Default Re: lightweight build

Take care on that.. Iv heard aluminum frames don't last very long with motors, because as you stress (Due to vibration/shock) aluminum it weakens, Steel does not weaken when not stressed past a certian limit.. (I think aluminum has a similar limit but its WAYYY lower)

So while it may be initialy strong enough, several thousand bumps and vibration from a few million revolutions on the motor may take its toll.
