Default Buggy/Truggy two starter boxes?

i just tried to configure my starter box to work with a mbx6 and mbx6t. i didnt have much luck. however, i find it hard to believe that everyone who wants to run two classes invests in two starter boxes. am i missing something or are some boxes able to be configured for both vehicles simultaneously?

You would think someone would come up with a starter box with interchangable lids.

what a few people have done at our track when running different trucks is remove all of the alignment posts and install 2 L brackets on either side of the starter box wheel opening that is the same size as the opening in their chassis. now all you have to do is 1) make sure it's the right way around and place the truck over the alignment brackets and presto multifunction box. one guy have 3 trucks that he starts with the same box.

Thanks for the referral. I actually have a new kit coming out that instead of two retractable pegs it comes with four pegs. The MBX5/R and MBX5T lined up fine with just two pegs but the MBX6 and MBX6T are not so close. Therefore you need two completely different mounting positions for the X6 and X6T. With the use of four retractable pegs you can do this. Plus it'll work for a lot of other Mfg's cars that have a buggy and truggy.
