Exclamation HELP! Savage 4.6 Electrics? +Rotostarts?


i got a savage 4.6 a while ago and it was fine but within the last few days its developed a few problems. It will go around for about 5 mins and then the electrics will just fail and the can will just idle. When very close to the car the servos shudder. After checking the electrics i restart and it goes into full revs straight away and electrics fail immediately.

Any ideas what could be happening. Ive only had it since last Monday.

No modifications
Some tuning (still rich)

The only thing i can think it being is that the cables have been damaged when it put the electric cover on as some were trapped very tightly between the tray and cover.

Rotostart 1

Ok it came with a rotostart 2 but i used the rotostart 1 because its easier to use. As soon as the engine locked the gears went in it. What should i do? Take it apart? buy a new one? or where can i get replacement gears?

ty to anyone who can help!
