Default MGT 8.0 Starter shaft

I just recently bought the MGT 8.0. Within 2 tanks (break-in) the starter shaft popped out. I don't know why it did this. But now when i go to run it (only at like 7 tanks now) it comes out when i put the throttle in more than half way. Upon doing so, the engine imediately quits. This has happened maybe 6 times now. Anyone else having this problem!?!

The shaft? You mean the backplate where the starter shaft goes into? There is an issue with that. Its mentioned on the AE site. Contact them, they are sending out the right parts. Luckily i havent had the issue yet.

Good news is that Team Associated said that they did have a problem with a few of them and are going to send me a replacement piece today free of cost. Thank you AE!
