Default What is the Best Starter Box for Losi 8ight?

I was looking for a Box that uses 2 6 cell stick batteries and already fits the Losi 8ight without having to modify the wheel. Basically a box that has a smaller wheel on it. Any info or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

The OFNA 10245 will start your LOSI 8ight without a problem and it uses 2 7.2 Volts 6 cell stick packs. and you will love the starter box because of the weight which is very light.

Default starter box for Eight

I used the Muggen box. I did raise the electric motor a little bit for better contact with the flywheel but it works great with no grinding needed to be done to the chassis

The Mugen starter box is hands down the best starter box for 1/8 Offroad anything.

Ofna 10245 works good, small, compact and uses two stick packs.

Mugen box works good to, but you will have to grind the edges of wheel, and its almost 3x the price of the Ofna.

Here is a pic of the Ofna
