I have recently tested this item. Started on the first pull after sitting for quite awhile.The cable to the throttle has been "kinked", but it didn't seem to effect the throttle response. Copy and paste into your address bar and give it time to load. Rope Speed at Rated Load. 40' (12 m) per minute. Engine Speed 8,000 rpm.
