I think i've heard stories about these motors, and if I remember right, they're a pig to start until you put some heat into them. Hopefully Chewy will chime in here - he's the guy I got the info from last time for a friends T-Maxx.

Any tips for firing up brand new motor?
If it evere gives you any more problems DAN over at Average Joe's R/C in vineland will be able to help, the guys been through 16 3.3's, ( i think he might know the engine better then the engineers at traxxas do.)

You can also use an adapter from the Tamiya plug on EZ start to a 12v car batt.
Cut the plug off a R\C batt, attach it to an extension cord, with big alligator clips to your 1:1 car batt.
That will give you the grunt you need to keep the motor turning fast.
Make sure your glo plug is top notch.
