HERE we go...
first things first, you will need a rotostart obviously.

you will also need a wheel hex for 1/10 scale cars in order to fill in the gap bettween the shaft and the rotostart hex. very cheap. (12mm)

take out the engine and remove the pullstart. use the directions to assemble the rotostart backplate but before you put it in, you will need to throw in the wheel hex in the rotostart assembly.

here it is pictured to the left

throw it in there, you can do it! dont forget to put the spring in too!!

see, no gap now, it doesnt sit in the rotostart so deep, preventing it from coming out.

with the hex in place, you can proceed to screw on the rotostart to the picco or wasp 26

finished!

and youre done! been working great for me ever since. dont forget to get a high quality 2 mm hex driver for the back plate so you dont strip those suckers out. I know this is rocket science and all, but im confident in you guys. Any questions?
