suspension mount hex size ansmann mad rat
Does anybody know what size hex key is required for the screws which mount the bottom of the suspension to the lower arms on the Ansmann Mad Rat?

I thought they where the same size as (For example) the gearbox cover but the suspension mounting require a slightly bigger key. The perfect fitting Allen key I brought with me to keighley (from Mansfield) spins round and I can't fit my new suspension.

I'm going to pop to the local model shop tomorrow to pick up the right sized key/driver so I thought it'd be worth asking on here first. If not I'll just take the car with me and try :D

The mad rat is also known as team C Jekyll and I have one for my son - it is pretty much 2mm metric Allen drive all round. Unless you have a 2nd hand one that previous owner has swapped, I'd go for 2mm.
In fact other than the pinion grub which is 1.5mm I can't think of any other screw head sizes on it!!

Yep, Deffo 2mm

Thanks I'll go get a proper metric one tomorrow. Think they are slightly rounded off and I bet I have an imperial one :)

I took the car to modelspeed in Keighley and tried a 2mm, fits like a glove thanks.
