Default Kyosho or OFNA starter box?

I have a Kyosho IGT2 and want to go with a starter box. The 1/8 OFNA Chrome Top Starter Box is one choice, but the chassis is a little too long for the off-sets to cover all sides. I was wondering if the Kyosho Multi Starter Box would be long enough to hold the Chassis?

Other than that, I'm thinking of going with the OFNA chrome top.

They are pretty much the same length, the Ofna chrome top starter box is just wider .

The chrome top box should be more then enough for the IGT2.

I currently run the chrome top box with my IGT1 and I have plenty of room left to fit the longer IGT2 chassie.

I've seen plenty of guys at the off road track starting truggies with the chrome top box they have the same long chassie as the IGT2 and they fir with no problems.

Another positive point about the chrome top is the battery and motor. The chrome top uses a 12v gel cell battery and one big motor. The gel cell lasts a long time and has alot more power than stick pack batteries. The motor in the chrome top is alot more powerful than little 540 motors used in some boxes too.

Check out the 10244 Truggy Start box from OFNA. The box has two 775 motors. You can either use 2 stick packs or a gel cell with it. I use it to start my buggy, truggy, and DM-one. The Chrome top is also a good choice

Got the OFNA Chrome top and a 12v battery. Looks like it'll hold the chassis just fine.

Thanks for the help.
