Most of the tools you need are standard mechanics tools. Small 1/4 drive socket set (I also like nut drivers as they are more convenient sometimes), some small screw drives (standard & metric), hex drives (you will have to get specialty tools to find hex drivers small enough, or just use the normal L shaped sets, they work but are not as convenient). Several hobby companies make hex driver and screw driver sets for RC. Wiha tools also makes small hex drivers and I know their stuff is really good quality steel. Not trying to sell their goods, just relaying my opinion as I own several of their driver sets.

I would just buy what you can afford. Get the basics to get started, then upgrade as you can afford to do so. As long as you buy good stuff and stay away from the cheap import stuff as already stated, they will last forever.

Edit - Wanted to add: Craftsman makes a set of micro pliers that I use a lot for my RC stuff. Other people also make similar stuff.

wow man - u have a nice set of tools by the sound of it. i just grabbed a multi socket/driver set for £5 and theres every driver i will ever need, and probably never need, in there. ive found that even the cheap tools are harder than the cheap steel/stainless/titanium screws that most rcs use.

nice tools are nice tho, dont get me wrong, i just hate it when they get "borrowed"

If you are looking for cheap tools go to princess auto. Some of their stuff isn't great but if you get the "power fist" stuff it isnt bad and CHEAP. I have a full set of Westward and snap on from when i worked in a garage but i buy Princess auto tools to keep in my car, etc. I see you are in birch hills, I'm not sure if ther is on in Prince Albert but i know there are some in saskatoon and regina.

Since this is a wheels thread I have a question.
I had my mt2 out today in about 1.5" of fresh snow and i kept getting ice built up inside my rims. At low speeds it was fine but i was getting it going pretty fast in second and the wheels would wobble so much from being off balance that i was afraid stuff was going to break. Especially at -15 Celcius. DOes anyone know of any rims with a 12 or 14 mm hex that are flat on the outside instead of dished in? I need some that will fit my mt2 but I'm not sure what offset i need in a maxx sized wheel and most sites dont tell you what the hex size is. I could use some tape to keep the snow out but it doesnt look so nice.
Thanks

with low profile tires u might get away with [link=http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/T-Maxx-Velocity-White-Offset-Dish-Wheels_W0QQitemZ6025563195QQcategoryZ44028QQrdZ1QQ cmdZViewItem]these[/link] they are the only ones i know of that are not spoked and might fit. u will need a 14mm hex tho.

the romulins have a 0.25" offset btw, if that helps...

Colby,
Firstly the antenna thing, it will still work fine, but range may be affected.
Secondly, re the hex size on those wheels, the chances of anyone in here (CEN forum) knowing that for certain is fairly slim, but its information thats easily attainable using GOOGLE (or similar) so instead of other people doing the work for you, give it a go yourself, I came up with the answer in approx 30 seconds by typing into GOOGLE "ofna pirate 2.2", try it dude enlighten yourself!!... (cause I aint tellin ya! )

I recommend the CEN aluminum wrenchs- they are a great price and the handles have a comfortable color coded grips for fast identification
do your hands a favor and get some decent wrenchs

No offers on the MT2, so I thought I would get it running again. What is the carb measurement for a new air filter? Or can you guys tell me the part number of the filter? I have been looking at [link=http://www.motorsaverfilters.com/]Motor Savers[/link].

EDIT: The motor is still the stock nt-16
