    the EZ Start(stock) set-up is heavy .... I have been using the Roto-Start on my engines since they came out !

    EZ Start is like AOL. Nice for starting out, but then you start thinking.... it's heavy, plug wire & charging issues, mandatory roll cage, etc.

    Getting the roto-start is the next stage in my Jato's evolution. Next is a CF upper chassis brace and MAYBE eliminating the roll bar. I eventually want to trim the chassis down real slender like. Light, slender & fast.

    i am going to get a starter box, however, i was wondering do i need to upgrade to a larger flywheel for it to work?

    You can just take out the engine spacers for a bump box. Unbolt the engine and you'll find some 3mm spacers, which are removable. Do this and it'll lower your flywheel about 1-2 mm below the chassis. Beware of scraping the pavement, though!!! Bump box setups were made for offroading, not scraping the curb.
