My vote goes to the ofna lightweight box. its only $50 i have set it up to start my jammin, hyper 8, and x-ray, it fit all these cars very well it also uses 2 7.2 packs is extremely lightweight and very compact. I have broken in 5 engines on this box and have only gone thru 1 belt and that was after never checking the tention of the belt.

But if i was to buy another one the new dynamite box looks very nice. But i only choose it based on looks

I've had my OFNA chrome top for 4 years and its still going strong. I threw out the old 12v gel cell and wired in 2 stick packs. Now my motor is forced to turn over.

Mugen box is the way to go! I have had mine for some years now, and just replaced the stock motors with Titan Emaxx motors (550) 14v, and that thing has major hump! 2 7.2v 3500 battry packs, and you can start a mack truck

Personally, I like the OFNA lightweight compact box...I used it all last spring, summer, and fall with NO problems at all. I only use 2 1500mah packs in it, and it has plenty of power to turn ANY engine over, and lasts more than all day, without recharging.
It definitely gets my vote, cuz it just works. You aren't paying for overkill power, or size, it's just what you actually need...

Just my opinion though...
