Picking a Starter Box

Hey Guys,
I'm searching for a Starter box, as you can see. But I am wondering if anybody sells a version that can be used to start 1:8 Buggies and 1:10 Trucks. I'm also looking for a RTU unit, but that can be disregarded.
Thanks for any help!
-Jeff

Since buggies engine's site vertical with the chassis & trucks are horizontal with the chassis. One start box wont be able to do it. Unless you get really lucky & the things that stick-up somehow match them both. There are universal boxes though, but I dont think that'll help much.

Yeah, I'm looking for a universal one. Sorry, I should have said that to begin with.

Best choice might be to get a motor and wheel without a box, and hold it with your hand.

That way is no fun to do. I did for awhile, and you're always holding it up and trying to look underneath it to line it up. Not to mention it's trying to bounce outta your hand. Hehe, and if someone else trys to start it for you, they may end up rolling it over backwards.

I would say the Team Magic X5 box. My brother is using it on his MP7.5, and it's awesome, twin 550 motors and 14,4V. It's quite easy to switch between different engineplacements also.

Erlend, do you have any idea where I could find out how much this box is and who carries in in the US?

I have the Associated box and it can be set up for either. It's a pain to go from vertical to horizontal so I just got another box.
