I don't use a drill....over kill......get 1 of those cordless screw drivers. I use the Ryobi quick turn at only 4 volts it has plenty of power to build kits and its small and light weight. Its $30 at home depot. Mines over 4 years old and still working great.

I also use a black and decker. I've seen people at my local track use full on 20v drills with the torque maxed. I guess you live and learn.

I use this Makita. It is definitely overkill for RC cars and it costs almost $200 but the quality is top notch. The auto stop clutch is a really nice feature for RC or computers or anything "fragile". It ends up being an everyday tool instead of just an RC tool.

Me and a few friends have this https://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-4-...P54L/205545276 Been running good for over 3 years so far. No issues.

THIS for $30 you cannot go wrong. I have built all my 5 cars with it, even in speed 1 and works great. Plenty of power battery lasts for ever.

Hitachi DB3DL2 Hitachi DB3DL2

I love mine, been using it for nearly two years with no issues and the clutch works well, even with the real small screws. It comes with two batteries so you can charge one while still using the driver.

One thing though, it's adjustable between pistol-grip and straight...if it flips between the two while you're using it, it can pinch you pretty good.

You can't go wrong with Makita as it has the best quality and best performance. It is expensive but totally worth it. There is a reason why most of the pros use Makita.

The Hitachi also carries a lifetime warranty.

+1 Hitachi makes an outstanding cordless driver. 100% satisfied with mine. Doesn't hurt that its a full $100 cheaper than the Makita. I can promise the Makita isn't $100 better!
