    broken teeth usually relates to incorrect gear mesh. make sure its not too tight, OR too loose. either one could be the casue of broken teeth.

    The original roto start had a few problem from what you are talking about to the motor shaft breaking, to the push button sticking and locking the roto start in the running position. But you can always look at the new Roto start 2 that supposedly has taken care of all these issues or you could go to another time of hand starter from duratrax, losi, ofna, etc...
