My teammate has a D8T and I a D8. We use a OFNA Truggy start box for both.

We have it set up for both. You do not have to move anything if you set it up right.

I do use the OFNA blue box as well. I removed the "pins" and glued a piece of soft rubber so the cars don't slide around. Now all I have to do is make sure the flywheel is lined up over the hole and I'm GTG for both cars.

I am sure it works with most boxes, but on the Truggy start box, you set it up for the buggy to fit against the front bracket, and the truggy for the rear (it might be backwards, it has been awhile lol).
You simply slide it the buggy/truggy to the right bracket and push down.

It is great!!

If the front bracket works for Buggy it will work for truggy. Because the chassis's are the same fromt he motor forward..

I set mine up to fit the truggy, and the buggy mounts right up.. I use and OFNA Chrome Top..
