Im sorry to be blaint, but the materials and the design of these LCA's are designed the same way landing gear for jets and airlines are, they are made as one peice, not tigged together and seamed. Sad thing is its 500% over the stock LCA's witch are weak and just straight junk. and an aero engineer should make these because the simple fact that if it is made the same way landing gear is made then hell a 4000LBS max vehicle realy isnt anything to even put the least amount of stress on the tubing.
