Default Kyosho - GS11R

I have a nitro car that has a Kyosho GS11R engine. I am looking for a starter recoil. Any thoughts on where I can get one from, or can I covert the kit to an electric starter if that is possible? If so, what are the parts that I need to get?

Dude, Google Images is your friend.

Most pullstarts for small block engines will fit, but the determining factor is the one-way clutch bearing shape and size and if the one-way clutch bearing is external to the engine or internal. Most smallblocks have external one-way clutch bearings and are hex shaped, and typically ride on a 6-8mm diameter shaft.

What’s wrong with the original Pullstart? Most can be fixed with a little time and ingenuity.
