Cordless driver ranks right up there in my top 5 best things for rc I've ever bought. Makes maintenance so much better. The lipo batt in mine died and I duct taped a 4 cell 1/12 scale battery to the top of it.. lol Most ghetto looking gun at the track but it's probably the torque-est thing there too!!

We use/abuse this one at work,most of the techs have it last 2+ years.I actually have the second version that has a headlight I just couldnt find a link for it I think I bought it at sears.Between the 9 of us we have tried almost every brand sold & none have held up as well as the skil.


For bits I use these, They also last & are easy to get & their made out of drill bit blanks so they stay sharp very pretty much forever.


& if you dont have a local hobby shop carolinasrc is cheap & the easiest to use.
