Default Which soldering tips for 1/8th scale?

I've decided to finally learn how to solder, this should be interesting. Anyway, I'm going to get one of these rebadged Hakko 936's off ebay. It comes with 3 tips, one picked for you and 2 additional. I have an 1/8th scale buggy, any advice on which ones I should go with would be appreciated. Link is below, thanks in advance.

3/4/9 look like the better ones to me.

I've been using the stock tip that came with my Hakko 936 (only $74 from Fry's). It looks like #2, maybe #3. I've been able to solder multiple sets of EC5 connectors and an RX8 without any trouble.
