Default Electric starters

new to nitro. Have couple of large scale trucks and struggling with how delicate nitro pull starts are. I bought my 7 year old a hobao ss Truggy for Xmas and have already been through a pull start.

can anyone recommend a decent electric starter for this Truggy please.

thanks

If you break pullstarters you are doing something wrong.And i do not recommend e starters as they can shredd one way bearings wich are usually just as expensive as a pullstart.And you can often repair pullstarts,on one way bearings it is technically possible to change the bearing inside the hex,but i have done it once and will not do it again because it is hard and you have to be very carefull so you do not bend or break something.

just get starter box and be done with it. Youíll wonder why you didnít do it sooner! Using a starter box will Allow you to start any engine you want, including the engine your truggy came with. No more broken pull starts or bad one way bearings. Just reliable starting every time. I love running Nitro and 1/8 scale truggy is my favorite!

Just know you may need to look into lower engine mounts because I believe the stock mounts wonít allow this starter box wheel to touch. I agree starter box all the way but I know when I had that truggy along time ago I wanted to use my starter box but had issues. I believe those issues were what I said.

Edit.
My muggy was the one that had tall motor mounts. My bad*
