    oooooooh nooo.....dont get that roto start man!!! itll kill engines. when the engine hydrolocks, you feel it using a pull start. using roto-start, itll just snap the con rod. not a good choice.

    not nessacerly will it break the crnk, if it would why would companys put them on engines if it could break them? Doesen't the roto come on .21? If so the backplate won't be the same size ad the m16 which is in the small block range while a .21 is in large block range.

    well im pretty sure it won't break the crank and people should know that if the engine doesen't start within a few mins hat something is wrong and take alook in other places. Also so far traxxas,HPI,kyosho, and ofna have these electric starting and im sure if it would break the crank at least 1 of them would stop useing it.
