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 case makes absolutely no difference to soon as i've checked the car works ok, in the bin it goes

I have no intention of buying things on the off chance they may be worth a couple of quid more in 10 years time, I buy em to race and only buy sport versions over std if i'm too impatient to wait for a model. Likewise I never buy any limited or collectors editions to sit on a shelf.....just not interested in collecting for the sake of it.

Overall tho, I have to agree that carrera (and also proslot) boxes are far too big. My guess with carrera (and it is a guess) is they use the same box for 1/24 cars....but i have no idea if this is the 'case' cos i don't have any 1/24's

QUOTE (MR MAX @ 27 Aug 2004, 11:27)I think it's a bit stupid throwing the boxes in the bin because they are your only way of keeping the car safe off of the track, transportation etc.
That's what I like to see, insulting ppl just because they don't do things the same as you

Having the original cases is far from "the only way to keep a car safe". It's one way. Another might be....oh I don't know, say how about something like...throwing the boxes away so they don't cluuter the place up and then keep the cars in a lovely shelving cabinet you just so happen to have
