I never use mine because the car is already over weight Thanks in advance
Adding weight towards the rear of the car will improve rotation, moving it forward makes it more stable.

For example the heavy motormounts and the U-shaped brass weights increase steering.
The heavy battery plate makes the car a bit more stable and it also stiffens the chassis.
The heavy front bumper makes the car more stable.

It's a red one, the Blacks are completely sold out.

Updates

-New chassis, less wide and adjustable servosaver position
-New radiotray, different design and adjustable servosaver position
-Updated servosaver design, decreases the angle the trackrod needs to make between the servosaver and the servoarm
-Double reverse clutch set
-Updated lower bulkheads to allow more steering lock and to enable servosaver position adjustment
-Knurled brakeplates to enhance brakepad adhesion
-V2 Big Bore shocks

Pictures of the updated chassis and radiotray:





This allows the servosaver to be moved forward or backwards, giving more ackermann options.

Comparison between the three optional battery trays:

Carbon fibre


Brass


And the new ultra heavy Beryllium tray



The goal is to make my 2014 car light enough to use all the heavy parts and still make the min. weight limit.

The new double reverse clutch:


This clutch works in two ways, the regular way and the new, reversed, style.



Flyweights with chamfer on both sides:


And everything mounted:

DS - Is this a new car (i.e. C03) or is it a C02 with updated parts? I have a black edition and based on the pictures you posted I believe I have the chassis but not the updated radio tray. It'll be nice if I can upgrade this and the other parts mentioned if it'll work on my black edition C02.

It's the updated C02.
All of the updated parts will fit the black edition. Only problem might be the new front lower bulkheads. These have more room for the servosaver so it can move forward. I don't think these are available in black anodizing. But you can modify them with a dremel yourself , I did this to my black edition bulkheads.
