The motor in these is blooming ginormous - it's the size of a can of coke! More than enough power for even the toughest/tightest engine I can throw at it. Make sure to spend some time adjusting it and/or your car to allow a nice firm contact patch on the flywheel. On one of my cars I have filed out the flywheel slot to allow a larger hole for the wheel to fit through - works flawlessly!

The 'manual' is utterly useless in terms of wiring, the diagram they provide bears no resemblance whatsoever to the back of the control panel. I've fed this back to CML when I called them for advice. Might be useful for retailers to put a pdf on their websites showing you what you actually have to do. But otherwise it's good quality!

Looking at buying the FAST555 starter box. Does it come with everything I need in it? As the site seems to be suggesting I need a 240v charger and a 12v battery? Doesn't it have a battery already - and plug in charger for that matter? thanks
Asked by Simon on 12th September 2017

No, this is the box only. You require your choice of battery and charger. We'd run it from a 12v gel cell, as per the combo pack listed.

Does this starter box have enough power to start a brand new hyper .21 ? Ive already gone through 2 pull starts which are useless!!
Asked by Kevin on 28th September 2018

Yes, these are "beefy" - and we regularly use to start new engines.

A little tip - if your engine is new and has lots of compression, try starting it with the glow plug half a turn loose - it will make it much easier.

Hi Ben. It’s me again Allandy. Do you recommend this starter box for a Inferno Neo ST? Does this have a carrying handle for easy transport? Thanks.
Asked by Allandy on 23rd October 2020

Yes this should work well for the Neo.

I don't think they have a strap sorry

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Does this come with the guide posts to position the buggy?
Asked by William Watson on 6th March 2021

Yes they have adjustable blocks to suit the chassis

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

I got this starter box for my MP9 TKI4 but the wheel seems too big to go through the chassis to reach the engine flywheel. Does the flywheel need replaced or are there smaller wheels available? Thanks
Asked by David on 19th November 2021

No you may have to enlarge the hole in the chassis so the start wheels can reach the flywheel.

Answered by: Anthony @ Wheelspin Models

Would this work well with a FTX Zorro Nitro?
Asked by Nicholas on 27th December 2021

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Asked by Harry on 12th August 2022

Answered by: Steve W @ Wheelspin Models

Hi Hope you can help confirm the suggested glow plug fast 47 is for 1-1.5v. What is the total voltage output on the starter box. Does it step down atall or is the outlet the same voltage as whatever battery setup is used. Trying to workout which glow starter to buy. Thanks
Asked by Richard on 20th August 2022

Yes the power pannel on the front of the starter box has an adjustment screw to reduce the voltage for the glow plug

Answered by: Steve @ Wheelspin Models
