I hate those plastic clips so much.... they are somewhat more reliable in that they wont vibrate off. I can tell you though... they have some majorly annoying clips on the back sides of things that suck for people with big hands (which would be me). Other than that these are good solid cars and really arent as complicated as they seem.
