Default Starter Box 'X' will flat out run over a motor

Which?
I know we have done this, but it usually ends up with "that setup is too heavy", " my battery last 4 race days" etc

Which box and battery combo, probably ofna chrome top or blue truggy, flat out TURNS over a motor(.21 buggy)?

I know about heating etc, this question assumes that knowledge....

This Kyosho Box on 4S lipo does the job. Plus it's light and small.

Ofna blue truggy box and I had to up the mah on my 4s because my box works so well everyone uses it so I went to a Venom 4s 3200. Works great. I have been using this box for over a year on lipo and no issues so far.

Ofna Blue Truggy + 4S LiPo. I've used other boxes and none come close, except for the Dynamite copy:

Another vote here for the ofna truggy starter box with 4S lipo.

WARNING though. If you put it against the ground, it can possibly reverse the earth's rotation

+1 for me on this as well. I run a Losi 2200mah 4s in mine. Works great. I can easily make 3 race days on a single charge.

LOL , thats what i need. Does he tune your motor by making a mean face at it ?

If you dont have chuck, then the Ofna blue box with a lipo will do the trick. Once you put a lipo in any starter box, it like a brand new box. You'll as your self why you waited so long to do it.

My blue truggy box on 4s lipo has also broken in 9 engines last year and it keeps on going. I race 2 cars about 2x per month. No signs of stopping. The losi box didn't last 6 months before it needed work. I have an ofna chrome top that works ok but the blue truggy box is the best.
