Default Losi Starter Box Question

Is there any way to mod a Losi starter box (not the universal one) to fit a RC8.2? I really want to use one starter box only for both vehicles. If not, what kind of starter boxes are there that will start both vehicles with no hassle? I've heard a lot of good things about the ofna box Thanks.

I don't talk from experience, but from what I've seen you can move the top positioning plates to fit another car. After all, most buggies have similar chassis shapes and sizes.

Again, I don't speak from experience, but I've heard only great things about the Blue OFNA Truggy Box. I've felt and seen them, and it's pretty heavy but that's just from the solid build quality and massive twin motors inside.

I think you'd be more than happy with it if you bought the Ofna box. However, try to move the top plates to fit your RC8.2. The only thing I can say is you'll have a hard time finding a plate configuration that will fit both vehicles without moving anything in between changes (i.e. you were running your losi, and then you can just plop on the RC8.2 without moving the plates, and vise versa)

Hope this helped.
