I'm not an expert but the L2 is has a much more massive platter than the Scout, which has got to be a plus. Take that for what it's worth.

From the design stand point, L2 should be a winner. Take the spindle, Scout to Aries upgrade includes larger spindle, bearing, and platter which is exactly what Clearaudio provides initially. And despite what VPI claims - all acrylic platter is superior to their older acrylic/stainless platter despite the inertia loss, VPI gives you larger platter as you move up the line which proves that inertia still matters. The old favorite, Micro Seiki and JC Verdier all have huge and high mass platter for the same reason.
Has anyone compared the sound side by side?
