Questions?? Pullstart engine in a Mugen MBX5T Truggy?

Does anyone know if I'll be able to use a .28 pullstart engine in the Mugen MBX5T Prospect kit? I'd like to make sure before I buy the kit that a pullstart engine is a direct fit without making any modiforcations. Thanks for any help

Im not sure about a mugen but in my losi 8, I had to get a different motor mount because of the pullstarts back plate would not fit on the kits motor mount. But in my past experiences with pull starts they are a pain if you spend that much on a kit its worth getting a engine that requires a bump box.
That is my 2 cents and personal preference hope it helps some

X2 Pull starts Suck.....get over it and go with a starter box...it'll be easier in the long run.

you will have to find a different mount. stock mount is set up for bump start. i would suggest a bump start setup though. much easier to deal w/!!!
