Default .12 NovaRossi back plate?

Okie dokie I recently bought a rs4 2 from a guy on ebay and I have a problem.

When I received the car it didn't have a way to start it besides a bump box......He failed to mention this in the description and since I am not a huge Rc enthusiasts, I didn't know I had to ask. Well now Im stuck with a car I can't start with a motor I know is badass!!! Especially with the two speed. My question is where can I find a back plate and bearing so I can use my spin starter or pull starters? I might aswell ask this on top, where can I get a piston and sleeve for it aswell? He said this thing is badass, but I don't feel any resistance when I hand spin the flywheel. Im sure it runs, but not right away.... A link of a novarossi supplier would help, I tried googling it and had an EPIC FAILURE haha

to run the pullstart you will need the crank as well as the crank has the extended pin for the pullstart .

It will be much easier and to find a nice starter box on ebay. Once you go bump box, you never go back.

In addition to crank, backplate, bearing and pull start you would probably also need another set of motor mounts and maybe even a flywheel. Just get a box.

No I think i only need the backplate....Its already fitted for the car...I think! Reason I do not want the box is I do not want to lug it around for just street bashing. Pullstarts are easy 1 2 3 pull lol. Please do explain how it would rob the motor of power, as I have never heard of this?


bump box go for 60-100 new and then you still need to buy the expensive batteries for it. Since I wrecj my car alot I should save my money for repair parts.

For your information... The MR12 has been discontinued... It's almost 4-5 years old and while you can still slap in a piston and sleeve from the NS-12 line of motors, you're out of luck in finding a pull start crank and pull start back plate for it. 1. The MR12 was never designed as a pull start motor to begin with, it's a onroad/sedan .12 motor build for true bump starting for the serious racer 4-5 years ago... 2. You can try and contract www.novarossiusa.com there number is on there website for more info and or you can try www.nitrohouse.com ... Nitrohouse for one does stock old/discontinued motors and parts. Maybe someone there can help you Frankenstein a motor together with the parts that will work. There number is posted on there web-site as well... Note... for all the time and money needed to make your MR12 a pull start motor you could have brought that starter box you said you didn't have the money or the time for... .02

That engine is not a special engine. It is a purpose built race engine and was never designed or intended to be used with a pull start. Race engines are not pull start and because of this converting them takes some time, effort and money.

The way a pull start robs power is because there is a one-way bearing as part of the pull start that the engine turns when running. Also, it obviously add weight to the car.

If you are dead set against a starter box, you may be better off getting a new pull start engine. Especially since you noted there seemed to be very little compression to the engine you have already.

As soon as you put a pull start on it isn't a race engine anymore.
