Thanks for the offer. I will keep that in mind when I get the parts and get it back together.

I'm staring to think that our car is out to get us. I stopped into our LHS to find that they actually had a starter box in stock. Here is a link to the starter that I purchased --> Starter Box. When I got it home I removed the vehicle placement pegs so that I could figure out the best alignment for them. While I was working on getting the pegs in the correct locations, I happened to press the car all the way down into the starter and noticed that the starting wheel is still about 1/4 inch away from engaging with the motor, the car is sitting to high. With no height adjustments on the starting wheel, I guess it's back the store for this starter box and unfortunately a lost weekend of fun. Can someone with a RC8, please recommend a starter box that will work with this car?

I dont see how the car wouldnt engage with the wheel. I used a ofna box that was similar to that and worked fine. Are you spacing the chassis between the pegs? Make sure you have the chassis sitting flat on the bars and not the pegs.

I had all of the pegs removed and it was pressed all of the way down. I haven't returned it yet, maybe I'll try once more just to make sure. Which box from Ofna do you use?

I think its because you have a roto start backplate, and roto start engine mounts, which mount the engine a little higher.

If you got a normal engine mount it would sit the engine down about 1/2 inch.

H20, Take that box back and get a Ofna 10244 starterbox. It's the box with the dual 775 motors in it. I bought one two weeks ago for my RC8 and I'll NEVER go back to that starter wand. PM me your email address, and I'll help you locate one for a good price.
