Default starter box info for crt wanted

Ok guys I need a little help. I bought a couple Jammin CRT's and a Jammin buggy. I got ofna .28's in all of them. I've got roto starters for all of them. I have learned to HATE HATE HATE Roto starters. I have no LHS so all my purchases must be made online, so I have noone to give me any advise.
Will I need to get new motor mounts? Is there a certain starter box I need? Do I leave the Roto backplate on, take it off and leave it naked, or what? Will one box work for the buggy & the truggys?

there is no need to do any changes to the truggy's or buggy to use a start box...most any 1/8 box will do...boxes i like are the Mugen 1/8 start box, and the AE box here are the links...

Best starter box out there is the Ofna Truggy start, there around $100.

Jason, I've never met you are you going to the WOR race in Fergus Falls in January?

does the mugen box have a handle? what about the backplates, should I leave the roto's on? doesn't the flywheel need to protrude thru the chassis?
