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.

QUOTE (moped rider @ 27 Dec 2003, 17:41)The SPORT models will inevitably run better without magnets because of the ground axles at the rear.
Except when the hubs are off-centre

Three of my Sports-GT40´s have wheels that are out of round and that really p..... me off. Why make ground axles etc. when they cant even make a decent hub

So, again, off with the carp-wheels (which is a shame, cause they really look good) and on with Slot-it...... It´s getting to be some pretty expensive cars in the end!

I drive without magnets, btw.
