Default Starter Box

I'm currently using the Ofna chrome top. I have no complaints other than its size and weight. I would like to go with a lipo for next year. But is there a smaller box i can go with that will handle turning over .21 engines?

The ofna blue truggy box is the only one to use. imo. with a lipo it is unbeatable.

Also the associated box works great with some cars. My mugens fitted terrible but my D8T fits great. And it is a little less expensive then the ofna truggy box. But if you got the money to spare the truggy box is hands down the way to go. Works great with stick packs, lipor, or gel cell.

+2 on the ofna truggy box with a lipo it will start anything. For a lipo you want a 4s 15c (20c is better) 2000+ mah battery. I use the one from losi. It's about 80 bucks. Guys say the cheap ones on eBay work well too IDK. Also rewire the box with a high end wire like deans wet noodle. That will help the box alot.
