315 or 325?

I like that the 315 has a larger cargo area (even though it is probably lame compared to some others) but don't know if a 325 can be configured with a larger cargo area at a later date.

It looks like the hardpoints are the same on the 2, but that maybe the 325 is more expensive RL money-waise because it come with 2 missile launchers?

Also, mass driver cannon in the nose vs. the tractor beam. I've got a 325, but I'm planning on going bounty hunting/ security escorting with it. The idea of a deep-space explorer does appeal to me, but I'm looking at upgrading my Freelancer to the MR for that. Maybe.

And what would that mean? What do you do while doing that?

Forgive me, I have been on a complete media blackout regarding this game... basically ever since I pledged way back when.

According to notes from the video updates and information posted on the Star Citizen site, it will be possible for players to seek out new undiscovered jump points between star systems, look for derelict wrecks and other abandoned ships, scout unexplored systems, and scan/ mine asteroids and planetoids.

Will we all live to see that? How is this thing progressing? I really don't want to jump into an unfinished game.

If you're waiting for the 'finished' game... you've got a while. It's being released in modules during Alpha and Beta testing. They should be adding racing in the next two weeks or so... looks like fun.
