Default Busted Starter Box - Opinion needed

Hi all

for those who've read my last thread, i recently brought a nitro buggy and broke the pull start. Found out that i was making the fuel too rich with too much air which was the cause of the problem. Well we fixed that problem and got rid of the excess fuel and also leaned it back up to factory default and tested the fly wheels to make sure its not too clogged.

Instead of getting a replacement pull start, i decided to get a starter box instead. but after 2 days of fun (sarcasm) - with mild success the starter box was dead with a small puff of smoke. before this happend the engine was very weak, i thought the battery was faulty so i recharged it with the instructions given by the hobby shop. well, then it blew.

question been,

1. How durable are the motors (the ones i got were 2x 550).
2. If i pressed it too long (maximum 15 sec yanks with about 4-5 goes in a role) is that considered too aggressive to break the motor?

I'm only hoping its my bad luck i got a dud, but if i did something wrong i would rather know now then break another one... thanks guys
