Default Starter Box for 8ight 2.0

Just picked up a nice 8ight 2.0 RTR but need a starter box. Is there one that is much better than another? I was just going to get the losi box but wanted to get your opinions first. Thanks.

The 8ight 2.0 box with single 775 motor is pretty good and can be found for a reasonable price usually. The ofna box is supposed to be the gold standard (chrome top i think)

The losi boxes are good but if you change cars later on the box wont fit....grab yourself an adjustable one, iv had Dynamite, Sworkz, Q world.... most top brands to the job nicely

Ofna truggy box is the first AND last starter box you'd ever buy.

+1. Have had the same two Ofna boxes for a long time and used them on about 6 different manufacturers. The blue one for 6 years and chrome top for 11 years. Just had to replace one of the motors in the chrome top. $17 after a decade of use is well justified.
