Default OK - Anthoher silly question from Garet Jax....

Using a starter box, should you be starting the flywheel or the gear in the centre diff?

I ask because I think the opening for the flywheel seems to be too small and the flywheel is too recessed to be touched by the rubber wheel in the starter box.

The gear in the centre diff is far more available to be engaged with the starter box.

Sorry for asking this, but it is my first time for everything RC related.

Thanks.

You need either a bigger flywheel or different engine mount.
