I’m going to agree with you on both counts. Even though our starter is not on-board, the electric starter and my electric kart lift are definitely the best investments we have made. We don’t lift the karts a single time, the lift even gets them on and off the trailer! The starter makes life so much easier that I don’t dread all the work. Dad stalled at the start of the last race and was able to jump out and restart the kart in a few seconds with the kart on the ground. Saved his race. Really, the drill works just as well for us as the Hagar would because we are not allowed to restart the kart on track anyway.
