The main advantage of the monoblock is it's rigidty that it will give to the chassis.
There will be less flexing of the chassis on this spot, so the carter will not get a lot of stress.
The monoblock will prevent your carter from bending.
A bend carter will lose rigidity, and afect your engine power on a negative way.
For single races like the upcoming worlds it will not be "nesecarry" , because the team drivers all have some completely new chassis with them. If Micheal Salven thinks the chassis isn't good anymore, then he will just take a new one.

Conclusion:

From wath the dutch teamdrivers told me about the part, is that it will make your chassis more durable and protected against bendeing, as well as the carter of your engine.
The backdraft is that it will aid some extra weight to your car, but that is for most drivers no problem.

I will stick with the stock engine mount (purple braces), untill I know wath engine I will get next season.
There are two versions available one Nova based, and one Picco based.
With the new Mega's (Picco) coming soon I will wait. I don't want to buy two monoblocks.

Bye Thomas.

just finished chasing down my local UPS delivery guy (i call him santa), and now am the proud owner of light clutch housing and a yellow clutch shoe... and dog bones. the rest will be here tomorrow.

the clutch just looks awesome. but i do have some questions. will i have to measure everything up again? or does it shim the same? it only has 4 threads on it... i forget what the original housing had, but both gears will fit on this right.. i am sure it will...

lovely!
