Default Which starter box?

Just got my X1 CRT and have been looking at starter boxes. Which one of these 2 do you think would work the best? The truck has been set up for bump start.

Planning on using a 12V gel cell.

Thanks

I have used a wide variety of boxes. The Ofna truggy box seems to be the best.

LiPo, Stick pack, or gel cell battery, and more than enough grunt to start even the most stubborn engines. Not te cheapest box out there but it the best one I have found yet. Just change out the stock power plug on it and you'll be good to go.

Ofna Blue truggy box is the most powerful box I have used. My second favorite was the Ofna chrome top, grey side box with power panel.

I had the mugen ended up replacing the motors after about 6 months not enough power. Nothing has stopped my Ofna box from turning over. Way more power
