Default Ez-start, pull start or rotor start for Picco.26?

Hey guys I am about to install the darkside into my revo. Thats the Picco .26 maxx. I just wanted to know whats the best way to start the engine. I know the ez-start barely has enough power to turn the 3.3 and pullstarts tend to bust your nuts while break in process. NO experience with the roto start.

i have the roto start. worked great until my new engine. too much compression and broke 4 OWB's. it's good when the engine is already broken in and has been for a little bit. for the first couple of starts, i wouldn't recommend it. too much torque. i would try the EZ start until it's broken in.

K well thanx alot. I have also purchased the boca owb kit for the engine so i dont have to worry about a leaky owb to start off with. gona put them in then seal the engine and carb real good and drop in. I bought the traxxas big block kit to install it. Anything else I should know?

I too agree with this. Use the ez-start for breakin because it should(not bearing any complcations) help to start it for break-in...

I used the pull-start, had no problem. Yanking the cord wasn't hard at all, felt like a small-block....maybe because it is,lol.

Cheezy start just sucks. Pull start is great 'til your engine has a fussy day (e.g. bad fuel, bad glow plug ) and will cause you to hurl your truck into a tree. Roto Start is great. It even has the power to crank through a hydro-lock if you want to. Not a good idea, but you can.
