Default Sawback vs. Sawback Sports

As a noob to crawling the Sawback attracts my attention from the scale perspective. Can someone tell me the real differences between the two models? As far as I can tell the original seems to be the exact same thing except for a rollcage, new tires, and new wheels. The original is $40 cheaper and seems more true to scale based on what I know about the Willy's Jeep. If anyone knows a reason the Sports model is better (eg. upgraded components) can you point those attributes out? Right now the $40 seems like it would be better spent elsewhere.

With the sport you get the roll bar, light bar, plastic accessories and the light bucket kit.

I personally would go with the original Sawback, get the ScalerFab roll bar and buy the light bucket kit.

Thanks for the input. I didn't think any differences were substantial.

The wheels and tires are also different.

I have both the original Sawback and the Sawback Sports. Other than cosmetic differences, they are exactly the same. The wheels are different, but still plastic. The tires have a different tread pattern but don't really seem better to me. The light buckets on the roll bar would leave exposed wires, so I just left it off. If anything, I'd say the new roll cage is odd... I mean, who wants a roll bar across open door frames anyway? Makes it difficult to get in an out.

Buy the original sawback kit, and build your own cage to your liking! Best of both worlds. You can even incorporate some light mounts.

Thanks guys. If I end up with a Sawback it will be an original. I really like the scale looks of this rig but new to this and choosing a direction. I appreciate the feedback.
