What they mean is a new backplate that has a hole in-line with the crank hole that re-directs the fuel flow up into the sleeve's ports since the backingplate normally blocks most of the ports.
This is M-Speed's version:

I got that pic. off of their Japanese website (real hard to navigate when you know NO Japanese!). I make my own, but if you want one for a Novarossi, RC Rage I think makes them . They are $45 for the regular and $60 for the race version. I have used one of my own design for about a year now and it works great for on-road use, especially at top revs (gives a top-end rush feel to the powerband), but they suck for off-road unless you run dirt oval (where I mostly use mine). CMB Italia engines has been using this design in their .21 race engines for a while now, serpent just cuts scallops out of the backplate on the Novamega race .21's.

No, they are for non-pull start engines only. I run one of my own design on a CV .15 with some special porting and it will hang with the 5 port .12's on the dirt oval in my sprint car.
