Got one nice day this week to install remote start. Went in fine and tested in truck. OMG!!! Works awesome. Starts really fast and easy. Plenty of clearance for the new upper frame and new body mockup. All I see that I need is a silicone exhaust deflector.

Well today just for giggles I tried the ESC start switch on a Traxxas radio and to my amazement it actually worked. I couldn't believe my eyes. It worked perfect as described and shown. So I tried it on my Hitec radios and again it worked fine. No problems. I was stunned as to why it started working a month later after trying everything I could think of to get it to work. I was stumped as to why it works now. I didn't do anything different when I hooked it all up before. Oh well I now have a backup. The system works well now. I would recommend buying it and will get another one soon.

went to try the ESc switch on starter motor. It stuck on start and couldn't start motor and fried. Now it's junk. Back to my original unit that works. If anyone buys this starter, I suggest throwing away the ESc electronic switch and make a manual unit like I did. The switch doesn't have a voltage cutoff.

After over a month of complaining. The seller offers up a replacement part, but I have to pay for it. I can only order one. NO way will I pay for a defective product or buy another one. It's a cheap electronic that will fail. It has no voltage or amp cutoff. It will just fry like mine did. MY manual switch is working way better than the original esc switch. It can't fry.

Other people who have bought this remote starter are starting to complain like I did. Same problems and burring out the switch. New product no warranty or service.

Weather is starting to get better. Soon I will start my tribute usa-1 truck body. I have all the material now. just waiting for the weather to cooperate. The remote start is working fine with my upgrade.
