Im going back to plastic's. My car still flexed like crazy with the aluminum brace's, so maybe it was all for show. Maybe the only thing that serve's a purpose is the rear aluminum bearing insert's.

yes front and rear. on high bite smooth tracks, ie indoor tracks, you want a stiff chassis. flex is good for rough stuff but indoor tracks are usually baby smooth.

Sorry my camera is at home with my car and I am on the road but if you look at the recent pix at the big euro race at neobuggy.com one of the factory fioroni guys has his car there with all of the fioroni parts.
