I used mine this past weekend with my 8T and it's awesome. Box comes completely assembled/pre-wired, all you have to do is install the battery. It works awesome and has plenty of power. It fired my new Dynamite Platinum .28 for break-in with no pre-heat necessary.

Yes, it also came with wires for 12v direct hook-up.

I set mine up with an HT Li-po battery the other day. Havn't used it at the track yet, but it works for my 8B and hopefully soon 8T. The wheel wobbles a bit though.

Sorry I can't right now. My camera got stolen from the kid's car.

Just put some padding on the bottom of the box where you want the battery and then Zip-Tie it. Really easy.

Ok, got the box today, and all i can say is WOW This losi box is really nice. I put some 4200 sticks in it, and it has major hump. Tried it on both my truggy and buggy, and it kicked the flywheel over with no problems, or moving the car around. It also comes with 3 different power supplys for gel, stick, or 12v battey connection...The motors seem to pretty strong now, but if they die out quick, i will just swap them with some new ones($13.99) or strip my mugen box out with the emaxx motors i installed....
