you will have to use a starter box... that gets the fuel into the engine and starts it... so thats a good idea too if you have a non pull start engine... cuz then thats the ONLY way to can start it... unless u have REALLY fast fingers to turn the flywheel

That way should work fine zoombie. You could also blow through the pressure line, which is a faster technique, but probably too gross for most. (or too much of a hassle). As soon as you can spring for one, I would suggest a starter box. Even my dad who has no idea how somehting like this works could tell some person asking him that a starter box is 10 times better than a pull start. Pull starts suck, big time.

does a starter box help in starting a low compression engine ??

BTW: does anyone knows what the optimal or recommended setting for the Kyosho GS11R ?
