Default Good starter box for D8 buggy?

I am trying to decide on a new starter box. I have had good luck with Ofna, so I prefer to buy that brand.

I was considering the Chrome RTR version that uses the 12V gel battery.

or the


with the following batteries.


Which setup would be more powerful overall? Which battery setup would hold a charge longer?

I suppose one advantage of the 2 stick batteries, is it would be easier to carry around. I would like to keep the cost around $100 for the box and battery setup.

I use the Ofna chrome top box with the 12v gel cell battery. Yes it's heavy but durable and kinda old fashion much like myself. I use this box on my D8.
