01-10-2007, 01:18 AM
I am only used to metric sizes. 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5mm, 3mm nuts and 5mm nuts.

Was wondering what nut drivers i need for a B4 and B44 cars?

What do i need for the main screws is it 1/16" ?

And 3/32" I need to adjust the diff screw bolt?

what about the nut driver for the shock tower lock nuts?

what size do i need for the nut for the wheels?

I actually use a 2mm driver for the 5/64 screws and it fits pretty well.

Only issue i ever had with the drivers was when i tried to take out a 0.050" screw that was rusted grimed and bent into place, trying to take it all apart quickly and the end just snapped on me, i don't think much would have survived that though, at that size :( All round pretty good quality tools and fairly chunky handles too, and the price isn't bad

I have snapped many brands of 0.050 drivers, not the AE one yet, but like you say, the size of the driver is the problem, not the quality.
