how far are you pulling your recoil out? The very maximum should be 12 inches.

I believe the HPI Roto-Start will fit your SS.

I don't think you need to replace your carb, just alittle tuning should get it running properly.

How much throttle are you giving it? Do you notice alot of smoke coming out of your pipe? Does your engine "gurgle" when you give it low to mid throttle? If any of the those were some symptoms, sounds like your low speed or high speed (don't know yet) is too rich. Just lean it in 1/8 of a turn at a time.
