Since it's broken and out of commission, go ahead and buy a non-pull-start backplate, and a starter box. You'll save yourself from future headaches.

Yup, i recomend u getting a starter box also. You can get a duratrax 1/10 universal starter box for $50 brand new. Then buy the 12V battery w/Charger for 25$. These combined work flawlessly. Although it is heavy and somethings a pain to carry, ive seen too many people get fustrated with starting their engine with a pull start. Also frees up a lil HP on the engine.

actually, im thinking of making my own starter...from sratch. i have some old electrical motors, some wheels (that i need to trim of course)

hopefully, the motor will pull hard enough to start the truck...

Well, if you're gonna do that, you're going to need a lot of torque. Some starter boxes use two 550 motors (like what are used in an E-Maxx) and two 7.2v battery packs.

well if size isn't an issue go steal the motor out of your or your mothers washing machine. . .LOL

I like pull starts so I can start it up in the middle of a field instead of walking all the way back to my car.
