They look nice, but I'd much prefer to see one in delrin, don't like aluminum on my Mini-Z's.

+1. Aluminum is the beginning of a vicious upgrade cycle. Aluminum upgrade = heavier car = more broken parts = more aluminum upgrades = even heavier car, ect ect ect...

Of course I can't speak for the drifting community. Perhaps their cars benefit from the extra mass.

Would also like to see a delrin version.

I dont think we need to get all preachy here...this from the guy who kept popping/breaking plastic knuckles and tie rods on his 03 the last time i saw him.

I think an alloy piece in this location might add a benifit other than stiffness....the added weight on the lowest part of the chassis might help reduce traction rolling.

Knuckles are even better

Ground zero released long awaited (at least from me) metal knuckles too.
Great price, well made, strong and adjustable camber, first time I see variable camber option on this scale.
Alu bottom plate, not sure so necessary.
The flex I'm getting comes from the bendy top suspension arms, not the bottom plate. But the ground zero knuckles are instead an absolute buy for anyone running ma020 imho
