Could be in the event of an accident.. Think of the reinforcement it would add to the chassis in the event that the car rolled over on its side, slammed sideways into a wall, or had another car sideswipe you in the rear quarter panel... For that reason alone it could be worth it.

I understand what it does, and how it's supposed to do it. But the damn thing weighs a TON!!! I think it is its own gravitational force generator. Must be that fancy flake powder coating on it. No offense to Paul or his company; this is a STOUT piece of hardware. I'm thinking this will take at least 10hp away from the car...he says jokingly... : )
