hey exheliguy,

If it is a new buggy, or the motor is new it likely has great compression. Pre-heating the engine cooling head to 180-200 will make it much easier for the starter turn over the engine. You can use a heat gun or even your wife /girlfriends hair dryer.

What battery is currently in your starter? You can use any 12v battery that fits in the box, two 7.2v batts together to give you 14.4, a 14.8 Lipo, or even an external 12v power source (lawn mower or car battery or 12 v power supply) Good luck !
