The team 1 works.....but it weighs like 10,000 pounds, very little tech support, and it RUSTS like no tomorrow.....its like owning a car in michigan....it's also a HUGE power hog, so you really can't use it at the track, as you will either get a crappy zap from low voltage or worse yet, blow the circuit....or trip people's chargers (you will make many friends this way)

The Thunder RC is the best AC powered zapper out there.....its light weight compared to the others, doesn't rust.....and, you get TECH SUPPORT! It also draws VERY little power, so you never have to worry about the problems the team 1 unit has....we use this zapper exclusively in the shop at Team br00d Racing....

The Trinity Portable, is very pricey.....I don't even know if you can get them anymore....its very small (about the size of 3 vhs tapes stacked up)....and does not required power to work. It works by screwing the armature down into the unit, so you can saturate the magnets with the large NEO magnet in it......I take this thing to all big events, mainly because it provides a GOOD zap, while also being small, portable, and requiring no power....

The ERP is the worst POS made......when you let off the switch, it actually sucks some power back out of the magnet....avoid it like its a hooker in mexico....

Later EddieO
Hey Eddie, I read that you use a Team1 zapper and I was wondering how many times you zap the magnets during a session--how many times do you press the button? Thanks

i have a question. what would everyone say the erp zapper is worth?, is it like a collectible thing or just a paperweight, it is obvious it is not recommended for zapping motors. would it be worth the cost of shipping? (as in free but have to pay shipping?)

Michael makes an awesome product! You guys will not go wrong with his zapper! It works like a charm and draws very little power.
