I don't go for long walks when my engine flames out, I let the marshal bring it back to my pit guy so he can start it again.

I can tell you right now that the bump start 528 has approx 2% more HP than the roto start.

That can happen.. but not every time.. you should not let your engines run out of fuel while your running, as it can cause your glow plugs to fail, or just degrade the glow.

Id say you would be happy bashing with it. I liked the power but it was to much and to hard on fuel for the track

yeah anytime ur engine runs TO lean it can damage your plug.. it's ok to let it run out of fuel at idle to put ur car away, but never on power. unless u like spending money on glow plugs. lol

You want a pull start and not to walk i would suggest you wrong hobby my friend, i think what you is a go kart, that you can seat and the pull start just behind your seat

You will like the 528.
