Just usin it like the airplane starter and it works so much better! I just knew it would work.! Never going back to that box setup. Now I'm just gonna tape over the motors with some duct tape for xtra grippage and probably mount the on/off switch somewhere on there. For now everything works great.

When you start it how do you cut the motors on and then back off.

What are the pros of using that type or the cons of the box starter?

Default finally

finally got that nitro star .12r xs broken in.. now its running consistently at about 225.. plenty of power for me..

first thing I noticed is that the r40 has tons of steering, at least at lower speeds.. I haven't got to really open it up yet..

Are there any good websites that explain what and how to set-up a car for certain conditions?

If your flywheel doesn't sit low enough in the chassis, you need to get shorter engine blocks. Sounds like you have blocks for a pul start engine.

Nope, thats stock. If it sits any lower the flywheel will protude from the chassis. Any of my cars wont work on that 10th box with those mounts so I don't use em. I never did need em, but now I'm concentrating on my new method, which has been proven to be more effective and I'm lovin it! Next step is to use the alligator clips from the 24hr charger to attach to the unit .

NSX- I still have the switch to turn it on/off

I mean on my box you have to push the springs down to get the wheel to start spinning. So you have yours wired that when you press the on off switch it spins and when you flick it agian it turns off.

What body did Hara use for his races in 2004? I know it was a Mazda 6, but who was the manufacturer?

Yep, pretty much . I could modify something so when the terminals press together it turns it on, but I'm tired of seeing heavy sparks flying especially near the fuel. I'll go and start my car today probably to see how she runs.
