New pull start on Hyper 7 Black Edition

I just got round to bringing my Hyper 7 back into action. The pull starter stopped working a couple of months back so I have fitted a new one.

I checked the condition of the old start when I removed it as sometimes you can repair them but in this case it had snapped.

Usually pull starters can be a bit of a pain to replace because it either means removing a lot of parts to get to it or removing the engine itself. I managed to cheat a bit and just remove the rear diff and wheels.

I had a bit of trouble testing my car after as it didn’t want to start in the cold but the hair dryer trick solved the problem.

I recorded a short video while driving with one hand of the buggy back in action.
