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.
The second 4 parts of the series include the main chassis, the front chassis, the front lower wish bones and the first Tyre.
Strangely they have also sent Vettel’s head which I can only assume they have included as an option if you do not like Mark Webber. As far as I know British and Australian subscribers get a Mark Webber edition where as Germany are further into a Vettel themed model.
You can see the First wheel and tyre glued together in the Photo along with a battery to give an idea of scale.
