I'm with Fozy. I've had 3 different starters. Place the buggy on it/ prime it and the just use the glow started to push it down and viola!! Then smell of nitro!!. If you get a good one it will last years!!

The battery in a drill can always die. If you started dies just add plugs so you can plug it onto you 12v car battery.

By the way the stand you made is pretty slick.

The good thing about the pull start is the ease of being able to carry just the radio and ignitor with a little fuel and just go anywhere.

However,if you don't like to yank pull starts, the electric starters are good, just carry extra batteries.

I love starter boxes simply because it doesn't matter if your 1 way is dead or not whether you have a pull start or electric starter on it, it will start the engine all the time. Only draw back is it is too bulky to carry.

All my XTM models are fitted with the Tiger Drive by Sulivan and Spin Start Drive by Team Losi for the LST. The Spin Start is like the Roto Starter except faster and torquier. With the exception of my X-Factor and LST, the X-Terminator and Mammoth can be also started on the starter box.

I'm never going back to pull starts.

I guess every starting method will have its drawbacks as well as advantages, I suppose you will have to try out a few options and seee what works for you. I think you will find that the box will suit your needs, if i could get my maxx to work on a start box i would be extactic
