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.

The SPORT models will inevitably run better without magnets because of the ground axles at the rear. The metal bushes provide an edge in the hands of an expert racer also.

Remember that you also get a button magnet in the SPORT package which gives magnet racers an edge.

And in the right location lined up on a shelf the SPORT packaging with the lid open does present the car so much better.

It is "adult" packaging as opposed to packaging for kids. Like wine it gets better with age. Think about those SPORT cars that you purchased last year that you can no longer get now. You maturing collection looks just that little bit more special.
