Default Longest glow starter/ glow clip available?

Not happy with using the remote glow on my SC8 for a number of reasons:

Heard of a few failures of the system
Seems to get more damaged week by week
If you're holding the clip/starter on, the chassis flexes away from the starter box.

I've been using a glow clip on previous cars with a 2v battery with great results, but without cutting a huge hole in the roof of the shell, you need one in the region of 11-12cms.

The longest i've seen via searches is 100mm so a tad short.
Is anyone aware of any that are longer, or know how easy it would be to extend an existing one??
