I use the RB starterbox. It's very powerful with the venom lipo battery of 14.8V and you don't need to dremel the chassis to make it work.
The big advantage is that you can use it on both truggy and buggy (reversing the front mount) and also for on-road cars.

Reno, Thanks for making The Ohio RC Factory your first race of 2011. Hope you will return next year. I never had the chance to talk to you but I did get to run on the track with you quite a bit. I never felt like you were going to do anything unsportsman like on the track while you were riding my wing LOL.

I didn't grind mine either. The box needed some dremeling, the slot in the top of the box for the rear mount needing extending, then the posts shortened to go underneath the wishbones against the back of the chassis.

You guys are lucky to have Reno in the Durango camp. You couldn't find a nicer and more helpfull person in Rc...
The year he spent in Australia was probably the best thing that ever happened to mugen downunder as far as off road is cocerned. I for one would highly recomend you go up to Reno and have a chat with him and make the most of his time in the U.S.

Hello Reno and Lutz,

Any chance you guys can make it to the fallowing race?

http://events.rcsignup.com/events/di...nt.cfm?ID=1753

It is the biggest race in Canada, and would be nice to have TD drivers there.

yo im not that short on cash and i actually am going to look into possibly opening something. but i would need a partner.i have noticed that there are alot of people that are now in the hobby in nj. the issue is that any track in nj is south. well i am not. it sucks driving 1.5 hrs 1 way. if i do do something it is going to be i mixture of some wild tracks. and big. something along the lines of purpose /comp built type tracks. property is at an all time low right now but im sure that there are lots and lots of laws and issues,and that is what will kill me. lawyer fees.also a killer is how seasonal it is. i wouldnt be able to build what i would want inside,because a warehouse that big i couldnt afford. something needs to be done

Try shortening the rod that connects the front and rear brakes. The longer the rod, the more front brake bias.
