They both drive fine. The only difference is the gearing so it all depends on how you want to drive it.

The wide ratio version has much shorter 1st and 2nd gears so it will give you better hole shots but you'll need to shift sooner into 3rd.

Wide = 2.78, 1.93, 1.36, 1.00
Close = 2.32, 1.69, 1.29, 1.00

As you can see the spacing between the gears on the wide ratio are wider than on the close ratio, hence the names.

David is 100% correct, the close ratio transmission is excellent for racing when tied to short rear end gears.
