I am using a crappy FS4 starter the biggest starter I can find off the self, I had to take the starter out
to and take it in and out few times to get it to start. BTW the ballast runs cool as a brick
after 30 mins of running. I need to find some S16 or FS125 somthing that is two pin that fits in the standard starter blocks.
