Improve your engine starting hot or cold SlickStart™ unleashes a firestorm of ignition energy to get your engine started and get you off the ground. SlickSTART is so effective, even sub-optimal fuel mixtures and seriously fouled plugs won’t stop the capacitive discharge output from providing the ignition boost your engine needs for reliable starts every time.
Plus, it’s inexpensive and easy to install. Just add SlickSTARTto your impulse coupled magnetos or replace your antiquated starting
The FAA-PMA approved SlickSTART™ magneto booster system integrates solid-state electronics with conventional ignition hardware to deliver optimum spark energy for improved engine starting under all operating conditions. SlickSTART™ delivers over 400% more spark energy during start than conventional impulse coupled or retard breaker systems. This added energy enables the magnetos to fire partially fouled spark plugs, ignite less than optimum fuel mixtures, improve hot engine restarts, and improve starting performance during extremely cold weather operations.SlickSTART™ is designed to replace all TCM/Bendix starting vibrators used in conjunction with Slick Aircraft Products magnetos. SlickSTART™ is also approved for use with Slick impulse coupled magnetos to enhance engine starting performance.
SlickSTART™ is not approved for installation on any airframe equipped with TCM/Bendix D-2000*, or D-3000* series impulse coupled or retard breaker magnetos.
SlickSTART™ SS1001 is approved for use with Slick impulse coupled magnetos and retard breaker mags to enhance engine starting performance.

Pa 32 260 with o540. Starting about an hr or so after shutdown (not cold, not hot) were generally the worst. Rebuilt mags, changed plugs, would clean and gap plugs every 25hrs just to stay on top of it. Installed slick start, BOOM. Theres a you tube video out there showing how to test it by connecting the battery directly, itâ€™s nuts how intense the spark is.
Amazing! This should be standard equipment on all Lycoming engines. Hot start or cold -- engine now fires right up EVERY TIME where as previously it would easily flood if it didnt fire on the first try or 50/50 at best on a cold morning.
Only got 611 hours on my first one !
