Best starter box is the ofna truggy box. Never seen a better box. I have been using one since feb with no issues whatsoever. I run a losi 4s lipo and deans wet noodle wiring and the thing will start anything.

SMD/OFNA/Fastrax (what ever you want to call it) is the best box around. I've just modified mine to fit my onroad car

Just a little problem with marketing either side of the pond I believe

Ofna market a number of boxes in the U.S. which as someone has pointed out in another post are marketed elsewhere under the fastrax and SMD brands,

Frank, if yours is the twin 775 motor box, then it's the same as this guy is looking at.

I've had a couple of the SMD box's, one of which I bought as a spare, but as i've never had an issue with the first box, I sold the spare on.
Never had any issues with it whatsoever.
The SMD original - blue, and the Evo box - orange, are amongst the best on the market.

Just requires the whole motor plate moving over to suit the drivetrain of the 8ight.
