That's the iron I use, perfect for $30 bucks. Canadian Tire is the best.

Martyn, keep you receipt on this one - you will go through at least one a year .... for some reason they overheat and melt the internal wires. I have had three replaced so far.

The iron is awesome for building batteries though.

Well I have seen people who swear by soldering guns but I have never had much luck with them.

you may want to go ahead a get a good soldering station you won't mind taking to the track with you to solder your batts and motors in and out of the car even if you plan to keep using plugs for the time being.

A good choice from the weller line can be found here for about $60.-
