Default 1/5 Redcat Rampage DR brand new won't start

i saw an old post with same title, didn't know if to reply on that post or just create a new one...well i just bought a redcat rampage dunerunner...brand new and it won't start.. manual says engine needles are already set, but what i've been hearing is that redcat (still waiting to hear back from them) won't refund or exchange, just send parts for you to replace (***) anywho..i'm not getting any spark from the coil, i put in a new one that i have from my rampage MT, still no spark, so i'm reading the engine manual and it says something about clearance from coil and flywheel magnet could effect but the way it's explaining what to do is a bit confusing...
(manual:turn off the flywheel magnet to the other side, insert one or two more cards (personal cards) into the clearance) this is the part i don't get...what kind of cards (business/credit cards) and how u adjust the offset..i'm just blown i gotta work on brand new RTR instead of just getting a replacement..is this the norm with all mfg, if not my next purchase will be another mfg

Have you received any response from redcat? I contacted them and they answered right away. Have you got your issue fixed?

What they ment was for you to place business cards between The flywheel and the magnet, that way you will get the right distance.. That coild be the problem, but i think the ingnition is done.. But try to to have only 1 card at first, if that doesent work, you need to file a DOA to the seller!

(i know the post's from 2018, but just to give some pointers)
