Default Which one is better? Pull start or Starter Box!

I just broke my pull start cord and my mate told me to get a starter box ? So should i get the hobby store to fix it up or... just get a starter box?

The good thing about removing the pull starter is that your engine will have more power and you make the car lighter. However you will have to find a backplate for you engine.

Pull starts are great, till you realize you want more and pullstart options are short, the higher you go. Bump start is best for racing, but i got friends that love their pullstarts. My opinion, if you want to race, or just want more power. Get the bump, they are cheap and reliable. Not as cheap as a pull, but lots more reliable

A starter box will last you for years. You will find it a lot easier to start your cars also.
