This is the HUDY "Star Box" 1/8 off road starter box. The HUDY Star-Box is the world's lowest, most ultra-compact, lightweight professional starter box that has been designed for 1/8 off-road cars, making this the ultimate star amongst all starter boxes on the market!

The Star-Box has been designed to accommodate either standard 7.2V NiMH, or 7.4V LiPo batteries (Optional Bullet Cable Available for use with bullet terminal LiPo Packs). With its ultra-cool stylish design, the Star-Box comes fully assembled and ready to use. The premium quality, long-life drive belt system is driven off of a powerful 775-type, fan cooled electric  motor. The CNC-machined aluminum housing and top plate have a high-quality black coating for extra durability, while the countersunk housing screws are recessed with the surface to eliminate unwanted protrusions. An integrated switch is attached to a premium-quality wiring harness with extra-thick cables and quick change "fast-on" connector, so no soldering is required. The quick change starter wheel design allows the wheel to be mounted on both right or left side, and allows fast & simple starter wheel replacement with the removal of only 3 screws! An integrated composite handle with ergonomic back cover allows for comfortable carrying, and tall plastic feet are included to configure the Star-Box for use with taller truggies.

Perfect! So small. So powerfull. Bought an extra wheel but have never used it due the durability of the materials. So yes, you can by spareparts without any problem. Btw. its too small for some truggies.

I have this box and I love it....Super light and easy to haul to and from the track.....I have had no problems with the wheel since I pre heat my engines before starting like you should if you want your stuff to last.....I would buy again if needed.

Great starter box. Super light weight. Its not the best box for breaking in motors because the included wheel seems to be pretty soft, I chewed up the included wheel up breaking in my Werks B6. All the spare parts for this are available through RCAmerica, HUDY's U.S. distributor.

Please think twice before you pay your money to get this Starter box,,,, actually its not bad but it was not produced and disigned to be used under the load of some engines on the market,,, my engines are all Novarossi i am running 3 of them on my JamminX2 and MBX6,,, one of my engines is not fully broken in which damaged the wheel of my starter box (Hudy),,,,, the negatives 1- No spare parts 2- wheel is not as strong as ofna (Dual) or Mugen Other things are all POSITIVES
