I have broke in 4 speed engines, 3 GRP's and a buddys Nova with the ofna truggy box and a 4s lipo. Its simply the best box there is. When one of my buddys starter box takes a dump at the track they come to me and use my box. My box is setup for Losi buggy and truggy and it even started a Mp9 last weekend. Dont mess around this is the only starter box that should be sold in off road nitro.

Default Ofna box buggy and Truggy set up

How do you have your box set up to do the buggy and the truggy I have had difficulty getting mine lined up for just the truggy. The wheel hits the opening on the chassis no matter what I do .Could you post a pic of your set up? it sure would help.

I ordered my blue truggy box with a spare wheel after 2 seasons of racing and bashing I've yet to replace the original wheel that came with it.

Ofna blue truggy box for sure. It's insane how much power and speed it has. Only thing I wish it had is a spring release for the top instead of the screw. The Mugen box has this spring release. Makes opening it very easy.

Just remove the screw, and add some velcro ( about 1.5 inches ) where the screw used to be..works like a charm
