    Glow plug igniter

    Any recommendations on a glow plug igniter? Switched the Revo and TMaxx over to the drill type starters.
    The igniter I bought on EBay stinks. Glows a plug real bright with a fresh battery, but after a few seconds it dims.

    Are the metered one worth it?

    I have an Ofna that takes one AA battery. I use a rechargeable battery instead of an alkaline and have a couple spares just in case. Cost around $10.

    What brand starter system are you using, I have a Sullivan roto start tiger drive on the way for my revo, its made to suit the 3.3 & 18tm engine so should fit my O.S 21tm as well hopefully.
