Original Xbox link up

Howdy all, bit of newbie here. I was wondering what people's experience with Xbox system link up was like (just between 2 systems - none of that LAN malarky)

Now that you can pick up an original xbox for so cheap second hand, I've been toying with the idea of getting a 2nd one, purely so I can take advantage of the system link up features on Outrun 2 and Coast 2 Coast (any other link up games after that would just be a bonus). Has anyone here played a link up game of either Outrun game and would they recommend it? Is it worth shelling out for a new system and new copy of the game(s) just to have a bit of two player fun?
