This is the ProTek R/C "SureStart" Professional 1/8 Off-Road Starter Box. Powerful. Affordable. Reliable. The ProTek R/C "SureStart" starter box was developed to provide 1/8 scale off road enthusiasts with a starter box that exceeds expectations. Breaking in a new engine? Tight engines are no match for the "SureStart". With dual 6300 RPM - 750 size motors, the "SureStart" delivers the power needed to turn over the most stubborn engines. T-Style connectors are pre-installed, providing a low resistance connection out of the box. The entire system is wired with high quality 16awg silicone shielded wire and quick change connectors that make maintenance easy.

The battery tray will fit common 7.2V NiMH or 7.4V LiPo packs, providing an easy to use setup that is compatible with batteries you probably already have on hand. With minor modification, the battery tray will easily fit a 4S starter box pack. Another unique feature is the quick access cover release tab that exposes the inside of the starter box without the need for tools. When its time to get inside the box, simply press the tab and lift the lid! Backed by the power of ProTek R/C, the "SureStart" starter box provides nitro enthusiasts with a powerful and affordable solution that wont leave you stuck in a pinch.

Finally i brought this box into business. Mods required are: - 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

I've got to say this is probably the best starter box on the market currently. The dual 775 motors perform just flawlessly and can turn over any motor whether its broken in or not. Another great feature is the push button to open the top door, no more wrenching on your bump box!!! Overall id recommend this box to anyone because of its quality, performance, and great price.

I love this starter box!! I don't know why some say the flywheel is too low, just use washers and shim up the mount... You can manipulate anything to suit your needs... This box has tons of power and I have no complaints thus far. ProTek is great!!

great starter box and I use it for my durango truggy. The only complaint is the wheel is too low. But I love that it came with the Dean plug !

The starter box works great! I did need to make a modification For the Tekno NB48, I had to shim the motor mount 2mm so the starter wheel would hit the fly wheel.

Good starter box for vehicles with very low flywheels, bad for many models (including Tekno NT48 NB48) that need a bit more clearance. I had to heavily modify it (including abandoning the adjustable pieces) to get the wheel to raise enough to hit the the flywheel. Good box, but only for very select vehicles.

Compared to everything else that's available, this is the best starter box!

This has been a great starter box. The flywheel is a little small on our JQ nitro buggy, but I was able to shim up all of the internals in the starter box to bring the wheel up to compensate for the buggy. Very simple to do. I also bought the recommended ProTek 4S Lipo for the box. Trouble free combo!
