I am sure I am missing something but whats the advantage of a heavier battery tray made of brass? Is it just for bling or?

My 4R tray was 50g and I added 42g of lead to make weight at the Mugen GP. Maybe 80g will work.

The issues come into play once you do things that lighten the car and that put the car in jeopardy of a DQ at a race that is tech-ed. The tray is not bling and it center of gravity configured which provides the weight in an advantage point. Also if the battery is able to go backward or forward in the tray that also provides additional advantage for weight transference front to rear or vice versa...

Went to your website, clicked on products and.... couldn't resist it... clicked on add to cart, then... Checkout, but... none about Int'l shipping...

Look from I'm here and look on your pending orders... I have an overhauled -R awaiting their new suit and their new batt plate.
