i suppose you could be cynical about it, but the people that are doing it arent exactly the swindling type imo.
i mean the mods that hirosaka made to the pro4 are all intelligent.
seems to me that it would make the green house and front of the body more supported. which would help aerodynamically and in barrel rols! (landing upside down on the front of the body)
idk tho, even that fails slightly when you consider that mounting the rear posts on the shock tower is a fantastic place to do so because its VERY strong in the vertical plane.
so yeah maybe it is dollar dollar bills
and now they richer with my 2 cents
