Im not sure if those are mud "shields", but more of a mud scraper for the inside of the wheels. Pretty good idea actually.


Built Ford tough, with Chevy stuff.

My 1987 Sears soldering iron crapped finally...So i need a good soldering station,i was looking at the Hakkos and the team check point ones..What's the consensus on a good valued charger???..I wanna spend a buck maybe buck n half...Cheers

Lookin good !

The Hako 936 is a very popular and excellent station for around a $100.00 or less, seach the forum for threads on this topic. Lots of good reading availible on this.

Over powered a tick for the track, for bashing you'll be very happy.

Yah nattys work, but it was more of a welcoming jab :-)
i ran gorilla tape on the inside of my tires before gluing them up , 0 balloning whatsoever

Hakko 936 - 01.25.2011, 12:12 AM

Go with the Hakko 936. You won't be disappointed. I picked one up two years ago on recommendations from others in here and I am really happy with the performance of it. Make sure that you acquire the right solder for the type of work you are planning on doing, and use a good flux paste to make sure that your solder joints are clean and without defects. Good luck with your choice.


SUPERMAXX YOUR LIFE.

One quick question..I mounted the mmm2200 with the associated mount,but it looks to me like its sitting straight up on the chassis...Should i use that funky 2 sided tape under it? Or what do you guys use??..I searched really couldn't find an answer...

Oh JERRY2 I went w/the 936 It was right in the budget!!!..Thanks for the heads up guys....

Good to hear. I am sure that you will be pleased once you get it setup and start using it for the first time. Please share your thoughts once you have gotten to use it. I also ordered a spare tip for the iron, but these tips are so heavy duty and tough that I think it will be quite some time before I ever get to use it. Great buy for the price.

I found the 2200kv castle didn't work with the associated kit myself. Switched to mikes kit.

I find that it is great fun once you get the procedure figured out. In most cases the best way is to flux and tin both the wires, and the object they are being soldered to using enough heat to make sure things fuse properly. Once everything is tinned, then it is pretty easy to fuse them altogehter. For small items I use one of those mag based soldering jigs to hold everything in place and it has a magnifying glass to help see what you are doing. This way you have both hands free to do the actual soldering. The Hakko soldering rigs heat up pretty fast also, which saves you time when you get in a hurry. Like anything you will get better with time and practice. Good luck with your new toy/tool.
