They might have one at my LHS (Maybe 30 min drive one way from fresno) But no garuntees. I'm about 90% sure that they'll have one at Speedworld raceway in Roseville. Not 100% though so no quoting me lol.

kool well im in fresno cali myself(visalia actually) , i guess im gonna try looken for that pullstartet today.. i tried yesterday but asken people for a pullstart plate similar to the hpi .12 -.15 has gotten me nothen so far.. everybody says nope...is there a specific backplate for the CEN model i should be looken for?.... i might have to take my engine around to these places and have them look for one.. when i ask on the phone i usually get a quick WE DONT HAVE IT.. darn.. between 15 dollars for the oneway bearing,another 15 for the pullstart that i just broke, 20 for another one locally(if im lucky to find one)25 for some more fuel 15 for new batteries for my radio.. and about 16 for a new body....i may as well buy a new truck.............

lol, then you will have to buy all that stuff anyways, this is not a cheap hobby bro, you need a backplate or a pullstart? Either way, its whats standard on an hpi rs4 3 evo, hpi mt or mt2
