No worries though, i ran 4 tanks through the enginie and it starts up alot easier now. Big difference.

the LHS that told you that you need a new motor obviously isn't very astute.... You need to get a larger diameter flywheel ! the RTR flywheel is likely too small of a diameter... A Force 28 can easily be bumpstarted in a DM-1 !

True that. A $300 engine or a $20 flywheel.

Yeah...I bought that bump box back in December and it has been great for all my nitro vehicles. Because of small wheel it has more torque too. I love it

I havent seen the kyosho box. I might just buy the Ofna box. I hope it works without having to change my flywheel. Its advertised for the DM1.
I figured the guys at the hobby shops i went to must not have known what they were talking about or were just trying to get me to buy a new motor. I thought maybe changing the flywheel or getting a box that has the wheel pushed up higher above the platform would work.
Anyhow, thanks for the help guys!

Both flywheels that I use are 34 mm in diameter. The engine mounts are about 14 mm high in my DM1 Spec (STS .28 engine) and Kyosho (Force .28 engine) cars.
I am using the Ofna Chrome Top starter box with a 12v. gel cell battery.
Hope this info helps you get setup.
