It'll come in handy for removing lug nuts from those long a$$ ARP wheel studs

I use the 14v one because it's smaller, lighter, and comes with a bunch of accessories for driving 3" deck screws etc.

Track day use:
loosen all lugnuts with breaker bar.
zip 'em off and on
torque with torque wrench
next car

the two batteries will do at least 40 tires if used this way (5 cars, 8x rims and tires)

I have the 14v impact driver.... you could sit there until the battery runs out and it still won't get the lugnuts free, they're only torqued at 85nm; I would hope the 18v will loosen them after a couple of tries.

I have the 18v one, it's seriously badass. I can do tires all day long at the track with it (at the last event I swapped out my tires 4 times, once to get R-comps on, the next to rotate them, the next time to put new ones on, the last to put the street tires back on).

Best part was that it does the lugnuts super duper tight, I never had any worries about wheels falling off.

I ended up picking up the more powerful 18V 2KO or something gun. $150, and came with two batteries, 17/19/21mm impact sockets, and adapters for drill bits.

It's freaking awesome. Takes lugs off no problem...and soooo quiet!

^That's the one I picked up. It's already payed for itself with the removal and intallation of many drift wheels/tires, and drilling holes for zip ties. The batteries come fully charged too! I find myself just using this alot in the shop instead of getting out either the air or electric impact.

I was gonna recommend an corded impact gun, I usually dont endorse CT but if that one does what It claims looks like a good deal!

edit:

reviews are pretty bad on it, I got one from princess a long time ago and have used it for a lot of stuff. Its got a lot of torque, more than the crappy air gun at the shop.

Torquing up stuff should be left to a proper torque wrench. Impact guns are for getting tight, stuck stuff apart and/or speeding things up.

The 3KO is OK, I have the 14V and the 18V - had them for a long time and only one failure of a 18V battery -

What I can say is it was my first try with cordless impacts and it did convince me to buy the makita ones which are obviously better...

Stay the hell away from the other one they sell (it's very clearly a rebadged jobmate product), mine went bad after a week, got another one that died too and had to argue up and down to get my money back (got a credit)
