Default Losi 8ight buggy starter box

Just wondering what box everyone is using. I've heard bad things about the losi box. I am thinking about the ofna truggy box. I don't really want to have to cut the chassis. Any help would be appreciated.

The Losi box is awesome, but the stock wiring sucks. Once rewired you'll love it, especially if you run Lipo batteries.

re-wire with Deans Wet Noodle and grab a cheepo 4 cell lipo off ebay and your good to go......if you puff the motor's..you have a couple option's......go stock again....just call losi and they should send you a pair......Or Upgrade to something a little more robust like the Traxxas Titan motor's...there cheep and readily available...or if you know some on-road guys you might be able to snatch up a couple 27T stock handout's....most on-road guys have Tonns of spare stocker's they never run.

I have the Torque Start from Dynamite. Seems to work fine and I got it used for only like $30.

Losi box has worked fine for me except for having the motors fry way to early like withing 3 weeks of buying but replaced with stockers and had not had a problem in 1 year.
