Do you think this is necessary?
Your friend may have point
although it's not those ribs that are causing vibrations. The normal vibrations from the motor, the uneven track surface, warped wheels and the bumps caused by going over kerbs and barriers may force the ribs to dig into the soft-cased pack. With the whole pack resting on those reletively small ribs, this is is not hard to imagine
