Default Help choosing starter box

I'm looking for a good starter box for my losi 8ight 2.0. I have the O.s speed and vspec engine. I'm looking at the Losi rtr or is there something better? I'm just running buggy. Also I'm planning on using a lipo battery on the box.

I purchased a OFNA Truggy Blue Box here on the forums used with lipo, I was surprised how light and powerfull this box is compared to my old losi starter.

I got the ofna silver box, it only has one motor but I have never had a prob starting anything with it and I am just using a 12v bat in it. The rtr box is ok tell the belt breaks and it will. I have been waiting a month now for another belt. Do like the others and get the blue box and if you are on a budget get the sliver one.

i loved chrome tops 5-7yrs ago when i got back into RC and doin nitro for 1st time.

the new losi box i'm sorry it misses the mark. a rough design and weak plastic parts on a motor thats failure prone despite running design changes (in fact i think this yr's revision is worse than last yrs). no thx.

i bought a truggy box when i had some extra scratch while waitin for parts to fix losi box.

2 words

TRUGGY BOX!!!
