Default hard to start 8ight T rtr 2.0

I have run 3.5 tanks through my new Losi 8ight T 2.0 rtr. Today when I try to start it, the flywheel keeps getting stuck/locking up. I tried to heat the motor and its a little better, but its still sticking? This is my first truck to use on a box and a new motor to break in. Any help is appreciated.

It's a new engine, it's got tight compression, it will do that. Just make sure to heat the engine up to about 200 before starting.
