I ordered a DuraTrax 1/10 universal box today from Tower Hobbies with a 12V battery for $79. Not too bad I guess. I think it will be nice to use a starter box as the primary means of starting, with the pull start as a backup starting system. Besides it's easier to detect problems a lot sooner using a starter box, i.e., bad glow plugs, fuel delivery problems, etc. If it doesn't start pretty darn quick using the starter box, you know you've got a problem with something.
