Default Electric start not working

I just installed a electric start to my nitro redcat volcano S30 and it wont turn over, i've changed out the old fuel, checked the glow plug, i also have tryed using my power drill but we stripped the gears. I broke it in almost a month ago and havent used it sences, so would that have any effect on it. i've tryed about everything, im almost so tired of this im about to buy another pull start for it, please help.

the drill broke or the rotostart? yes, being broken would have a major effect on the electric start not working. for the price of a new pull start every month you can get 1 starter box to last for years.

I have the Redcat sv. If you need any parts I can make a good deal with you or sell you the whole thing cheap. Also I have many extra parts that I bought for my truck.
