Front and rear split blocks, lower roll centres front and rear, softer springs all round.
And How exactly do you mean"on edge" ?

I messaged raceberry about that, and they said most people are liking the soft chassis (marc likes the hard though), but Toni is using the soft on his bd7. Everyone in Aus is using the soft chassis and its been going very well. It also depends on grip and when you race. An example would be hard chassis during the day/heat, soft for night/cooler conditions They also said the hard chassis can be a bit better for stock classes, to keep up corner speed

The two guys I know who got the Raceberry have gone back to their V5 chassis and improved their times. So it's all just a matter of taste and driving style.

When you say the V5 is on edge do you mean the rear end is quite loose? That's kinda a characteristic of all TRF cars since the 415msx, you can dial it out with camber lengths, springs etc

I have the V5, Smokem, and Raceberry and haven't driven any yet~! Now I am building a 414M2 with a Fyberlite chassis and 417 suspension.

Next project, F103 with 1960's body.

So yea, I can't wait to try out the Raceberry chassis

Just noticed that he has a massive amount of anti rollbar sticking through the balls on the rear end, how does this effect handling? i guess its like putting a stiffer bar on???

The anti roll bar connectors must be really free to move, so the bar can actually do it's job properly! All the joints shock move freely and have no sticking points. Rather than making the car feel like it has a stiffer bar, it will likely just make the car very inconsistent, which is the worst feeling for a touring car!

Go through each of the joints in turn and figure out where it's sticking. Either stretch the ballcup out slightly, or think about fitting a new one.

I don't think a few extra mm makes as much difference as going up a bar, but yeah it would be a touch stiffer than if it was mounted at the very end
