Default Starter Box Questions

Ok its time for me to get a starter box and i am very lost. There are so many chioces. What makes one starter box better then another. I dont want to spend over a hundred bucks. I was looking at the jlr one from ofna because of size and it seemed to be pretty light. What one would you guys recomend and why?
Thanks
Crew

For miniture boxes I like the mugen onroad box(purple). I use the AE box at the moment. Been using it for 4 years with the same motor. No problems

Few things to look out , the motor and the battery in the box. There are motors which use lightweight battery packs and are lightweight small motors , this makes it easier to carry around.

I have an ofna 12v , with a larger 12v battery. This thing gives me lots of use and enough power to kick start even the most stuborn and tight sts or rb motors.

so since i am only using a .12 motor most of the starter boxes out there should have enough torque
