I step between 13.5 boosted and Mod (6.5t). On big race days it's 13.5.

No.
Numbers into the hundreds and thousands are normally rated at Centi Poise cps, which is another way of rating thickness. 1000cps is 70-75 wt and 700cps would be around 50-60wt.
Here's a converter. But use just as a rough guide as even different brands rated as the same weight or cps can still have quite different thickness's.

You can run the twin point steering with the servo mounted the same way as with the single point set up. You just have to shim out the ball stud a little. Here is a pic with a low profile servo. No reason this could not work with a normal sized servo...

That's Martin Hofers car from the Polish round of the ETS. Those body posts mounted off the shock tower are there to stop the rear of the body crumpling and fouling the rear tyres when lots of traffic is riding up your but....

One set of body mounts, one set of body posts, must be some rough driving going on. Lol

I think the aluminum thingies are more to provide support for the rear wing.

That would be my guess as well. It would put the down force on the chassis and not deform the body. If you look at some of the pics of his car the wing is as far back as it can go. It helps on those huge nitro tracks like the last ETS series race.

Where can you get those alloy bits? Where i race it isnt uncommon to be used as a brake into some of the corners so this would really help
