hmmmmm

The solder joints I made between the cut battery wire and the battery holder have NEVER broke. The ones that the manufacturer did on the car HAVE ALL BROKE. Just goes to show that 10 year olds kids in Taiwan can't solder worth spit.

I've lost count on how many solder joints have broken, I'd say about 15.

The gun ones have a trigger...you press the trigger to heat it up. The guns take less time to heat up. A gun cost more too. The pen irons are sufficent for me (I've got a 25 watt).

I must be lucky. I have 3 xmods and so far I have only soldered one ant. wire and two motor capacitors back on. I have had them since early December and they are used hard!

I carry my solder station with me every race night, and there hasn't been a single night that we haven't needed to use it at least once...

but single strand breaks easier if you move it too much. that stuff is used usually in house wiring.
