+1 on Ofna blue or the Hudy one. I have both and both work great! If you want a light one, go for Hudy.

Not sure about that box, but I had a Losi RTR box that was cranking over brand new engines. The key was to pre-heat the engine >200 (for many reasons) and 4S lipo.

All that aside, I have the OFNA Truggy Blue box and the Kyosho, both are awesome.

OFNA Chrome with its big 'ol motor running a 4s lipo has worked great for me.

Hmm, that will be a tough one to answer unless someone tried that starter box before. Never heard of that brand but there are money out there and some copy ones so I guess you just have to give that a try and share it with us.

Oh, yah, I forgot about my Kyosho starter box. That thing is good either and power.

My friend used his starter box QWorld to try to bring his engine but simply can't do it. With Kyosho, one hit and the engine start!

But I don't like the design though and it's heavy plus the handle is not comfortable to hold.
