Me and my friend just got 2 new rs4 3's . we started them up for them first time easy and broke in the engines acording to hpi specs. 3rd tank of gas the Pull started spring snapped ...... We took it apart and inspected it and in fact the spring broke in half ..... i was wondering of ther are alternate ways to start it up ?

Bluelock - pull starts are not like lawn mowers! You use short jerks and not pull it all the way out. Buy a starter box and you will not regret it later on when the engine does not want to start with a pull starter.
