The Mugen box has been my choice and seems to be the best for the application with no modding to the box or car chassis. I raised my wheel in the box a few washers and it works great plus has good torque to roll the tighter engines...

Mugen is the right starter box.

I just bought the Team Magic Starter box and it works great for the 8ight. Also no modding necessary, and the wheel is small enough it doesnt even touch the chassis! Plenty of torque to turn over the most stubborn motors, just like the Mugen box. It also seems quite light, and it is nice and small.

Is this Mugen starter box you are talking about?

Yeah, that would be the one. I'm not a fan of the purple so I had mine powder coated blace before I put it together. Don't get frustrated with the instructions. The Japanese is kind of hard to follow.

Yeah that box is nice, even if it is battleship grey. It's way better than that purple I think...

Hey all. I just drove on a track for the first time with the 8ight, been waiting all winter for this day.
This thing RIPS!!!!!
It handles so sweet!! I honestly didnt want to leave. A buddy and I hit up Wolcott Hobby in Wolcott, CT and the track was hooked up and it was 52 and clear skies-all day! Im sorry but I dont want to go back to electric even though I know once winter comes I have no choice. But I honestly have no complaints about the 8ight. I love it. I think I want the T too. When does the Losi dual box come out?

The purple Muguen BII box makes me feel masciline. lol.

I was breaking in my buggy today. was a little strange, when i would turn left it would lean out then i would turn right and it would be too rich. anyone else have this problem? could this be fixed by having a longer fuel line? mine is cut quite short.
