I have used the Thunder Tiger Pro S/steel box for the past 5 yrs with no problem. I have 2 one for my Stadium and the other for the Hyper 8.

Don't know if its better than the Ofna box but from what I have read the Ofna is a good box as well. I think these are the most popular boxes out there.

If your looking for a starter box thats smaller and
weighs alot less. The Mugen off-road starter box
is a good choice.

+1 on the mugen box its awesome. Lots of guys say the ofna truggy box is really good too but I didnt get one cause its quite a bit bigger. I race two classes and am trying to cut down on pit bag space, so to do so Im running smaller starter boxes.

I have had the Mugen and now have the Ofna Truggy starter box and the hands down winner is the Ofna Truggy box...quality is top notch, peg system is great, use a 4 cel lipo and its super light and I only charge mine once a month with no problems

Yeah a couple guys i run with have the same box, i was frustrated when i posted this earlier lol, think i just have a bad battery or bad box, charged it like lhs said to yesterday, an when he gave it to me said it was charged thats twice an the box last for 5 min before it goes dead. Doesnt turn motor over. Made sure piston wasnt at tdc also. Guys last week said motor wasnt turning fast enough. Think i have bad battery. Stuff not working + being new= frustrated an wanting to quit lol Gonna take battery back an have em check . Sorry to vent guys just a bit frustrated.

I bought this box and have no regrets. Works great for the truggy and buggy. The blue Ofna 8th box is another great one too.



Let me add to change the setup for 10th onroad requires atleast 30 minutes time to undo nearly all the bolts, rubber wheel, etc.
