you are maintaining your vehicle or putting one together, having
high quality tools make these tasks much easier. There are so
many different brands of tools on the market that someone can
get lost trying to choose which to buy. Today we are looking at
Hudyís lineup of tools; letís have a look and see what they
have to offer.
tools came in the new Exclusive Edition Tool Bag. Itís a high
quality bag that is durable and can hold up to 30 individual
tools. It's stylish looking and will definitely set you apart
from the crowd. Our bag is custom adorned with Car Action
on the front of the case.
offers its tools individually as well in sets. You can pick out
the exact tools you need or you can go with a basic set of tools.
In our tool set, we have a wide variety of tools since we work
on so many different types of projects here at RC Car Action.
a closer look at the tools you can see that they have a high
grip aluminum handle that is diamond patterned so you wonít
slip while using the tools. They say Hudy on one side and on the
other side Hudy engraved RC Car Action in a very
professional looking script-style font.
shafts of the tools are Hudyís trademark Spring Steel. Itís
a type of steel that Hudy makes to provide long life and
maintain its shape even under the most severe abuse. Some of the
tools we choose for our kit included the ball end tip. This
allows you to use the tool at an angle with no lose of grip. All
the shafts are removable, should you do happen to break one or
wear one out, and a set screw holds them in so you can tighten
them back down. In the two week period that I have been using
these tools, none of the set screws came lose, and none of the
tips broke or show any sign of wear. I have been using them
everyday at work, and bring them home to work on projects. They
get a lot of use, but continue to look and work as good as when
they were brand new.
toolset we ordered came with a basic set of tools, but we choose
to add a 17mm wrench, three different sizes of turnbuckle
wrenches, a body reamer, glow plug/clutch nut socket wrench and
a flywheel/clutch multi-tool. The hinge pin hole reamers and
Phillips screwdriver that we choose were of the profiTOOL
product line which means they use a lightweight plastic handle,
and have they tip size marked on the side. Just like the rest of
the tools, they are lightweight and feature removable tips.
thing I really love about these tools is the way their tip size
is marked. As you can see in the picture, there are notches in
the top of the tools. Three full notches means that tip is a 3mm
tip. The other tip is a 1.5mm tip that you can easily read
because of the full notch, and the 2nd small notch. Some tools
from Hudy donít have these at the end, and instead the size is
indicated on the side of the tool. Its actually engraved and not
just paint, so there will be no wear on the numbers, you will
always be able to see what size the tool is.
problem I have with some tool manufactures is that they make a
tool out of solid aluminum or steel. While this might be
durable, if youíre wrenching on your vehicle for hours on end
the tools seem heavy and your hand will get tired. The Hudy
tools have hollow handles made out of aluminum, and the strength
is where you need it, in the Steel tip. A single tool is very
light and feels balanced in your hand.
all I would have to say these tools are some of the best Iíve
ever owned. They have high grip handles, removable tips, easy
tip identification and are super strong. They are lightweight
and work very well. On top of all that you can get them custom
engraved, so no more friends ďborrowingĒ your tools. I used
these tools on a number of projects over the last couple weeks,
and there are no signs of wear. They held together strong and
were easy to keep track of thanks to the easily tip
identification marks. I would recommend these tools to anyone.óBrandon
