    .18 Tiger Drive -- WORKS

    Hey guys


    I just installed a tiger drive about a week ago and man i love it. Its like the roto start only in some ways better. First off its way cheaper (only 15 bucks) and second off you can use any electric drill with a clutch on it.

    WORKS GREAT!!

    Reall knuckle saver.

    Any questions on it i'll be happy to answer.

    i bought the hpi rotostart backplate at my lhs for $16 (no shipping). But i am glad it worked for you, its better than the pull start that came on the tornado xp. The pullstart or the volcano i got is working great. The two vehicles are like nite and day, the truck just seems to be much better, even down to the radio.

    Oh, but didnt you have to buy a Roto Start as well? Whats the cost of those? For people that already have a roto START(not backplate) then yea..get a back plate its the way to go. But for as far as cost, most people, if im not mistaken, have a drill already on em and 15 to 20 bucks later they got a Tiger Drive. Im not putting down the roto start, used my friends for a while till i got my tiger drive and man did i love it. But i decided for a tiger drive.

    Either Way they both have positive and negative outlooks.

    But yeah it works for me.

    Why cant you use a drill on the hpi rotostart?? BTW i have an hpi rs4 3 evo so it did pay for me to get it but a cordless drill will work fine on the hpi too. I just think that hpi is a better product and better company, most people in this hobby have a 7.2 volt battery and charger and you can charge these usually off a car battery or cigarette lighter so i think it makes more sence to invest in the roto start wand too, its like $20. What if your drill goes dead and your out somewhere without ac power, how do you carge the drill???????

    by the way, i was not criticising you about your purchase, i was just mentioning that i bought the hpi version and it worked too. You can buy this at your local hobby store for $16 and not have to pay shipping. You can also use a drill with it. Thats all, nothing more and nothing less. So lets calm down a little.

    Oh im not mad. i was just saying. There both choice products, and yes HPI is a more well known company, and yes they make awesome products. The original reason i got a tiger drive was because my friend was saying they didnt make roto starts for my size engine. And i didnt look into it so i just went with a tiger drive.
