People dont recommend stater boxes for no reason..let me tell you my experiences with roto starts...maybe you can learn from my mistakes and save yourself the hundreds of dollars:

For 2 years I used nothing but roto-starts with my Hyper engines..I tried them all, and they all did the same thing...the roto start back plate would break after about a gallon of fuel, or the one way bearing, or the shaft would strip after about 1 gallon of fuel. So every gallon I would have to buy something new, ranging in price from $25-$60..every gallon! after 3 gallons I could have had enough money for the best starter box on the market, plus battery and charger..not to mention the fact that once you change out the backplate on your engine to bump start. the engine has more power and RPM's..so you get cheaper, faster, less hassle, less maintenance and less pain in the AZZ!

you may not want to hear it, but until you switch to a box you will just continue to be annoyed, frustrated and broke!
