If you're racing onroad, aluminum is pretty much just for looks. Not really recommended for racing. It's heavier than plactic and doesn't always do good in high speed crashes. If you want to make your car lighter and add some eye candy go with carbon fiber.
The aluminum AE shocks are good. I've never had any problems.

Alu hop ups should be meant for less flex and not only some bling2 (sometimes they do unfortunatly ). GPM reputation has not been favor since about 10 years ago.
