best? based on what?

they're a f**k heavy box, and if they were the best, why did the big blocks get C6's, and why do a lot of racers use modified C4's/C10's?

In the FC/FD's it should be a FMX.

A FMX is an extremely strong box, but very heavy.

When I built my LTD -FC 351- a couple of trans places told me to get the FMX strengthened instead of replacing it with a C10, as they are supposedly stronger.

I ended up going with a toploader instead, much more fun, but not indestructable as I found out.
