Default

aluminum in general is heavyer and stronger, but something has to give somewere, so something else usually ends up breaking instead, but worse than that, the aluinum part may bend, instead of flex like the plastic would have, and now you have a car that has a slight tweak to chase.....

stay with the plastic..

Hello Anthrocide,

You're probably referring to the GPM Al. stuffs, aren't you? I personally have had bad experience with GPM stuffs. Personal comment: Low in Quality.
