Silver can motors are what you get in a lot of very basic entry level kits and the stock class motors are 27t ( UK, USA etc ) or 23t ( Japan ) racing motors.

I would go with the MRE version of the 415.

For silver can racing I would look at the Tamiya TA05, very free drive train and an excellent value. If you are set on the two choices you listed I would go for the EvoV, less expensive and probably better acceleration because of the shaft drive. IMHO

The TA05 is a very good car, I know quite a few guys that have put their 415's up and started racing their 05's with great results...Not stock with hop ups, still the price of a "loaded" 05 is less than the 415 or Evo 5. Their are rumors of a TRF version of the TA05.

If you are just starting out running go the belt drive, 415MRE, as it will be more forgiving as you are learning, however if you believe you have already mastered getting around a track relatively quickly, then go for the EVO5
