If anything were to bend, it would be alu. parts The stock parts will crack, while the alu. will bend.

I would give it a 5, looks a little on the heavy side.

Paz your TC3 lookes trick but he is right Heavy. Alum is great for durability but not so great for racing. Have you ever seen a world champ using aluminum a-arms? But if you are going for a (PIMP MY RIDE) car then go full speed ahead. Good Luck.
Thanks for listening,

It looks very nice....however stay away from curbs with those aluminum a-arms and uprights. They will not break easily but they do bend and can cause handling problems that are hard to track down.

The way that i have done it is so that if i do have a hard enough impact to bend any ally parts there are plastic where the most pressure will be so they will snap before the ally bends. It used to be on the heavy side but now that im running the lightweight diffs it has done down to about 2g over the legal limit rather than having to keep it weighted to keep it above so it doesnt effect the handling of the car. Im gettin a BMI chassis conversion soon so that might get rid of more weight

The plastic parts that i run to stop this are the wishbone pin holders under the diffs, never had a bend, snap or any problems at all with ally
