Ummmm what is the problem your having? I use the one for universal starter box for truggy and buggy and I believe they have the same motors, its just adjustable for the 2. I also use a lipo battery and I have no problems with it.

I had a terrible time with mine at first, you had to push down on the motor so damn hard to get the flywheel to make enough contact with the starter wheel.

If that's your problem here's how to fix it. The entire motor/starter wheel assembly is mounted on a plate, that plate is attached to the bottom of the starter box by 6 screws that you can remove from the underside of the starter box. Take the screws out and put a washer in between the starter box and the plate where each screw goes and then put the screws back in. It effectively just raises the starter wheel a bit. My starter box works great after that.

Also... if its your first time with a bump box, make sure your have it set right for the buggy. What you have now was my first package, i was burning up wheels and belts left and right. problem was, my pegs were just slightly off, still started the buggy but i also realized i was grinding my wheel and shredding my belt at the same time. Spent about an hour to two hours readjusting it and she works perfect now, for the last six month anyway. So double check your buggy position, this is my .02.
