You can however use a single 4S LiPo battery to power the SureStart, BUT some modification is required - you will need to remove the Y-Harness power lead and re-solder a single T-Style connector to the power leads.
Starter Wheel Note: From the factory, the rubber starter wheel may be slightly too low to effectively contact the flywheel; but there is an easy fix! Simply install washers under the motor/belt bulkhead and the starter wheel lifts up for a longer reach.

- Shimming motormount
- Trimming adj. brackets' thickness
- Grinding some inner part of top plate in the area of rubber belt
- Sanding some material from top of pedal mechanism (or whatever it called)
That gave me required 8mm wheel uptravel. So this box is far from "95% ready" state)
Build quality, fit and finish were very well done and put together.
Had to shim the motors/starter wheel assembly for the wheel to hit the flywheel on my Losi buggy but I expected that as it was clearly stated in the product description.
Only thing I would suggest is include the mod to have it accept a lipo pack. I would of paid the extra money!!!
Thanks for an awesome product!!!)
But I love that it came with the Dean plug !)
