Starter box advice

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Ok, I'm seriously thinking about switching to non-pullstart for my Ofna buggy and I'm wondering what's the best way to go for starter boxes. As far as I can tell, some come with a big battery of their own and a wallpack charger that you just plug in - cool. Others require buying stick packs and a charger - bummer. Most seem to be Ofna but I'm guessing it doesn't matter much as long as they're for an 1/8 scale size. What should I be looking for if I buy used?

I use a SVM starter box myself and it works great. If it's for your 1/8 make sure it's a big one to hold the buggy up not like the 1/10 scale ones.

Ofna makes some nice ones in plastic now so they must be lighter. Check out their website (

I also have on for my Serpent and I wouldn't go back to pull start. However if you have a pullstart engine you can still use a starter box to make things easier.
