Mugen box all the way. I don't know why the other guy mentioned spare belts. I've been using mine since 1999 and never replaced a belt.

i have kept using mugen's and i have no complaint. the chassis is just sitting on a flat platform and you just start your car with the chassis sitcking exactly on the platform.

just my 2 cents

+1. Totally agree. I was amazed at the flex on my car when using the serpent box. While it may not be an issue, I just didnt feel comfortable using the serpent box after seeing that.

I now have 2 Mugen boxes and never had a problem with the belts.

I use the Mugen box for my MRX4X cars, and also use it for a couple of my other 1/8th scale cars.

I run Mugen, Kyosho, and Serpent cars.
Only thing I found that is a pain the arse, is that Mugen and Kyosho, Serpent will not line up with the same pins on the starter box. But if you dedicate the sarter box for one car, the Mugen box is great. If you use it for other brands, just identify the pin location for each car.
Never had an issue with the starter box firing up new engines.

Yes, it will fit anything. I've even used it to start dirt oval cars and RC10GTs.

I'm not saying what I'm about to write is correct..... but maybe it can help you....

If you have mystery blown out plug too easy :

1. make sure the rear back bearing, where the crankshaft sit, is still smooth, not gritty feeling. Feel it with your finger and rotate the bearing left and right.... if it feels gritty, replace it, ..... the gritty bearing cause excessive vibrations and somehow kill the filament too soon.

2. did you ever drop your crankshaft ? and what head clearance ?

Is this a Nova motor? If you are running Nova plugs, they aren't as good as they used to be. Try GRP or Sirio plugs. Otherwise, add a head shim. If this motor is old it may need a rod.
