This is the optional Sullivan TigerDrive 8mm adapter for nitro engines. The unit replaces the pull-starter or on board starter found on many R/C Cars, trucks, boats and helicopters, and allows for use of a standard hand-held starter. This eliminates broken ropes and burned out on board starters and allows the engine to be turned faster for easier starting. The drive direction can be oriented in four directions to accommodate exhaust and chassis arrangement.

Sullivan offers TigerDirect models to fit most engines from .12 to .46, and installation is very easy -- only three or four screws. The gears are steel, the frame is aluminum and the bearings are bronze and Steel Roller for durability.

This unit will work on most 8mm shaft engines including, but not limited to: O.S. Max .12 to .21 side exhaust engines, Duratrax .18 and Kyosho GX21 .21.
