    Hey guys, just wondering as to why when i go to start my rc car with the pull starter it jumps off the ground, i have tried priming the engine but placing my finger over the exhaust/ air filer and pulling the pull started but it just seems to want to jump. When i take the glow plug out and place a few drops of fuel into the piston it starts fine.....im just wondering if there are other ways to prime the engine.....

    Thanks

    Sure remove the pressure line from the exhaust and blow a small amount of air into it,replace pull cord should start right up or purchase a fuel line bulb and pump it .[ fuel tank to carb.]
