    pull-start eliminator

    I saw the pull-start eliminator on the new era web site. Has anyone got one of these? Am I right to assume it is to be used with a cordless drill to start your engine? I'd really like to get rid of the easy start to put in the bigger fuel tank but don't want to lose the ease of starting. Anyone........anyone......Bueller......anyone?

    I have seen people take a pull start off and connect the one way bearing to a drill bit so they can use a cordless drill to start there rc.

    i use to use a Yank Eliminator with my OS .12 CV-X, it was easy to start it but carring that big drill around was a pain... just get a pull start, much less weight and less to carry.

    nope, all u need to tdo is remove ur pull start or ez-start and take off the one-way bearing. u just use the back plate and shaft that is on the engine. the yank eliminator goes on the shaft on the engine. But if ur running with a starter box then u will need a engine back plate and shaft. I know Tazz will say something like its not good to use a yank eliminator cuz it allows dirt into the engine after a while. also it ruins the bearings in ur backplate..

    That was going to be my next question as to how sealed the engine would be. Think I'll just stick with easy start till my ro .15 diesand just keep refueling, it is not really that big of a hassle. I was mostly interested cuz I saw that the new monster GT is going to have a dual starting system that will be pull-start as well as having the pull-start eliminator shaft to plug in your cordless drill so if one breaks you have a back-up unlike ALL engines now. Maybe the after-market guys will catch on and make something for all engine types(or at least the popular ones) in the near future. I think it's a great idea, what about you?

    No PD, a YANK ELIMINATOR, its made by Duratrax i think. u take off the ez-start or pull start and u use the YANK ELIMINATOR to turn the engine over using a drill.....

    The bad thing about yank eliminators (which are made by HG) is that if you tilt it at an angle when it's on the engine, you will need to buy a new one, because the bearing will break.
    The main problem is that it doesn't work with the Nitro Rustler. The yank eliminator needs a clear path to the starter shaft, which is usually blocked by the header or coupler for your exhaust.

    You're thinking of the Racers Edge power starter:

    And again, because of it's size, it will not work with the Nitro Rustler and it's stock exhaust.

    The EZ Start eliminates yanking too. Ahh to live a yank free existance with the STOCK parts... Wouldnt it be grand? Push button ease, no drills, no special backplates. No yanking. Just push, and go!

    I refuse to be held responsible for anyone taking the preceeding out of context.

    But only if that was true... With the orginal ez-start system, you must yank the control box end of the ez-start off, unless you want to drive the truck around with a plastic box and 7.2v battery dragging behind it (which I have done). So you see, the ez-start isn't 100% yank-less.
