I'm selling mine, it has some stickers on it and needs a battery as my Gel cel only lasts about an hour it's not worth shipping with it.

have been using it almost a year. No problems and it never left me stranded. I have used it to start other guys cars when their box wouldn't do it. I use a 4s lipo and one truggy box is good for 2 cars all day long.

Yea if you buy this box you won't be disappointed. Extremely light, very powerful, and extremely reliable. Starts both cars all day long with just the 2 3000mah nimh packs I use. Only thing I didn't like before I skinned it was that it looked EXACTLY like everyone elses, or at least 1 of every 3 it seems like at my local track.

Go to any race in the UK and its the most used box. Does make it interesting when your pitman has to locate your one in the pits though ! Going to have to sort out a skin for it for next year.
