Maybe Sanjay will interject his wisdom.
1-1/2" speedrail would be stronger than 1-1/4", but will the extra weight and cost be needed? Do you already own a lot of 1-1/4" fittings and speedrail? If so, from a versatility standpoint, you might want to stick with 1-1/4" car mounting hardware.
But I'm not a Grip, so take the above for what it's worth.

I use 1-1/2 mostly because its the most versatile tube size. It fits scaff rigs as well as most construction fittings.
And JD is right, its much stronger.
Having said that, if I had to choose the perfect tube diameter for rigging cars it would be 1-1/4.
It is more than strong enough and is more streamlined.
I just cant be bothered spending all that money in getting a whole second set of fittings and tubes.
