Questions?? Engine starting. Pull start or Roto start???? :S

I'm sorry if this may seem a daft question but I'm a little unsure so thought I'd ask

so here goes...

I have a Schumacher Fusion R12 and the engine has a Roto start on it (which I guess it's been on from new)
the question is, could a pull start be added in place of this?

Just I've heard various stories about both pull & roto starts but thought someone on here might know the answer


Thanks in advance guys

Which do you think might be better. Sticking a hex drive in an electric drill and pressing the trigger. Or developing a great bicep yanking on a pull start. No contest really is there. If I were you I'd dump both options and get a half decent starter box.

if your racing go with a starter box, otherwise pull start is the best option for bashing, less shit to carry around
