Default How to "Ghetto Start" your nitro.

Lol I was bored so I had a little fun with a broken pull start. Tell me what you think.

Still cant believe OFNA would not offer to replace your pull start for free! That,customer service is what they are known for. At least youy unfder stand(from your statement)that a bent wrist is all your supppse to pull a pull start. Ghetto start is ghetto but good for you one of the few that can figure out how to make somethoing that does not work,,work.But I must say the pencils flopping off the body while driving scares me..

Yea I would tie the pencil to the spoiler or something, one pencil will stay in.

And OFNA would really replace my pull start? Maybe I should give them a call before I jump on a starter box.

No ,a bump box is the correct decision but, asking their cust service cant hurt & having a pull start replaced is good till your able to afford all the crap a bump start requires. When your ready the Mugen or OFNA blue alum truggy box are the 2 that are the shit right now.Mugen box has been around for a very long time & was THE box for those in the know for as long, some say the New OFNA truggy box is the model of a rip off with improvements for the mugen box.Think of the new OFNA box as a cheap Taiwan version(same price)of the Mugen box only bigger but also with bigger motors.

Best advice is if you see your self with a future in RC buy the best at the time & you'll save money in the long run.I got back into RC in the mid 90's & thought cheap is best because I was poor,I learned very quickly You get what you pay for. Higher price does not guarantee the best product but usually means what you buy will be relevant for longer & cost less over its intended life span.

You can look in my post on the other thread for the # or.../

Lol ya I've thought of a lot of stuff like that. I kind of have an engineering mind, which is partly what draws me to RC.
