Default What starter box should I get?

I'm in the market for a starter box for my CEN truggy and would like some opinions on what one to get as I have no clue.I want one that could start 1/8 scale truggies and buggies along with 1/10 scale nitro truck.I was looking at the Losi eight box and the dual motored OFNA box but that one may be overkill.Any other suggestions would be great as well as I have no clue as to which one would suit my needs.

Get the Ofna chrome top starter box because it has a 12V motor that has the power to turn over those real tight pinched engines for the truggy and they last Forever.
Heres a link for one from Carolina RC: http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...idproduct=2004

The chrome box isn't as nice as the duel and doesn't have the torque thats what I replaced with my duel.

This one is good. Stick battery or 12V cell both works with this box

HWYSHREDDER78, You did say you wanted this to start 1/10th as well ? Im not sure that the dual motor ofna will do that for you .

That box works awesome for buggy and truggy. It won't work for a 1/10 stadium truck though. You need a different motor angle.

This box will work for buggy and 1/10 truck if you move the motor assembly internally, but I don't think it will work for a truggy.

Thanks guys,Powerlink, I was wanting to be able to start a 1/10th truck also so thanks for keeping that in mind.I will do some more research on the chrome top OFNA as it does look like it will be right for my needs.
