Default starter box for the eight

I'm tired of using buddys starter boxes wile I wait for losi to get there box out. I'm just going to buy another box. What box workes the best for this car? I want to just drop it on the box and go. I like the looks of the team majic box, will this one work?
Thanks

+1 for the Team Magic X5 II starter box. It works perfect and will turn over the tightest of engines. Also I love the smaller size and how light it is.

I was in same situation so I just bought the new blue Ofna box. It was very easy to set up for the 8ight. It easily spins cold motors. Just had to trim the wheel a little.

Thumbs up

The guys around here use all kinds of start boxes, but from what I have seen it looks like the plate that you can put on the start box is pretty sweet! Heres a link...

I use the Mugen BII also with NO modifications. Actually, I did have to put a spacer under the wheelpiece but you can do that while putting screws in, no real modifications. Had to do this to higher the wheel .3, thats it.
Is there any other mods needed?

Oh, and the plates will only work on some boxes so check with them over there at CarolinasRC for specs.

it is supposed to be released 6/20. everybody should have them soon. bmain lists them but are out of stock.
and why new clutch? i hope you mean new shoes only. losi has the best clutch on the market right now. switch to khz 7075 shoes and you will be golden.
