Default Best Starter Box

I was wondering what would be the best starter box to use on a Losi 8 2.0 with a tuned GRP .21, that is fully broke in. I have been using Big Blue (OFNA CHROME TOP) with new stick packs but I still have to lift the front of the buggy then drop it on the wheel to get it turning.
Thanks for your replies

Something with a 12v battery. I've had better luck with those than the dual battery pack.

I like the Ofna Truggy box, however it feels like its made of tin foil, very soft aluminium, but it has great torque strong.
I prefer the Mugen box, I use it with dual 7,4 lipo 4000mAh 25C.

Without a question the OFNA truggy box is the best Ive used.

I also think 2 decent stick packs are a whole lot better than a 12v. They are so much lighter and deliver more voltage.

I thought about upgrading to lipo but worried about over discharging them. It would be an expensive mistake where with NIMH packs its not an issue.
