go for a 12v gel cell over the batterys. yes it's heavy, but i get 5 weeks of racing on one charge. and it's cheaper that 2 stick packs.

oh! i lost a hand in a airplane prop, so i got all of you beat!!!!

yea i hate pull starts i had bisters and a chuck of skin ripp off hurt for a week and it espially sucks when u run nitro and i gets on your skin ahaahah.
thats why i got a starter box and the problem is if your engine isnt tune right and your using a pull start good luck getting to start cause the tune has to be good with a pull start thats why stater boxes are good

Instead of grabbing the wing with left hand and pulling with my right outwards I was sitting down on the ground and decided to grab the pullstart with my left and went straight up without thinking of bracing the buggy. Holy crap I havent felt pain like that in a long time. I left a good chunk of flesh on the cooling head along with blood spraying everywhere. My freaking knuckles are all jacked up. As I looked down at the metal fins there was skin stuck to it on multiple levels of the cooling head.

Just wanted to share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Photo's would be good...
