I have the Integy Hippo Box and absolutely love it. Very lightweight, handles on the sides, doesn't use the bulky batteries like the ofna style box does. Comparable in price to the Ofna style boxes also.

If you want a 'nice' looking box get the Mugen. It has a pivoting lid so the drive wheel is flush when you are not pressing down to start the car. The only disadvantage is that it is only designed for transverse mounted engine you cannot swap without buying another box!

The absolute best deal right now is the Ofna 10257 (black box, 12v battery, glow panel, and glow plug ignitor). You still need a gel cell charger, but you can buy that when you buy the box. The retail on this starter is something like $130, but you can buy it from Tower Hobbies for $85!!!! That has everything you need, except a charger for the 12V gel cell. I love mine. Great setup, and works very well with my GT-4.

Wink Ofna starter Box

Ofna's Starter box is cool cause it has everything on it, But the motors are kinda crappy. A few folks i know have the same box and after a season the motors were shot. When i called bruckner hobbies to get replacements they told me the motors are om backorder? I bought some nice torque aftermarket motors to stick in there.
