Default Starter Boxes

I need a starter box for my XXX-NT and my Nitro TC3 but the problem is that the flywheel is sideways on the TC3 and regular on the XXX-NT. Will this box work with my NT and if so couls I use it for my TC3 by just turning it sideways??

Set it up so the wheel runs inline with your box (length ways).
This will work for your truck, then do as some other guys are doing with their NTC3, turn the car sideways on the starter box and fire it that way. It isn't pretty, and it doesn't sit really well, but it does fire the engine...

I did it just the opposite... I have my Ofna starter box setup to start the NTC3 length wise. To start my Kyosho I have to turn it sideways across it. It's actually easier to do it this way because I have a mod motor in the NTC3. And a stock Kyosho motor in the truck.

Default OFNA Box and NTC3

I modified my OFNA starter box to suit my NTC3 better.
I have attached some pictures, and will explian the mods after.






I basically flipped the wheel and motors around so the wheel is sideways, but closer the the front of the box. This required cutting a new opening for the hole (not too bad with a dremel and cutting wheel).
I also moved the wheel over to the left side of the holder (there is already a hole there, just undo the 2 screws, slide it over and re-screw).
With the motors and wheel in this position, the wheel would interfere with the power switch, so I relocated the switch to the front, below the panel.
The car sits pretty well square on the box, except it is to the right a little to allow the fly wheel to hit dead top centere on the starter wheel.
After I mock fitted everything to ensure it would fit, I sanded, primed, painted and enameled the box blue instead of the faded pink.

I just tried it for the first time today, by turning over a brand new Nova RS12T ... no problems! Fired first try and every try after that.

Requires a little work, but works perfect for my NTC3!

Great idea except my box has the single motor inside and its direct drive.
