Here is the backing plate for the SH .18 the only thing is depending on you starter wand, The shaft might not fit the Redcat Plate the best.

Funny we had a racer at the track break a pull start on the 3.5, an offered HPI didn't fit, the screw holes were too far apart.

The 70111t backing plate is the one for the sh .21 (3.5)
