it's supposed to stiffen the chassis a bit...

from the link it claims....

Improved stability point straight ahead ◆
Steering response (There is no gain) improved!
The steering (the sharpness and linear) improvement!
Modification reduces the steering when cornering !
Improved stability when cornering!
& improved front and rear of unity!

More predictable behavior while driving ◆!
Reduces tire wear ◆!

hope this helps... :D

FYI, this is not currently available in the Americas, i.e. Kyosho America does not have this in their system yet.

I have install and tested it. Before that I prefere to race with my MR02 or MR015 over my MR03 because of driving style. But after install it, I starting to like my MR03. It make the MR03 even handling better and the most important thing is my MR03 is more predictable and consistence.

Do you have any way to check the weight that it adds to the chassis? Thanks :)

What surface? On RCP the MR-03 usually require low ride height which may make this product unusable.

Later when I reach shop, I'll check the weight and post here. No Problem.

We running on RCP. My MR 03 is lowered with 1.5mm shim and this setting can run until the front tire very thin. After install, I need to move the 1.5mm shim from the bottom knuckle to the top of the knuckle. If I put new tire, I need to change the shim position again.

This is not a problem for me because I always change the shim position from time to time depends how tick of my front tire.

I'll have PN CF front mount to adjust the body height as well.

Photo for reference.

The CF alone only 2gm. Plus the extra shim on 3gm more.

Welcome.

About the screw, actually no extra screw. Just longer. Provide by package, 2 x 8mm. Should be only 0.0x gm:D
