Reverse the polarity on the motor or get the right starter box.

where did you find this starter box?
I have yet to see a starter and the reversed engine like that.

S it seems he has a 1/10 shaft driven car where the engines are located at the right side of the chassis. Cars like the HPI nitro RS4 and the Kyosho FW05/06.

There are not much starterboxes who can deal with these cars but enough to find:

Cut a hole on the right side and retrofit the wheel on the box. Otherwise you will have to get a new box. I've never seen the wheel on the left side of the box.
