    Revo 3.3 roto start back plate?

    I've looked all over the place. Any ideals?

    Duratrax. That's what I've used before going to pull start. Apparently they have been discontinued; if I recall there used to be an Ofna and maybe a Hot Shot one?

    You have to look for the back plate for the Traxxas 2.5 engine. It works on the 3.3

    You could see if it will fit, but given the product descriptions it will not fit the .18TZ (obviously) and the .18TM which was designed with Traxxas starters in mind.
    Others have gone with the Tiger Drive and had success.

    That DuraTrax 6031 will not fit the Traxxas OWB.


    You will need one that looks like this


    The tiger drive will work because you replace the traxxas OWB
