OFNA Blue Truggy Starter Box the only one you will ever need it has twin 775 motors. I have a Mugen starter box and it won't turn over a tight motor, the OFNA Blue Truggy Starter Box turns it over as if it does not have a glow plug in it! Link below!

OFNA blue truggy as mentioned. If you race a good bit a LiPo battery (4s) will make this puppy sing.

The Ofna box is NICE but have you looked at the Hudy Box it is SWEET and small and works Great not as strong as the Ofna box but just as good.

If you do get this one - just replace the Tamiya plugs inside to deans plugs & your good to go.

Great starter box, but you can buy it from NitroRCX and in multiple colours for $44.45. It's exactly the same as the Dynamite one just rebranded.

I use the Ofna blue truggy box and I'm happy with it. But if I was to buy one right now I'd go with the above starter for $45.

I highly recommend if you're going to run a 4S Lipo pack to go with a twin 775 motor starter box not a single motor box. Especially if you're going to be breaking in high pinch Taiwanese manufactured engines.
