If you do find a good power supply (good luck) you will be tied up to the outlet or to the wall instead of being able to carry your starter box at the track or anywhere else for that matter. You want a starter box that can be portable as can be.

800mA = 0.8 A ..... it's not going to cut it.

Why don't you buy 12V gel battery ? or double 7.2V NIMH ?

Sure you could if you have a good 75amp power supply or something but why bother with that?

No little wall wart supply is going to cut it.

hmmmmm choices.......

- 1 power supply 13.8v/40A +/- 170 bucks

or one of these 2 options:

- 2x 3000mAh NiMh or LiPo stickpacks and a charger +/-80 bucks
- 1x lead-acid 12v/7Ah battery and a cheap charger +/- 50 bucks

The last 2 options are more mobile as well......

hears a rough guide for you
lets go back to teh brushed motor times
a 27 turn stock motor running at 5 volts would draw between 5 and 14 amps depending how wel its tuned so your starter box is probly a 750 size motor it will be 12 volt and it will be drawing around 12 - 20 amps depending on how much load is on teh rotor

remember more volts comes with more amps V=ir Volts = amps X resistance

We use a 7Ah 12v gel cell in our starter box and its used for 4 differents cars during a meeting competing in 4 rounds of quali. plus a final each which equates to 20 starts. That's without quite a few starts during practice.
