Hello guys;
I have force .32 engine need to install a good roto starter on it, any sugestions would be great. I had a tiger start on it but it did'nt last. The plastic housing on it cracked. So I'd like to get somthing more durable.
Thanks for a rapid response!

Here's an ofna torque start system: http://www.nitrohouse.com/Backplate-Xtm-Picco-Force_p_8685.html.

The hand held unit for the torque start: http://www.nitrohouse.com/Torque-start-Motor-Shaft_p_8682.html

This is ofna's version of the roto start: http://www.nitrohouse.com/Roto-BP-Sh-Xtm-Pic-Force_p_8670.html

Also the hand held unit for the roto start: http://www.nitrohouse.com/Shaft-start-Motor-Shaft_p_8665.html

I've ran both setups on my force .28 and they worked great, but eventually i got tired of fooling with these setups. So, i got a back plate and a starter box and starting is pretty much effortless now.

This is the starter box i have, cheapest one i've seen on ebay and good quality. I got the battery for it from my local Radio Shack (the battery i posted in the link is cheaper) and got the charger off ebay from the same seller of the starter box.

Here's the link for the starter box: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Ofna-On-Off-Road-Starter-Box-10246-NIB-/390621645874?pt=Radio_Control_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5af2dd4c32

Here's a link for the battery: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Hobbico-TorqMaster-LC-12V-7Amp-Battery-HCAP0800-NIB-/290681485491?pt=Radio_Control_Parts_Accessories&hash=item43adf778b3

Here's another link for the charger: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330626191880

All these items are from the same seller, OmniModels and they are a good seller on ebay.

Here's another link to ebay for a back plate for you motor: http://www.ebay.com/itm/OFNA-R-Back-Cover-21-28-32-OFN52090-/360608735839?pt=Radio_Control_Parts_Accessories&hash=item53f5f4a25f

This is another good seller I've bought from.

Note: if you purchase this back cover, you might file down the flat spot on it so the skirt of the piston will clear it. I put one on my force .28 and after break in, i pulled the cover to inspect the rod bearing for play and noticed that the flat spot on the cover had a groove in it. The skirt of the piston was hitting it on the intake stroke. I got lucky i didn't split the piston or break the rod during my break in. So, i filed down the flat spot just enough to where the groove was gone that the piston had made from contacting it.

Thanks for all the help, I'll check out e-bay. One question on the back plate is it nessassary? I'll put it on there if need be, but I'd rather leave the pull start on there, just in case I need it. What do you think...

You don't have to use the back plate, i only did because it cleans things up a little and shaves a little weight.

Leaving the pull start on won't hurt it, as the one way bearing free spins once the motor is running. I still have the new pull start assembly in my parts box that came on my force .28 as a back up just in case something were to happen to my starter box.
