Default Losi 8ight 2.0 help

Hi,I just purchased the Losi 8ight 2.0 RTR buggy and I am trying to get it broken in except i can't get it started. The wheel on the starter box is not spinning the freewheel on the buggy, it does not even begin to kick over (i only heard the piston move a couple of times although they were not in succession). I think my batteries are sufficiently charged, so that should not be an issue. I really don't know what troubleshooting methods I need to implement and after working at this all day in the Arizona heat, I am hoping someone here can please provide me a solution. Thanks in advance.

Heat the engine up first with heat guy or hair dryer. I'd do that with the body off to be safe. Make sure the flywheel is rotated back to where it's at the beginning of the stroke. That way when it does touch the starter box wheel, it will have some time to rotate before coming up on the compression stroke. And you can push down slightly on the box first letting the wheel "rev" up before letting it touch the flywheel.
