Who the hell uses torx for such tight bolts, will be replacing it with a proper bolt if I ever get it out.
As far as I am concerned, Torx is one of the best thing on earth ... Particularly in tight places
. Torx are 99% class 8.8 or 12.9.
One thing however, it's pretty easy to mix sizes. You can easily use a T40 while it should have been T45 ... Oups ... And another thing ... Torx bolts are 10 times more expensives when you can find them...
