Default How Much Flesh Have You Lost From A Pullstart

So I took Jaz's advice on removing the roto start back plate on my sons hyper 7 and installed a pull start. What a world of diffrence this made. It was actually easier to start and now will start on the first pull in most cases.

I was outside messing around with his buggy and got lazy. 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That sucks!
I haven''t lost any flesh yet, but mainly dueto the engine being cool from it being around freezing most of the time.

Not really. He said to go with the bump box from the beginning. I want the blue truggy box but I have a hard time dropping $140.00 for the box and batteries when the buggy cost $269.00. Looks like I am just going to have to pony up the bread.
