I've been using a cheap Rhino 4s 2700 on my Sullivan starter for about 5 years. It started puffing about 3 years ago. Performance doesn't seem to be affected. I'll keep using it until the IR goes so high it won't turn over my engines.
Slamming the starter into the nose cone is never necessary. It's a great way to scratch up a spinner, crack a firewall, or damage the con rod in your engine though (if that's your thing). All that's required is to roll the engine backward until it hits compression and start it.Unless the engine is flooded, the starter shouldn't have any trouble turning it over.
