should i get the Limited Edition? are the extras something that i would want?
The 415 MS is considered the better car of the two for tarmac running. The 415 is better for carpet/indoor events.
The difference between the two is that the 415 MS runs the newer EVO IV lightweight suspension and has a thinner base plate (2.5mm vs. 3mm on the standard 415). This helps heaps with outdoor racing. Plus it is cheaper to upgrade a 415 MS to the MSX kit than upgrading a 415 to MSX.
The 415 is the early chassis, and is the same drive train wise as the MS, but it runs the older 414/TA04/EVO III suspension and a thicker base plate.
