If you are running magnets, then they will be similar, with the Scaleys being a fraction harder to drive.
If you are not, then the Scaley's will be better.

2 reasons, the Scaleys have a slightly faster motor, and the Carrera's have more magnetic downforce.

Chipping the Scaleys should be easy enough, and there are Carrera compatible Scaley DPR modules available to make it even easier.
