Default Nitro Rustler EZ start stopped working.Electric Engine spins but piston doesnt move??

My EZ start stopped working. The electric engine spins but the piston doesnt move. I can turn the wheel to make the piston go up and down so its not locked up. Any help?

Sounds like your one-way bearing has died. Should be an easy fix.

Wow really. This rustler has been problems ever since I got it. I havent even got to break in the engine yet. The first problem was a pin on the break and spur gear shaft wasnt in, letting the shaft slide out of the trans gear.

If your roto-start spins freely but the engine doesn't then it's your one-way bearing, it's not grabbing the crankshaft as it should. Take it apart, you can easily test the bearing.
