You need a starter wheel to turn the engine over whilst igniting the glow plug.
A starter wheel comes either as a small hand held motor with a rubber wheel attached (usually powered by a 12 volt car battery) or a purpose built starter box. Search ebay for starter box to see what one looks like. Oh yeah, don't forget to put some fuel in it.

I have created a website about 1/8th scale historic rc cars and am adding it to this thread to see if anybody is interested in starting a movement for historic/vintage racing. In Japan it is quite big and it is just starting in the States.

Unfortunately I cannot post my URL yet as I don't have enough posts but if you were to use the words "eighth rc historic model cars" (no gaps) dot com, you wouldn't be a million miles away.

I have done 3 restorations , an Associated RC500 2wd , a Delta Super J , and a Marker Machine ( still own all of them ) and there was no bigger thrill than driving these vehicles on the race track for the first time , knowing it's been years since these cars have seen the pavement .

Default Vintage/Historic

Great stuff. A lot of people would like to have any of those and you have all three, and you have run them , kudos.

For a year or so I had wanted to find out if there was much interest in vintage/historic 1/8th scale cars. (They seem to appear regularly on auction sites and generally generate a lot of interest, which would suggest there is.) To that end a little while ago I launched a website which hopefully would be seen and might kickstart a movement to get these machines back on to the track. I realise not everybody wants to race them, but some do. I am UK based and there is little interest here at the moment, I will persevere. In the US they have just held the first vintage meeting and in Japan they have been racing for some years.
My site is eighthrchistoricmodelcars.com
there is a site in America dedicated to vintage racing called rcretro.com
please check them out.
