Cool best starter box

Need help, wondering what the best starter box is for 1/8 scale truggy with a .21 reedy. Make and model would be nice. Currently using Losi universal, she just don't have the sac anymore, (never really did). Thanks

Add a 4s lipo from Protek and it will crank ANY new motor over I don't care how tight the pinch is.

I am not sure. I have only used one starter box. I cannot afford to buy 1 of every starter box and set up with a lipo to find out which one is the best for me.

My mugen starter box works good for me, with non lipo packs.

Has anyone rigged up a way to quick change the pegs from truggy to buggy on these boxes? I hate pitting for guys that don't have the pegs setup.
