I like the others you guy's are talking about but for the money take a look at this http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...10000003+90401
Good clutch one speed that's it's downfall a little slow but has been good for me. I found mine around Christmas time I think I paid $25-28 dollars for it on sale.

+1 .. plus the makita doesn't weigh that much.. not sure which one your using integra but unless you're a girly man the makita is a perfect tool for r/c and like he said he might need it for other things around his house so it's perfect for him ..
I charged the first batt on my new set about a month ago and just this weekend did i recharge the same batt.. the impact and other batt are at work and i use it everyday and i have to charge that maybe once a week ..

The Makita also comes with that belt holster.. I'm sure i can rig that thing to my TM bag for easy access.

My main thing was i want something with power, small in size, and most important a clutch. If screws are sent in to fast the plastic gets hot and that can't be good.

That Makita set-up is sweet. You will be surprised how often you use the impact driver also.
The Hitachi is nice, but as a man, I could never allow myself to buy an electric screwdriver. Might as well be pink.

The impact driver make short work of stubborn/stripped screws. It will become one of you favorite tools in the box.
Look at it this way, the combo is worth the extra $33 just for the 2nd battery.

the single unit comes with 2 batteries and the holster that the duel kit doesn't come with.. i would never bring that big case to the track so that holster is good for me.. idk still havta think about it.
