Default Ofna Starter...

A friend of mine recently picked up an Ultra Comp 2. So far, we've melted the pull start handle off twice. Now we're looking into alternate ways to start the motor. Short of lower mounts and a starter box, is there a cheaper way? I was thinking about the roto start system that comes with other models of the Ofna Buggies. Are they worth it, or should he just go with a starter box?

i'd recommend the starter box. a good quality starter box will turn over even those stubborn motors that are tight. where are you racing btw.......b&t by chance? check out what everybody else uses on race night.
