The MSXX-MRE are using the new "black Coated" damper kit.
Actually, you're incorrect there. I have an MRE, and an MSXX chassis plate, and I've just lined the two up against each other. The are both the same width.
The only differences are
1) 2.5 vs 2mm thick
2) front bumper mounting
3) MSXX chassis has extra tape slots 5 cell batteries
Everything else is in exactly the same position.
If your looking at the TRF415 MSXX MRE 2007 edition (man I hate long names), it also has a slighlty different rear cross brace, with no centre section (effectively, it isn't a brace, just the layshaft mount caps)
The steering is slightly different on the MSXX MRE, in that the bell cranks are above the cross brace. However, I don't believe this affects the position of the steering ball joints, so doesn't have an affect on how the system operates. Effectively it is the same as on the MRE, and MSXX.
The original MSX uses the old style steering, that the 415, 415 MS also used (twin bell cranks with carbon cross plate).
