    I have had mine a little over a year,no problems at all[except operator error],Stick welds great,even runs 6010s fine ,with dig set at 100.
    Ihave tigged a fair amount of SS with it,very smooth arc.
    I will warn you,the machine makes a lot of noise,sounds like some type of bomb getting ready to blow,all kinds of little buzzes and strange electronic stuff,but I am told that is normal.and it must be because mine welds fine.
    It is a lot of money,but it is a great machine.

    Between that and a Mig you got it all for motor sports. Boiler is right, dont overlook that its a good stick machine too. There is a time and place where the 120V option might be good.

    I bought a new Millermatic 212 last year. I really wanted a more portable Tig that could lay beads down like the 180 does. The price isnt really that bad anymore. I just submitted a PO from work and I can get the Dynasty with the contractor package along with the fingertip torch for 3100.00 shipped.

    I have a similar combo mine are older models but I have a mm210 and a Dynasty 200dx and honestly I don't believe there is a more formidable combo, for mig and tig then these two machines. It covers all the light to middle guages extremely well. With these two machines I have covered most work and rarely found need for more machine. I do also have a XMT300 and m64 wire feeder but have really only needed its top end a few times above the capacity of my mm210.

    The Dynasty is my favorite Tig that I have used, its wave form shaping makes doing even the thinnest of Aluminum sheet metal a proud moment. I have welded down to .008 sheet in lap joints and been WOWed by its abilities. It makes me look like a better welder than I really am.

    Are you referring to the newest dyn200? can you describe how the new waveforms affect alluminum welding?
