Default "blinged out" gas engine heavy duty starter

Hey guys. Here is what we have been working on for a while.. I usually flip my engines but sometimes you ever wish you had a starter? Got a ZDZ?? This thing is cool.. It is in two versions..

Version one with just a starter.. This thing has a heavy brush motor, 6 to 1 belt reduction, two switches(upright and side switch), and the frame is made of CNC milled carbon fiber, and has alligator clips to attach to a 12 volt battery

Version 2 has our exclusive TDRC 4 cell a123 battery pack and it makes this starter more portable and still light weight to carry around. No need to carry a heavy gell cell field battery. it will start a flooded 50cc engine and fixing to test on an 80cc.. On a 5 cell lipo I think it would start a 100cc!!
Just thought I would share this as I think there gonna be great..PS sorry for the crappy pics. Took them with my smart phone. Plane to get some better ones..

Now, this is a Fantastic gadget! I do like to flip my engines by hand, but a good portable finger saver is always welcome!

I am not a fan of electric starters...but that one sure looks worth getting! You know the more I look at that starter..it looks like it is off a small ATV or motorcycle. The0-ring is still on the part that attaches to a engine. Just remove the starter gear and add cone. Then the rest is easy!!! Thanks, Capt,n

I think that this is a little high on the price side if you go to SDS hobbies you can get the same starter for $40!!!!!!!! plus postage.

How about a Bendix type starter, if you can afford the extra weight?
