lol..... using a pull start makes you look like a wanker at the best of times! We have all been there and it is not the best look..... bent over with your hand going backwards and forwards really quick. Now you have to have both hands going backwards and forwards mmmmm

Your pull start won't break if you stop pulling the cord out

Sokar, Its kids like you who are going to innovate the hobby. Don't listen to the old geasers KEEP TINKERING!!!!!! That was a simple and good idea. Usually the best solution is the simplest idea. Try 2 metal rings on the end like 2 old key chain hoops.

Like I said in the video, I'm very careful with my pull starts. I don't do that.

I still remember one time at a club race I saw some "backwoods" looking fellows that had a wheel rigged to a plane starter and were using it to fire up there 1/8 scales with it. It worked, just a little ghetto, or backwoods engineering!
