Help with pull start! Hard to pull....

I just purchased a used HPI RS4 with a .15 motor. First couple pulls with the pull start resulted in nothing abnormal. Then it fired, next time the chord stuck in the out position. I used the flywheel to get it to retract. Now, its really hard to pull....its jerky, and just didnt feel right. I pulled the glow plug, and it pulls just fine. Checked the pipe for obstructions, and its fine.

You've probably flooded the engine. Does fuel splash up from the glowplug hole when you pull the chord without the glowplug attached?

yeh it sounds like its def flooded since when you take the plug out it is fine. try only priming the engne till fuel enters the carb and then start it up.
