that if they are ever showing wear and you want a fresh tip. Just take them to the sander and clean up the very end…new wrench in seconds. 9″ long versions HERE and shorter HERE.
Ya got to have a stand for these big and heavy 1/5 scales. TeamFastEddy has what you need. Check out the features of this stand HERE and add the Losi 5IVE-T top HERE.
The Pit Mat
Last but not least, ya got to have a cool pit mat. Place your Losi 5IVE-T or HPI Baja on a nice clean surface every time. Check out the Proline HERE and the JConcepts HERE.
