If you have race engines with notoriously severe pinch, the best starter is probably the Ofna chrome top. Yes it's big, clunky and weighs a ton with a gel cell, but if you can't start an engine with that box, the engine simply cannot be started. That 12 volt motor is so powerful, you can bring a fossilized dinosoar back to lif with it!

OFNA/Fastrax/SMD Blue Truggy Box. Easy to use, fairly lightweight and tough!

OFNA Truggy Starter Starter Box. the blue looks cool
It's heavy though. I use it with 2 x 7.2v batts of 4000mah. Last for the whole day with my buddies using it too!

easy, choose from these 3, depending on what you want/need

ofna truggy, blue: turn over anything, can run lipo for less weight

ofna chrometop: turn over anything, heavy gel, power panel for glow battery meter etc

mugen: can run lipo for light weight, turns over most anything. tonyscrews has sweet buggy/truggy dual mounts if you run both

all are top

I just picked up the OFNA truggy. Scary on 4 S lipo. Nice and light too, just wish it had a power panel
