Default Which roto start for OS .18tz?

Putting an OS .18tz in my Revo and don't want the ez start setup. I got the RD bump box and flywheel, but it's for my kid mostly, so I want the ease of a roto start, but can't find a backplate specifically listed for this motor. Any body help me out? Thanks in advance!

I used these:

O.S. Rear Adapter .18 TM

DuraTrax Super Start Back Plate Savage .21-.25

HPI One-Way Bearing For Pull Start .21 BB

I had the OS 18 TZ-TX, the one with the pull start on it. If you bought the one without I think you will need to buy a new crank shaft with the starting shaft boss on it

Yeah, I've already got the crank with the boss on it, as well as the OS plate. I didn't know the Savage starter plate fit. I'm also being told the one for the Traxxas 2.5 & 3.3 will fit. Can anyone confirm this? So far I've gotten 3 replies with 3 different answers, lol! Thanks!

Default Dont go Traxxas one way

The oneway wont fit inside the the back of the engine. The OD of the bearing hits the inner part of the rear plate. Go with the HPI setup.

if youve already got the os back plate you can kill 2 birds by getting the hpi rotostart kit comes with the engine atachment and the actual starter in one box be careful i think there is two kinds one that takes 1 batt pack and one that takes 2 batt packs. good luck
