The 8ight box is awesome, just rewire it with some Deans 12AWG and it's a great box, the stock wiring sucks. The way it fits the 8T/8B is great!

I'm not sure how long till they get here, but the new Team Orion boxes look SICK. I can't wait to get one.

I totally agree the OFNA blue box is the way to go.

I have had both the Losi box and this OFNA one. And I like the OFNA one better.

the chrome top is a little hard to use for the losi, its wide and the car has to be offset really far to oneside because of the engine placement, you will wanna get one of the narrower boxes

If you are looking for something cheaper than the truggy start, get this box.

It is really worth it to just by the truggy start. You will wish you had down the line when you have to break in a tight engine.

The Ofna truggy box gets my vote, broke in a new engine (Novarossi 21-5k) no problems.

Buy another top, file out the pivot screws so they are slots and not holes. Then its only one screw to change the top.

Get the truggy start. Has done 3 RB engine break-ins, regular racing and abuse. Have had for over a year and it's top notch
