Default Swingshaft question...

This is a question I always wondered and would like to know why some manufacturers recommend lightweight swing-shafts in the rear only. My case is a Tamiya, being as how they only offer a light weight swingshaft for the rear and not the front, but why couldn't it be used for the front also? Wouldn't the rear take more stress than the front?

you can use them in the front

alot of kits come with alluminum in the front but they dont hold up as well as steel

the front is hard in parts expecialy if you use a spool and like to clip apex boards
