Those are starter boxes. They are an alternate to a pullstarter or ez-start, and are preferred by racers because you can knock some weight off your car, and the starting assembly doesn't drag on your crankshaft(10% power loss w/ pull or ez start, i'm not sure).

They are starter boxes and are used to start your nitro vehicle. When you use one you can get rid of your ez-start or pull start, which drops the weight of your car or truck.

They are starter boxes and they start the engine instead of using an EZ Start, pull start, or one of those ghetto drill starts.

how they work is... there is a spinning part that you press against the flywheel and it cranks the engine over. you still need a glow ignitor to the the plug hot though.
