Agreed to a point you need to know what tools you can buy cheap and which ones you shouldn't skimp on.


And yes the GTO fly's. It's not the fastest thing on 4 wheels, but the raw power is unreal!

Anything that isn't ridiculously Chinese. Harbor Freight Tools are good SOMETIMES, but not always. For my IT contracting tool set half of the tools are from Harbor Freight. And pretty much most or all of my mechanics tool set is Harbor Freight. (Yay for being poor!)
