Hopefully you won't have to tell us in the future that your Lipo Box turned your car/truck/or house into a '787'...........the caution here is that when you experience the severe 'stall current' on a Lipo, think 'short circuit'.
The Ofna 'chrome top' box with the 'direct drive' motor didn't have the torque for several of my GT motors. The large drive wheel gave up some torque advantage the 'belt drive' types with a smaller drive wheel had. I've tried beveling the chassis plate to get starter drivewheel access, made sure the motor mounts didn't hold the flywheel too far up in the chassis and made sure to use right diameter flywheel.
I've also got a box that has the ability to add the 'backup boost' that was mentioned. Proper pin lineup and 'engine preheat' for newer engines is always a good thing.
I vote 'NO' on the starter box 'Lipo'...........
