you do realize that they "rob" like 1% of the engines power right...

1% = insignificant.

its not that im lazy, ts just stupid to lug around a 25lb starter box that costs like 200$. you can get 10 pullstarts for that price, and my pullstarts last 6 months.

I dont race, im not hardcore intense racer like most of you guys, I dont eat sleep breathe rc cars, my world doesnt revolve around them, i have better things to do. I do them for fun. bash around once in a while. I had a starter box before and you know what i did with it? i smashed it, engine in it was garbage, wheel barely touhed my flywhel, maybe i bought a cheap one, but it ended up in pieces in the parking lot, left to rot, battery and all. maybe I have more money than brain?

yes im going to be walkin to get it, but you guys gotta either walk with your starter box to it, or walk and get your car and bring it back to the box. not me, all i gotta take with me is the remote and glow plug. 2 pulls and im back ripping.

im not gonna argue, I dont like starter boxes, youre not gonna change my mind, call me "dumb" as much as you want. like I said, my life doesnt revolve around rc cars. i have a extra few hundred bucks and wanna throw a new engine in my car. even if it means getting an engine that doesnt bump start.

youre right, I go for a long walk.

you guys go for a long walk, with a 25 lb starter box, or leave the box behind, get your car, bring it back to the starter box. end up walking twice the distance just to hav to tart your car up again.

like I said, im not all hardcore like you guys where I lose sleep if my engine is only operating at 99.5% performance.

I like grabbing my car, remote, and gas and going and driving, so unless you guys have 4 hands, or carry a backpack.
