Ok, so the ofna box is good but why? what makes one box better than another?

I had a look at a losi box the other day. Had a neat little device on it that made it compatible for the losi buggy and truggy. I was told this box would only work for losi cars though. If I could find a box (or a mod) that would allow me to use one box for both cars I'd buy that. I have an ofna and never had an issue with it.

Ofna blue truggy box for sure. I had an old school giant ofna box, wired up some NIMH pack in series for 14.4 volts and it actually worked pretty well in turning over my Alpha motor, a notoriously tight engine. Then I changed to this box with a 4s lipo, I didnt know what I was missing...this thing is a beast for sure and much smaller and lighter than my previous box.

When used with a 4s lipo the box is light, durable AND the dual motors will turn over any motor even for break-in.

I use the ofna box as well, however it's distributed by 2 companies here. Q-World (blue color) and Robitronic (red color). Both are identical though. I love the box, and use it with a 4S 5000mAh 30C lipo. Makes starting engines cake.

The Mugen BII is not bad either. I'm running a 4s LiPo in it and it will turn over even new engines anytime with ease. But this box is too expensive I have to admit, and I guess, when some day my trusty Mugen box goes down the drain, you can't beat the OFNA blue box.

Adding a 4s lipo helps any box with more grunt.

The ofna truggy boxes gear reduction really turns motors over great.

Can you make a box work for both truggy and buggy? Yes, it takes some thought and intuition.

For me: The D8T and D8 have similar front chassis. The rear, I added lock nuts to fit the rear chassis portions.

So, I have an RC8, SC8 and an RC8T...........will one starter box work for all 3 of these vehicles? I believe the SC8 uses the RC8T chassis and the RC8 a-arms basically.

Only box I have ever seen do the is the Losi box or my custom Ofna box with the losi 1.0 box top hardware.

Ofna truggy box on 4s always wins
