Scalextric Cars: Do you buy Sport or Crystal Case?

I have been buying for a year now almost all my scalex in Sport edition. What about you?
Do you think it's only a marketing trick from Scalex to make us buy cars more expensive or is it really worth it? I have read that the engine should be better but to be honest I have nerver really seen the difference. Besides sometimes I regret not having the crystal case for those car. The cartoon boxes are nice but mine are always closed for lack of room to expose its opened.

Performance wise I don't notice the sport cars are any different from the standard cars. If anything I find that after a long run or as the cars get older they can actually be slower. Is this just me? I also never use the button magnet, it just makes the car boring to drive since it is practically impossible to get the car to deslot and the extra drag can slow things down.

I do like the boxes though, it makes you feel you have bought something collectable rather than racable!
