Default Man its been a while but im back!

Whats up fellas, some of you might remember me from a while back, I had to take some time away from r/c but now I have more time on my hands and am gearing up for a wonderful season.

but first I need a little help, I have been away of the scene for a little while and now I need a decent starter box that will have problem turning over any high performance .12 on a 1/10th touring car AND can also turn over any .21-.28 on a buggy or truggy with no issue, I am assuming I am going to need a 750 motor, but will a single be fine?

I currently own a duratrash 1/10th universal box with dual 550s and it struggles with .12 novarossis....

so here are my guidlines

1) powerful enough to start ANY engine out there.
2) capable of supporting 1/10th onroad and 1/8th buggies and truggies.
3) needs to fit a 12v gel battery pack in it (I dont mind the weight).
4) optional but would be nice, a power panel that shows the battery level and lets me hook up a glow ignitor wire to it.

thanks in advanced, and I can't wait for the warmer weather to start having fun.

Looks ok, would a 12v gell pack fit in those boxes?

seems like I would rather buy a more known brand which parts are easily available for.

integy parts always looked kinda cheap

I'm not sure if a 12v gell pack will fitI use 2-3500 NiMh stick packs. Also I've had My integy starter box for 3 yrs. with no problem 750 motor still strong have not replace any parts....

I've been using this Ofna PART #: 10258. It's the Pink one with one big high torque motor. Had it for about 5 years. Still on original parts except for the battery which I have a 12v gel cell in there. You can purchase the power panel to hook up the glow starter. I've broke in several .12 Novarossis no problem.

Then you have the same one I do with the motor sticking out of the side. The chrome top says it comes with the same motor.

the only issue you're gonna have with using one starter box is the onroad and offroad engines are mounted differently. i would stick to your old one for the offroad and the jlr " http://www.redrc.net/2007/08/ofna-jl...d-starter-box/ " for your 1/10 onroad, compact and light especially if you use lipos in it it's a very strong starter box haven't had any engine that it could not turn over
