+1 on the OFNA Blue Top.

Buy one of these and a few spare wheels and you won't need another box for years.

This thing is a beast with 2 775 motors, and when they go (if they ever do)replace them with the Traxxxs 775 motors for about $20 a pop, and then you can go outside and start your real car if you wanted to.

And it's very light. The box with batteries weighs less than my Losi box alone. I got tired of my losi box stalling when the engine had fuel in it, so i dumped it for the truggy box. Now i can actually have enough power to turn over a new engine!

If it aint broke then dont fix it.... http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ox-w-12V-Motor
Nothing better then that. Yea its heavy, but if you have to run around with your starter box to start your ride that many times, learn to tune.

+1.

I originally had the Losi Starter box that came in the RTR and it failed to turn over the 427 on my 8ight T when it was brand new. I bought the Ofna with a gel cell and haven't looked back.
