if you mount some angle brackets on the box to fit in the slot for the spur gear it will work for all 8ights

He means flywheel, not spur gear.

Please explain.

I use angled brackets on my box. The only slot on my chassis are for the flywheel.

The blue OFNA truggy box is great for double duty since the plastic alignment pieces mount to the box on the single center slot. I had mine set for my RC8 and STRR all I had to do was slide the rear to the right spot. I just made marks on the box to where it needed to be put for each.

BUT the idea many have used is to just make something to grab the back of the flywheel opening. This is truly universal as every car has a flywheel opening and they are almost all about the same size.
