By far the best starter box I have ever used in my 1/8 Nitro Buggy and Truck. The two huge 550 motors with a protek 4s battery and you will never fear turning over a brand new engine ever again, trust me when I say it has POWER! It also comes with all the accessories to easily mount a 1/8 buggy and truck firmly onto it. This is the battery I recommend... http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/1389_1393_1347/products_id/170974/n/ProTek-R-C-4S-Li-Poly-20C-Battery-Pack-148V-2100mAh-Starter-Box
I have been using this box for several months now to start my Losi 8ight-T 2.0 and it works great! Power to spare, I can break in a new motor with ease, even if it has super tight pinch! One suggestion - I took out the screws that hold to top down, that need to be removed to swing the top open and charge the battery. Instead I affixed some heavy duty velcro to the lid and base - easy to peel open to charge batteries, but stays shut when you want it shut! Easy modification and now it is 100% perfect! You will not regret purchasing this thing, the last one you will ever need!
Heads up: This box is perfect for the TD DNX408 buggy. Just flip the chassis supports around to what the instruction picture shows. Scrap the Tamiya plug. I use a 12V pb motorbike battery so some terminal block connected to gator clips was all I needed. Plan to add a lipo soon for convenience. Great service from A Main, too. Thanks :)
This is a good box when it works. The plugs are insufficient for the current draw and they end up melting. I've gone through 2 sets now. I'm using this with my truggy and RB concepts sport 10. They just need heavier wire and better plugs to the batteries. Otherwise this box it great. I would buy again, but change out the connector for higher current ones.
Best Starter Box on the market today. Paired up with a 4S Lipo this thing can turn over any motor during break in without a problem. If you are looking for a starter box, this is the one to buy.
awesome starter box ive had it for 3 years now used it on my d8 on my 8ight 2.0 and now on my new 8ight 3.0 never had any problems with it
I bought this box because I couldn't get my Losi 8ight 2.0 to work with my chrome top box well. This thing is awesome! I rewired with deans noodle wire, soldered all contacts, and added a relay so I don't have to worry about the switch burning out. Running (2) 2s 6000mah lipos in series, and this thing screams! I can't imagine ever needing more.
This box is excellent. I use it with my Hotbodies D8 and it was very easy to set up. I use a gel cell battery and it easily has the power to turn over anything. For break in there is no such thing as getting stuck on top dead center, it will power through that. It is a nice box with a sleek design and a lot of power, I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a reliable means of starting your motor every time.
Best construction and power I've seen out of ANY box around...BUT...this unit wasn't the best when paired up with my Losi Eight-T 2.0. For some reason I couldn't line up the starter wheel with the flywheel and resulted in a lot of rubbing. The adjustments move too much for my liking...I've officially went with the Losi Box and bought an extra belt since that seems to be an issue with them. At the moment I think I'll just hang on to this box as a backup or in case I get a MBX6-T. P.S.- Living in OC I figured I visit the boys at OFNA in Irvine...They are of very little help in terms of assitance in setting up the box optimally for my Losi application. I expected a little more than that from a high end company.
THE BEST BOX...................................................................................
I have 5 boxes and two of them are this box, they have been great, I did rewire with heavier wire (personel preferance) and did away with the switch(just something to go wrong) I use 4s lipo in them and cannot see needing any more power for nothing, one of them is two seasons old and have done nothing to it but use it. Great starter box!
All you will ever need for buggy or truggy! The best that money can buy. Impecable!!! So reliable! So powerful! I am using it with 2 x 7.4V/5000 mA LiPo in series; Awesome! Invaluable when it comes to breaking in high compression engines - like Ninja or OS V-Spec. -//- Excellent for any buggy or truggy! I. using it for my Nitrage 5.2 truggy and for my Hyper 8.5 buggy. Breaking in a Ninja MR21 engine was peace of cake with this starter-box.
The Best!! Two 775 size motors is what it takes to have a great starter box. Gel cell lead acid works just fine, no need for LiPo if you don't have one...
This is one powerfull starterbox. Adrian gets it spot on. Only slight down side would be the width. Your car can miss the guides, as the lower arms touch down you must force the car down to locate it, but boy will turn anything over with a 4 cell lipo.
Awesome box with extreme power. Turns the tightest engines over with ease on 4s lipos. Nothing else on the market can even compare to the power the two motors put out.
Excellent starter box! it has amazing power! It is the same with the Fastrax Tru start truggy starter.I have this and i put a 12v pb/lead acid battery 7.2Ah and it has amazing power,awesome!
listen to all the reviews this is a exllent piece of equipment,use a high amp battery,higher than the 7-amp gel cell especially for high compression engines you wont have any problems this way
This is a great box. Starts my motors with ease. Only problem i have with it is the tabs you use to line up the chassis keep moving on me.
I think the shining moment for this starter box was when I decided to try to start my new Os Speed 21 for the first time with only one 6 cell Promatch 4200 mah nimh pack, and it pulled it off. The motor did stick at tdc once, but everytime after the first try, it started with absolutely no effort.
Just like everyone else is saying this box is great. Extremely easy to set-up. One thing I would recommend to anyone getting this box is to go ahead and change the Tamiya plugs out for some better ones like Deans. You'll not only avoid fried connectors, you'll also get significantly more power regardless of what you choose to power the box with.
