Not sure which vehicle you have, but you can do something similar... Get the starting unit out of a traxxas vehicle.

However, I would think that you would also need the motor though, since the gear reduction unit is specific...


P.s. That's as close to a weed wacker setup as I can think of...[/img]

here is another way...
a voltage regulator off the recieer pack. inline push button (momentary switch) with wire to glowplug. push button and hold it to start, letgo and power stops. a cheaper regulator chip from electronics supply would work. about $2-3, and a $3 push button.

to cheap out, you could hook a set of wires to one battery in the reciever pack with a push button. a toggle switch would work but solder an led inline to remind you when it is left on. and you drain one battery faster, though after release the batteries will spread it back out a little.
