Turtle Racing V2 Billet Pull Start has landed

Turtle Racing V2 Billet Part Start Assembly Now Shipping


Well I am not sure this one should be called a “V2” at all. Turtle Racing took a much needed and used product that he was already selling and put an entire new twist on it. They pulled out all the stops to make what is clearly the best and strongest pull start assembly on the planet. The pull starter fits all your common 23cc, 26cc, 29cc, 30.5cc engines from Zenoah and CY engines. Remove the crappy plastic unit and put in this beefy  billet option in your HPI Baja, Losi 5IVE-T, FG, MCD or whatever.

They have teamed up with one of the biggest innovators in large scale, TeamChase to get several of the parts produced at the level of quality and strength Turtle demanded. We like this team effort not only because it produced an amazing part but it fixed a major issue with thousands upon thousands of users. It also shows you the strength of community and industry support that the 1/5 scene still has and I am proud to be involved in this thing called Large Scale. Read below to see all the great improvements of this new pull starter.


Part Number: TURV026

Press Release:

Completely New design, using a “dog” drive system. No more “pawl/screw” design.

Handle exit direction rotatable every 22.5 degree-You can point the handle in the direction you want so it will fit your application and your needs. Three Finger Handle & “Cushion” start to help start big compression motors. This new design greatly reduces the “feel” of compression.

Handle designed by Team Chase. TR has replaced the rope with a very tough cable. Several cable designs were tested, finally coming up with the best option. This cable is 36” long, longer than your stock rope or any cable on the market.

TR had to have a special recoil spring made because of the long cable. The V2 is fully rebuildable, all internals are available. Everything inside can be replaced so this will be the last pull start you will need. Aluminum Spool with double Team FastEddy ball bearings. One of the big problems we’ve encountered with V1 and stock pull starts is the plastic spool breaking.

If you try to put one extra preload turn on the recoil spring it will break the plastic spool. We put a longer, wider, stronger recoil spring on V2 so an Aluminum spool had to be made to handle the extra stress. The spool has a channel so the cable routes through it in the direction of wind, no more 90 degree bend at the spool, nice smooth transition, no binding.

All Springs custom made in USA. Recoil spring-wider & stronger. TR had the ends of the recoil spring doubled layered to reduce breaking and un-bending.

Fits all 1/4,1/5,1/6 scale, CY/Zen, HPI Baja (all), Losi, MCD,FG, RedCat, boats/planes.

  • Made in USA with quality and pride.
  • 6061 Billet Aluminum CNC machined in house by Turtle Racing.
