Smile Recommend a Flywheel Puller

Can anyone recommend a good flywheel puller to purchase. I need to pick one up now that I am back into Nitro and any opinions would be great.

Thanks

Goto your local auto store and get a 5 buck battery terminal puller. Unless you gotta have the bling. Then go with the EDS model for 20 bucks.

I bought the Kyosho puller at Amain. It was the cheapest they had, and it works great. It is a definite must have for your tool box.

Default Flywheel puller

Save your money and just tap the back edge of your flywheel with the plastic end of a medium screwdriver. I've been doin' this since the 70's and have never damaged anything.

The battery terminal puller I bought works well most of the time. I ended up breaking the tool one time with a particularly tight one. I've heard of a few people that had trouble with the shaft tip "mushrooming" due to the shape of the puller.

15$ is well spent on a flywheel puller.....I used to whack the back side of the flywheel. But ill openly admit the first time i used a Rc specific puller i was hooked....they work just as intended and aren't very big and overall i feel its a worthy tool to have in the box.
