hyper 8 port READ THIS!!!!!

ok fellas do not use your drill to start your truck as I did..at first it works well but it broke the turbine inside the engine and chipped I nice chunk off the piston..so needless to say I have totally destroyed this engine..now I have to shell out another 150 bucks for a new 1..and beleive me from what little driving I got to do with it, it will be worth buying a new one

Not doubting you totally here but are you sure it was the drill start that broke your 8 port and not some sort of manufacturer defect? I mean even the tiniest defect can make a product break. When you consider what the drill start is it's only a remote electric starter rather than something that the engine was never designed to use.

I still plan on buying a drill start, though I may come up with a modification to help prevent it from breaking the engine but I if memory serves the drill start came with a short flexible extension that should have taken the shock from the drill to the engine. I'll keep you guys posted.

what actually broke was the turbine inside that holds the 1 way bearing..it was having a hard time starting so I raised the clutch number on the drill and it was to much torque im guessing

There is a pin in the turbo fan inside the Hyper that fits in the end of the crankshaft. it sounds like you had hydro locked it and that's how and why it broke. To start high compression engines loosen the glow plug 1/2 turn start the engine, then when it's running tighten the glow plug. You can get the parts to fix that engine on ebay for about $50 bucks, here is what it should look like.

Welcome Black-wolf to RCNT! Thanks for the link.

I saw that on Savage21, but I believe you still have to cut a hole in the shock tower.

CRSMP5, what til you get an OFNA 8 port (if you do plan on getting one). You could take the plug out and the pull start is hard to pull. This darn 8port is a nightmare getting started up for the first time. After that, its just hard.
