Questions?? "nice" truggy + pull start?

Gentlemen,

I am moving onwards and upwards from the Revo and looking at getting a D8T or MBX6T (I know, each end of the spectrum).

Anyone put a pull start on either of these? Is it possible?

Time at a real track is currently a small percentage of my running time and I prefer to keep what I have in the pack to a minimum. I have used a pull start for a while now and don't have a problem with it.

Thanks and glad I found this site, it appears to have a wealth of knowledge!

Not really a good idea a revo holds a small block which is alot easier on a pull start then a big block. Honestly just pack a bump box and never have a issue nor worry. Plus all big block engines that are pull start friendly are pretty much no good. Not all but 99% are only engine i can think of is a lrp .30 which is good luck racing because its basher material and drinks fuel like a drunk man needs another beer.

Yeah, that is what I was afraid of. Problem#1: Trying to get a nice .21 engine w/ pull start. Problem #2: Getting pull start to work in truggy.


Have to bite the bullet and go for the box....

Pullstarts/Rotostarts are essentially Giant Air leaks, I would highly advice a Bump box.

Looks like I will be bumping the box....

Do they make one that runs off of a car 12v outlet? Don't want to have to buy more batteries.

Most people here will tell you to go with a 4-cell LiPo instead of a 12v source like a car battery. The cranking power is especially useful for turning over brand new engines. Get something like http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...k-2100mAh-148V for only $40.
