If you want o e box for both the buggy and truggy then you need to either swap the internals from the ofna box into the psi box or mod the top of the ofna box to accept the losi box alingment braces. I did the second and I works like a charm. It was not easy but it was worth it.

I took the Ofna blue truggy box and put some stops on the sliding part of the peg plates not the pegs them self and can adjust it in seconds from 8b to 8t. I didn't mod anything. Works great.The best box out.

Despit my love for Losi - there box sucks - either wait for them to refresh the current box with the 775 motor or go with the Ofna

Wow a lot of people like the Ofna box

I love my losi box

I had one that lasted about a year and a half

and just recently bought a new one.

They are easier to work on if you rewire them.

I still use the losi box....sure it kinda sucks stock....but with a little tweaking they work just fine...and for the fact its a 2 second swap from bug to trug is the biggest bonus of all.
