JL Red Dot is only $179.95 and it is one of the fastest out there!

The JL comes with a pullstart or rotostart ?

I think the OS .18TZ is one of the best choices

Not at all, Kamikaze. I was laughing at myself because I could not think of a better way to say it.

Roelof:

Why does it need to have a rotostart or pullstart?

He is talking about a HPI RS4 so for more than 90% chance he is not using a starterbox and getting a starterbox with the engine will go way over his budget.
