I have the drill version of this one! Very very good tool i use it for more than just RC. It's a very stout drill for other household things as well

While the DB3DL is great and all (I Own a couple and Love em) You really should look into the newer version as Losi Racer has stated. the DB3DL2 is what your After. Best money you'll ever spend in a while.

same one i have derek, good little driver!! have had mine for almost 2 years and no problems, beats paying 70,80-100 bucks for one, unless you have a cordless drill driver class at the local track..., you will like it just as much as a 100.00 one

the Sheer weight of the Hitachi is the Big bonus for me, WELL worth the price, Not to mention Dual batteries to Swap on the fly instead of waiting on a charger.
