    If you know how to tune: pull start and glow ignitor. If not, then you will either learn real quick or get blisters trying to start the engine. I prefer pull and ignitor.

    I have an OFNA single AA that I put a rechargeable battery in and use my battery charger to charge up (has the glow adapter). I spent $10 on it and don't see any reason to spend much more than that.

    +1 to what Double G said.. If you have your tuning skills down a pull start works great, it also drops weight of you vehicle by about 6 oz's (that's a lot off a 10 lbs r/c!!!!). It will allow more air flow to the cooling head, decrease some of the top heaviness a little. I just carry my glow ignitor (rechargeable with a little battery meter on it from Dynamite).... A couple tugs and I"m off and running...

    But, if your tune is off and you don't have a good grasp of tuning, you will have blisters between those fingers...

    I currently am running the EZ start but will be switching over soon for the cooling and weight loss!

    I had pull start on mine but switched to the ez start. That way I could leave the body on when I started it. I got in the habit of running them without the body when I had the pull starter

    If you cut in an oval pattern around the cooling head you can make enough clearance for the pull start, then add a zip tie to the handle so you can grab the end easy. I nice fat zip tie and cut it to length.

    Pull start and glow ignitor all the way. Switched out that ez start years ago and never looked back.

    And your tune was never dialed in better either...

    I prefer pull start as well.

    Just remember that it's not a lawn mower. Short quick pulls, not full arm-lengths, should be used.
    Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.

    Well, I'm on both sides of the fence with this one. I use a glow igniter
    and an ez starter, one short touch of the button and it will sit there
    idling until I feel its ready. I have the Dynamite plain Jane looking
    igniter that uses a D cell battery.
