Default RE: Stronger drive shafts for RS4 3?

yeah i noticed its fairly cheap.. under $30US delivered to my door. I was actually considering it

[link]http://cgi.ebay.com.au/GPM-Alloy-3MM-Main-Chassis-fits-HPI-Nitro-RS4-3-III_W0QQitemZ170131395909QQihZ007QQcategoryZ34063Q QrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD2VQQcmdZViewItem[/link]

Theres a couple of differences between the two though, one difference is the GPM one is just a straight plate , the proper HPI superchassis has bends on its side edges, making it hard to bend in the middle area. Notice how the stock 2.5mm chassis has a curve on its side edges, those curves make it alot harder to bend and keeps the chassis rigid.

Also the GPM one is heavier i think, and the vent holes are differently placed but still a good buy for under $30. If anyone buys let me know how it goes..
