@ Slinky,
Your build looks pretty decent. The biggest problem I see is the gap between your coil and rotor is way too big. It should be as small as you can get without touching.
I would also get rid of the core protrusion. Make the core as flush with the coil as you can. This will induce much more current into your trigger coil, which will help in turning on your transistor.
You might also want to anchor the coil down. Besides poor performance, it could flop around and bounce up into the rotor.
Don't worry about which way you wound your coil either. Try it with one polarity, and if that doesn't work, switch the wires. Which ever way pushes the magnets away is the right way.
Try these things and see how it works.
