I would recommend staying bump start. Pull or roto start doesnt compare to the simplicity and reliability of bump start.

I asked a similar question about 3 weeks ago. I would stay with the bump start as well. I know it can be a pain to carry around the box and everything, but in the long run it is going to save you a lot of heart ache. What is the exact reason you want to change?

if you race - stick with the bump - if you bash them tower should carry the roto start for it.

thats odd! most people go from pull start to bump start after getting frustrated w/ pull start. You must have started off with a starter box and have never seen the horrific blistered hands of a pull start pit man

I think that for racing bump-start is the only way to go, but I can see bashers not wanting or needing one.

I personally HATE one-way bearings and some of the starting problems associated with them, couple that with a pullstart, and you have a recipe for blistered hands and frustration.
