The truggy box internals look just like the old black Ofna universal box. I still have 2 of them (one for The Deuce on for the 8ight) and they work great. Replaced a switch on one, occasionally have to rebend the contact plates. If the motors get slow take 'em out and spray with motor spray, lube, and they come right back to life. I'm converting one for a buddy to use on his Revo. I just got a NIB Dynamite Torque start for $33 so I'm going to try it with the 8ight. IF IT SUCKS I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT, LOL! I know one thing, if it's set up for 1/8 off-road you can't fit a 12V cell inside, and 2 side by sides don't fit well either. Had to figure out how to build my own stick packs last night, ha ha ha.

Just an FYI, but don't get the Dynamite box to use with an 8ight. After some custom drilling on the alignment plates I got the 8ight to line up with the starter wheel. That's when you discover that the flywheel diameter is too big for the small hole in the 8ight chassis. Dremeling the wheel is more modding than I want to do, LOL.

Get the Ofna chrome top box. The one motor inside of it is big enough to
start your real car with. It is as complex as a hammer; no belts,pulleys
alignment brackets or tensioners to bend or break. Just a big motor connected
to a wheel and a big 12v gell battery that lasts for years and needs a charge
maybe once a month. It's a little on the heavy side, but nothing is worse than
burning up a weak starter box motor during a tight engine braek-in or breaking
a starter box belt or pulley just before a big race.

p/s; It comes with a carrying handle (make sure you put your name on it if
you race because over 50% of the racers at your track will have one.)

I have not had to replace anything yet, but its only 3 months old. I bought 2 extra wheels, and 2 extra belts with it just in case. i have also been told to replace the tamiya connectors with Deans, but I have not done that yet
