They shaved off so much weight that there is no need for aluminum screws and titanium turnbuckles!

"What you see in the pictures is what you see."

"Great example of the old style of drilling your chassis to drop some weight."

Great example of salesmanship B.S. with a pitch like that, making a turd sound like something I need.
