Default Start box motor replacement?

where can I find a large enough motor (775) for my AE starter box in case I either want to upgrade or replace mine?

Search internet....at 1 point, I did think about the same thing to replace my NTC3 starter box motor (775)....unfortunately....bad news for you, the cheapest I can find are still around $35 plus $7 shipping.....(again, you will find that out by search the motor on the net)...
And you can also call AE and order one from them, again, around $45 shipped...

Now, the question is....on ebay, you can find a new NTC3 starter box around $55-60.....or buy one from LHS around $70....with around $25 more (then just a motor) you have a brand new box.

I think the best deal is....sell your existing box when you know the motor is "almost there"..........the buy you a new box. Or, pay the high price of the motor...

If someone does find a place that sells 775 motor cheaper then $30....please post here.

775 are widely used on RC Boat......thru thundertiger....

yea I got my starter box on ebay for 45 shipped.. so 30 on a motor seams like a lot.. but I wouldn't mind paying that just to have a better motor, maybe one that is a little more efficient. thanks for the advice!!
