Default Rc10gt pull start broke

Ok my step dad has an rc10gt and the pull start cord on the original engine ripped. Where can I find an electric starter for him?

Make sure your not hydro licking the engine. A pull start works fine as long as the one way bearing stays in good shape

You probably need to get it tuned. It should fire up on just a few pulls. Try a hotter plug
