Finally bought me one these tools. I had been having problems getting two axle nuts off of a bug that I am working on for someone. I beat on it, stood on the breaker bar, hammered on the breaker bar, soaked it in pb blaster, and used four foot pipe over a breaker bar and it still wouldnt budge. 60 seconds with the torque dude and the nut was off. I recommend this tool for anyone that works on there own cars. They are $60 bucks at vwparts.net

The day I have trouble with my 4 foot cheater pipe is the day I buy one of those. The only thing that I've heard bad about those torque tools is some are of questionable quality and have a tendency to break. I've been told that it's better to spend the money on the one that costs more for that reason.

I dont know about the quality of the one that I bought (it is pretty heavy) but it has already done a flywheel and rear axle seal. My four foot cheater bar with a breaker bar with my dad jumping on it didnt break the axle nut loose. Buy the tool you wont regret it and it is easier to make sure you have it torqued down correct.

Comes off in like 5 seconds with an air impact wrench. Also makes quick work of taking off the lug nuts.

I love mine. Had to buy a couple of longer lug bolts from autozone, but other than that, I've had no problems. Got mine on sale a while back from Cip1.

I hit this one with a 500lb impact it didnt move. When cars sit for years and rust up this tool is the only thing that I have used that will break them loose. I can usually get them off with the impact also but not these.
