Default Starter Boxes, any good ones 12volt gel cell compatible?????

I'm in the process of buying a new starter box, I have a mugen starter box and It's great but, the 2 packs of batteries seem to have degraded quite a bit because I'm not discharging them and really not taking good care of them. So i'm wanting to get a new starter box like the mugen box which has the top plate that moves up and down with when you start your car. Does anyone have info on this type of box?

I have heard and seen a box made by team magic the X5 part number 111016. That exact box would be perfect, if anyone has information where I can get one please post......thanks.


Ron
