CAn anyone tell me how the yank eliminator gets to the starter shaft around the exaust pipe, HG just shows the HPI car which has the high header
my friend has a stock nitro rustler, and his motor for the ez-start went bad, and i thought of the yank eliminator, and i figured that we could use a drill with a socket. We found the right socket and it worked, but if your muffiler is all metal, it won't work, but if you have the rubber, part between the manifold, and the extuall pipe, then you can bend that up out of the way!
That's kinda what i thought. With the metal one the header comes down and covers the rear of the shaft, so to acess the shaft you'd need to have a different header. Anyone else who has a 4-tec pro might be able to tell me. I use a starter box with my mugen engine, I'm just curious.
NO! I tried to bend my header with a screw driver and pliers, and it kinks up the pipe. Get the $15 RS4 RTR header that goes up and over it. Also, if you just bend it, your radio platform will be in the way, but the HPI header will direct the pipe down. You always want the header and the pipe aligned as as straight as possible or your asking for a couple tear!
