Nice tools, how does the screw driver work on the GP123 with the factory mufflers installed?
Seems to be a challenge with the standard screw driver!

The Pro Tune Stick in its design is similar to that of a screwdriver. If there is something in the way like a muffler its going to be tough to turn the screws with any type of tool.

The plug puller is just that, a tool that lets you pull the plug out of the cap without using pliers or your fingers. Or when re-seating it to check you ignition.

The Cap Puller is designed to pull the cap off the spark plug when its in the head.

I think that Martin could not have explained it any better. Take another look at his video if you have a couple of minutes.

If you have any other questions feel free to give us a call or send us a email.

Thanks for your interest,

Scott

Yep, and I have used a rock as a hammer before too. Still went out and bought the hammer...

You can always tell a good mechanic by the tools in his tool box. I've got a few rocks in there too.

BTW: Save a tree

Crafting a perfectly functioning tool that is incapable of causing any damage is hardly a rock in lieu of a hammer. It’s pretty hard to make a buck in RC. Good luck with your products.

Any chance you will be making the cap puller for the 1/4” miniature spark plugs? They are quite delicate and after using the cm6 version I’d like to see a version for the smaller plug.

There used to be a tool made used to adjust the gap of the ignition points in GM engines that was made of a flexible cable like extension with an allen tip that worked great.
maybe something like that would work in angled access applications.

We tried it. Didn't work as well as we wanted it to. Discontinued it. Not to say we have not looked into again. But we are re visiting it's possibilities.
