Dam Roto-Start

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Well I was out bashing, had the roto start in my flap pocket on my pants.

It fell out when i was running the flip the truck, guess what? When i hit the button it shakes mad.

And it seems there isnt as much torque as there was before, any suggestions? other than buying a new roto start (kinda REALLY short on cash)

pinion gear loose

the pinion gear on the electric motor is loose. Take it apart and tighten the grub screw on the pinion gear. Stop using it or you will cause damage to the housing.

I have a motor for one you can have... HPI send me a new button when i called them and told them it didnt work, they send me the motor wiring and button... you would have to use your botton though, the pinion is still atached

you can buy a gear set for it, if the gears are craped
You can drive a fast truck slow, but you can't drive a slow truck fast!
